|Learning and teaching strategies
||Lecture, Question and Answer, Preparing and/or Presenting Reports, Experiment, Problem Solving, Other: This course must be taken together with ELE430 COMPUTER CONTROL.
||The aim is to provide a better understanding of the theoretical subjects taught in "ELE 430 Computer Control" course via computer simulations and experiments carried out on laboratory setups, and to allow students to improve their abilities in this respect.
||A student who completes the course successfully is expected to 1. Understand the relationship and transformations between continuous-time and discrete-time systems . 2. Be able to implement continuous-time controllers on digital platforms such as microcontrollers or DSP cards or computers. 3. Design and implement digital control systems. 4. Be aware of practical issues and physical limitations concerning digital control systems. 5. Be acquired a suitable background to study more advanced digital control problems.
||A/D-D/A converters, sampling and zero order hold. Digital control of a servo system and observing the effects of sampling rate on the performance. Response of discrete-time systems and examining the effects of pole zero location. Comparing different discrete-time approximations of continuous-time systems. Experimenting with root locus and Bode design techniques. Pratical aspects and computer implementation of a PID controller. Experimenting with state feedback and observers.
