EE4-24 Discrete-time Systems and Computer ControlLecturer(s): Prof Thomas Parisini
The main aim is to introduce theoretical techniques for studying discrete-time linear systems with particular emphasis on the properties and design of sampled-data feedback control systems.
After the course the students will be able to determine discrete-time equivalent models of continuous-time systems, in the presence of DA and AD converters, and to design discrete-time control systems using the Z-transform, the W-transform, the root locus, and the discrete-time Nyquist analysis.
Aspects of digital signal processing relevant to modelling and the implementation of digital controllers are studied using the Z-, W- and discrete-time Fourier transforms. Discrete-time control systems are analysed and synthesised using root-locus, Nyquist and state-space techniques, bearing in mind the necessity for bounded-input bounded-output stability, small tracking error and robustness.
