Real-time Control System Design, Analysis & Implementation with Scilab/Xcos

 Using the hardware to make the class more fun! This could be achieved by  Scilab/Xcos with other addons to make the interfacing to the physical world.

 


“Scilab/Xcos is not just for simulation or computation, but also a tool to communicate with physical hardwares”

Course Synopsis

image003

Control Design and implementation is a challenging field, in which it covers from the modeling to the implementation that involves extensive knowledge covering different knowledge domains and platforms. Teaching control subjects is even more challenging, as different stages might need different software for illustration, while for the software which claimed to be able to integrate all process together, is too expensive to be acquired and impractical when the students going to industry, as the industry would not afford the expensive software most of the time.

This course makes this scenario different. We use the software chain which cover from control system modeling, analysis, design, simulation and implementation, all under open source environment!

The more interesting part is, user does not need to know about C-coding, and they could control the control plant at the end of the course. Using the block diagram approach, the real-time code on the RTOS are automatically generated and implemented to the controller!

 

Course Objectives
