Module Description:This subject aims to review feedback control theory in time domain and introduce control theory in frequency domain. It deals with introduction to design of feedback control systems, time-domain and frequency-domain performance measures, stability and degree of stability, disturbance and sensitivity. In addition, some advanced PLC programming skills is introduced.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Explaining and reporting the application of feedback control theory in time domain and in frequency domain.
LO2 Analyse the effect of disturbances, parameter variation and noise on system performance.
LO3 Perform analysis and design of linear feedback control systems using frequency domain theory
LO4 Design control systems using some classical techniques, such as Root Locus and Bode plot
LO5 Design, develop and implement PLC programming for some simple control systems
LO6 Define a problem, analyse , design, implement and evaluate a solution
LO7 Communicate effectively as part of a team, as well as formally presenting their findings verbally and in written documents.
