Linear Systems and Control

Course code ELE2103

Given that all engineering processes are time varying in nature, it is highly desirable to be able to model and thence 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.
