ELE2103 Linear Systems and Control

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering

Other requisites

Recommended prior or concurrent study: MAT1502 or MAT1102


Given that all engineering processes are time varying in nature, it is highly desirable to be able to model and hence predict their behaviour in time. This course initiates the skills necessary for the analysis, modification and achievement of specific behaviour in dynamic engineering systems. At present, it is linear analysis which provides the most general and useful solutions to engineering problems. The ability to control the performance of dynamic systems is an essential part of most engineering tasks. The study of classical control techniques and hardware provides an introduction to many of the problems that face the control engineer. Attention will be restricted to single input single output systems.
