Modelling, dynamics and control by Anthony Rossiter

All Tutorial Sheets

This page offers a quick overview of all the tutorial sheets available. The tutorials are grouped into chapters as shown in the left hand index.
Content will cover a broad range of topics, mostly aimed at years 1 and 2 of engineering undergraduate. In addition to these tutorials, there are a few web-based quick fire questions you can try.

Tutorials on mathematical skills: roots of polynomials, Laplace Transforms, Inverse Laplace, Complex numbers, Logarithms and exponentials, Binomial expansions for A level, Logarithms for A level, Trigonometry for A level, Simultaneous equations, matrices and determinants.

Tutorials on linear models and behaviours: Modelling principles and analogies, modelling of 1st and 2nd order systems, responses of 1st and 2nd order systems, classifying behaviours.

Tutorials on concepts of feedback and control: Block diagrams, impact of uncertainty, importance and impact of feedback, closed-loop offsets, simple design approaches.

Tutorials on classical control analysis and design tools: root-loci, Bode diagrams, Nyquist diagrames, gain/phase margins, lead and lag compensation.

Tutorials on discrete systems: Time series, sampling, z-transforms, ZOH, control desigh, Tustin transforms.
