Course

Control and Instrumentation


Course code ELE2101

Efficient production requires that industrial processes produce the required outputs.  Control systems are used to ensure the desired outputs.  To work with control systems, the user must be able to predict the overall system response from a knowledge of the dynamic behaviour of each of the various components that make up the system.

This course covers the elements of classical control.  A good grounding in the understanding of the dynamic behaviour of systems is followed by a study of the elements that make up some control systems.  Standard technics for modifying the behaviour of control systems are examined.  Particular studies of real world control systems are used to bring together the topics previously covered.
