Learning Outcomes

Edit Learning Outcomes Content

Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:

  • 1. Model and analyze continuous and discrete time control system in frequency domain (WA1, WA2; WK2, WK3)

    This includes deriving the transfer function of a dynamic system from a physics model, designing a continuous-time PID controller, and also convert a continuous-time controller to a discrete-time controller, constructing Bode plots for a system from its transfer function, carrying out root locus analysis of a feedback control system

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

There are 4 assignments and 2 tests, with the breakdown percentage as below. The lab report will be divided into multiple sub lab reports and the submission format and timeline will be detailed in Moodle during the semester.

Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.
