This three-day course introduces the basic concepts of robust and reliable control system and problems associated with multivariable systems.
Advanced Control technique such as Linear-Quadratic Optimal Control, H-infinity and Predictive Control are illustrated in the lectures. In addition, state estimation using Kalman filter and Fault detection, tolerant and reconfiguration are also included in this course. Available computer design packages are discussed and examples during hands-on sessions are used to reinforce the understanding of the course.
The course will be held in Strathclyde University, Glasgow (map and travel directions).
Glasgow City Centre offers a wide range of accommodation, you can find our recommendations here.
