Modern control theory. State-space representation. Controllability and observability.
In this course, students will learn how to design computer-based systems capable of monitoring and controlling dynamic systems, especially in the industrial field. Thus, the contents studied will allow us to modify the behavior of a system to suit the needs of the industry, so as to fulfill certain specifications (e.g. speed, accuracy, etc.)..
There are numerous examples of application of the control in the state space in the industry. For example:
- Processing industries, such as oil, chemical, steel, power generation and distribution, food, etc. to control variables such as temperature, pressure, flow, etc.
- Transport systems such as cars, trains, planes, missiles, etc. to control variables such as position, velocity, etc.
- Machine tools, thermal and hydraulic machines, electrical machines (motors, generators) to control position, speed, power, etc.
