Module Overview

Control Systems Design

This subject aims to review feedback control theory in time domain and introduce control theory in frequency domain. It deals with introduction to design of feedback control systems, time-domain and frequency-domain performance measures, stability and degree of stability, disturbance and sensitivity. In addition, some advanced PLC programming skills is introduced.
