EGH445 Modern Control

This unit develops fundamental concepts and methods used for modelling, analysis and control design of complex engineering systems. The unit introduces a general class of models for complex systems known as state-space. This class of models allows the development of control techniques and designs that shape and modify the behavior of the system. In particular, the classical state and output-feedback regulators, integral action, observer design, and optimal control are studied and used to solve stabilisation problems. The control design problem is discussed in both continuous-time and discrete-time domains, allowing for the study of both ideal and real systems. The implementation of digital controllers is included, building knowledge in the practical application of control designs into real systems. Thus, this unit provides a set of modern tools for control design of engineering systems currently used in real-life applications.
