CONTROL SYSTEMS

ELE3CTS

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

A control system performs three tasks: receives data that measure process variables; compares these with desired set points; and executes command functions which control a process. Students will use software tools to simulate, analyse and design control systems and improve these systems against quality indicators. These skills can be applied within disciplines including manufacturing and automation.
