## ENGN6223 — Control Systems

code: ENGN6223 Control Systems 6 Control Systems is the study of the analysis and regulation of the output behaviors of dynamical systems subject to input signals. The concepts and tools discussed in this course can be used in a wide spectrum of engineering disciplines such as mechanical, electrical, aerospace, manufacturing, and biomedical engineering. The emphasis of this course will be on the basic theories and feedback controller design methods of linear time-invariant systems. https://programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/course/ENGN6223 Demonstrate systematic understanding of the principles and consequences of feedback mechanisms in dynamical systems.Define and explain feedback and feed-forward control architecture and discuss the importance of performance, robustness and stability in control design.Apply linearisation techniques to nonlinear systems and perform controllability and observability analysis to linear time-invariant systems.Design controllers using state-feedback and output-feedback and basic linear quadratic optimality in feedback design.Compute gain and phase margins from Bode diagrams and Nyquist plots and understand their implications in terms of robust stability.Design and implement feedback controllers for real-world dynamical systems.
