INTRODUCTION
Welcome to Control and Mechatronics (MCTX3421) and Process Dynamics and Control (CHPR3433). Note that these units have the same lectures and tutorials. Only Lab 1 and Lab 2 are different. Students can attend any tutorial session (1 per week). Lab1 sign-up sheets will be available in first week of semester 2. There is no need to use OLCR for the labs or tutes. The units focus on linear control systems, stability, frequency domain analysis, root locus method, compensation and synthesis of single variable systems. The units also include the concept of mechatronics, case studies and a control project. Topics include (1) linear control systems; modeling dynamic and control systems; (2) stability criteria and methods to design system stability; (3) mechatronics; sensors, actuators, controller and dynamic systems, and their interactions; (4) frequency domain methods; root locus, Bode diagram, Nyquist plots; (5) position control; process control; PID compensation; and (6) feedback control; and active noise control ear defenders. The unit contains A team-based project including report Two short assignments Two laboratories (Lab1 & Lab2) 3 lectures per week 1 tutorial per week

Control & Mechatronics / Process Dynamics & Control Unit Outline

LEARNING OUTCOMES
On successful completion of this unit you will be able to: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. explain classical control theory and its applications analyse linear control systems explain stability of feedback control systems apply frequency domain methods of analysis and design appreciate the limitations of classical control techniques

LEARNING ACTIVITIES
In the 3 lectures per week the various topics of classical control will be introduced with the use of practical examples. In the tutorials specific problems will be discussed relating to the lecture material and solutions worked out. Students are expected to contribute to class discussion. Labs will be used to reinforce the topics learnt in lectures and tutorials and also provide students the opportunity to see an application of advanced control in practice.

STUDENT FEEDBACK
We welcome your feedback as one way to keep improving this unit. Later this semester, you will be encouraged to give unit feedback through SPOT (Student Perception of Teaching) and SURF, UWAs online student feedback system. Informal feedback via email or face to face is also encouraged. Feedback is confidential. Recent changes to this unit in response to student feedback include: 1. Including practical examples in lectures and tutorials 2. provide written help/explanation with difficult topics

Academic Conduct
Academic Conduct Essentials
It is a University requirement that all newly enrolled students complete a short compulsory online unit called Academic Conduct Essentials (ACE) within the first 10 weeks of semester. ACE can be accessed via WebCT (http://webct.uwa.edu.au/webct/entryPageIns.dowebct ). To find out more about Academic Integrity, look at these great resources: Student Services, who run workshops on Academic Integrity http://www.studentservices.uwa.edu.au/ss/learning http://www.ryerson.ca/academicintegrity/index.html , a series of flash videos from a Canadian University exploring Academic Integrity http://www.lc.unsw.edu.au/onlib/plag.html which takes you to an on-line quiz where you test your understanding of plagiarism, and where there are links to other universities academic integrity pages.

STUDENTS RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES


It is the responsibility of every student to be aware of all relevant legislation, policies and procedures relating to their rights and responsibilities as a student.
