Control Systems Design Seminar
An advanced one day seminar covering the design of linear time invariant control systems The course expands upon materials covered in the Control Theory Fundamentals seminar, comprising a deeper coverage of dynamical systems modelling and feedback control. Note that discrete time systems are not covered. The seminar would especially suit experienced analogue design engineers.
Agenda

Dynamical systems

The root locus method

Frequency response

Feedback systems

Nyquist geometry

Loop shaping

Sensitivity & tracking

Design for robustness
The Control Systems Design seminar is ideally suited to experienced analog design engineers wishing to brush up their skills or to investigate new concepts. Like other servomatter courses, the material is delivered in an informal and interactive lecture style setting, with much use made of whiteboard and Matlab based tutorials. Attendees receive a printed copy of the seminar manual which serves as a useful postseminar resource and is ideal for notetaking during the course. There are no formal prerequisites, however attendees should possess an understanding of basic engineering mathematics.
