ENGR 5263G: Advanced Control
Course Description
This course builds upon the knowledge students have gained in a first control course to cover more materials in advanced control systems. Topics covered will include: a. State variables and state space models: Relations between state space models and the transfer-function models (controllable and observable canonical forms, and diagonal form), Jordan form, solutions of linear state equations, transition matrix. b. Controllability and observability: Definition and criteria, state feedback and output feedback, pole assignment via state feedback, design of servo-controlled systems. c. State estimation and observer: Observer state-variable feedback control. d. Multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems: Pole assignment via state feedback. Introduction to Linear quadratic regulator (LQR), intelligent control and model predictive control.
