Course Description:
Rationale and Purpose of the Module: The module introduces students to some basic control theory, Dynamic System Modelling, open- and closed-loop systems, signal flow graphs, time response of first and second order systems. This module also gives students a basic introduction (from the control perspective to support the control theory and dynamic systems modelling) to some of the basic devices used in control, including actuators, sensors and transducers. Syllabus: Dynamic System Modelling: Laplace Transform method, open and closed loop systems, signal flow graphs, transfer functions, time response of first and second order systems. Laboratory Work: Modelling and simulation of dynamic systems using Matlab Simulink and LabVIEW. Basic laboratory exercises, including data acquisition from sensors. Introduction to instrumentation. Sensor characteristics. Signal conditioning. Review of typical sensors.
