TRC3600 - Modelling and control
6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL
Undergraduate Faculty of Engineering
Leader(s): Dr S Khoddam (Clayton); Dr Edwin Tan (Sunway)
Instruction on automatic control of electromechanical systems, including analysis, experimental, and computational techniques (with Matlab/Simulink). Control system design through state-space and digital control methods for application to mechatronics, with particular focus on compensators, controllability, observability, z-transform time discretization, and the basics of control of nonlinear systems.
Students are expected to gain the ability to model and control mechatronics systems through analysis, computational, and experimental methods; master the fundamentals of modern and digital control theories in order to apply them to the design of control systems, and understand the significance and difficulty associated with nonlinear phenomena in control system design.
