Course Aims

This is an introductory course in feedback control. It is designed for second year students who have completed their foundation courses in mathematics, mechanics and electronics. It covers control theory fundamentals and equips students with basic skills to analysis and design con-trol systems. Control experiments are incorporated in this course to enable students to explore control concepts in practice. After this course, students may proceed to higher level courses such as motion control design and computer controlled systems.
