Concepts of linear Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) systems, state-space representation of process systems, linear spaces and linear operators, controllability and observability analysis, Lyapunov stability analysis, stability of interconnected systems, linear optimal control, frequency-domain analysis and controller synthesis for MIMO process systems. Introduction to model predictive control, system identification, robus control, decentralised control. In addition, there will be a project component on an individual study basis. The individual study project is to be chosen in the areas identified by codes A-Artificial Intelligency, F-Computer Modelling and Design and Q-Process Control advanced (see School for details).

This course assumes that you have an appropriate background in process control at undergraduate level. If this is not the case, please consult your program authority about the possibility of taking the undergraduate course CEIC3006 as one of your program electives, prior to attempting CEIC8102.
