					 Automatic Control Fundamental
Course Description
Advanced control systems have created the world's most advanced distribution
automation suite, including designing, planning, management and automatic feeder
restoration. This course ranges from revision of classical control, with particular attention
to PID controllers, through to some recent developments in model-based multi-input
multi-output control design. Throughout the course examples of successful applications
of the theory to real industrial problems are demonstrated through case studies, the aim
being to develop Participants insight and intuition in dealing with real control engineering
problems. The key feature of the course is the hands-on sessions interspersed with the
theory, where participants continually put into practice what is taught in lectures.

Course Goal:
The main goal that the course aims to achieve is to provide practical knowledge and tools
for design, analysis and implementation of both conventional and advanced control
strategies.

Course Objectives:
By the end of the course, participant will be able to:
      1. Understand the basic concepts of the design of control systems using different
         techniques.
      2. Apply knowledge of methods for system identification and control design to
         the application. Insight into the process of experimental performance analysis
         and controller re-design.
      3. Compare between different types of control systems
      4. Analyze linear discrete-time systems.
      5. Analyze and design digital control systems.
