GENG5503 Modern Control Systems
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- The topics covered in this unit include (1) modelling—state–space equations (MIMO, continuous and discrete), linearisation; transfer functions, similarity transformations, some standard useful realisations (canonical forms); discretisation of state-space equations; and introduction to sampled-data systems; (2) analysis—controllability, observability, minimality, and Lyapunov stability analysis; and (3) design—controller and observer design, and pole-placement and optimal control techniques. The academic objectives of the unit are to demonstrate the ability to model dynamical systems using state–space equations; understand the concept of controllability, observability, minimality and stability; understand state-feedback and output feedback concepts, design state-feedback controllers and state observers; and understand analysis and design of sampled-data systems.
- Students are able to (1) derive state-space equations and transfer functions for dynamical systems and differentiate between them; (2) discretise continuous-time state-space equations to obtain discrete-time state-space models; (3) analyse the characteristics of state-space realisations using controllability, observability, minimality and stability concepts; (4) design control systems using state and output feedback concepts; (5) analyse sampled data control systems using starred Laplace transform and z-transforms; and (6) communicate effectively through concise written technical reports, using discourse conventions relevant to the discipline.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) computer exercises; (2) class tests; and (3) final examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is only available in this unit in the case of a student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
