Among the various well-known intelligent control techniques, the methods of fuzzy control and neural net-based learning control are first introduced to allow for handling ambiguous/uncertain situations and effective supervised learning, respectively. Specifically, the theory of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic-based inference mechanism are studied and the design techniques of fuzzy control are introduced. Then, the neural net learning structure is discussed and the control system based on artificial neural nets is studied. Fuzzy-neuro systems are also considered. In the second part of the course work, some other computational intelligence techniques such as GA and the rough set are briefly covered and then the basic machine learning techniques and the reinforcement learning method are studied in conjunction with their use in control system design. (Prerequisite: EE581)
Topics include system representation (input-output description, state variable description), solutions of linear dynamical equations, controllability and observability, irreducible realization, stability (BIBO stability, Lyapunov stability) for a rigorous treatment of linear systems. In addition, feedback linearization is to be covered.
This course describes the analysis and design of digital control systems. Sampling and data reconstruction and Z-transform in computer control system will be covered. Analysis and design of digital control systems using frequency domain techniques will be introduced. Also, the design of the digital control system using state space approaches will be covered. As a term project, a real-time digital control system will be implemented on a microprocessor system.
This course covers the design and analysis of the topology about the DC / DC converter, PFC (Power Factor Correction) circuit and control method in that topology. Also, the topology such as an inverter, resonant converter, and active power filter is introduced, and the control algorithm of that topology is studied in this course. Finally, the state of the art in power conversion system is discussed, and every student carries out a term project about design and modeling of a power supply. On completion of this course, students will have built confidence in their ability to design and analyze the power conversion system.
