ENEE13019 - Control Systems Analysis and Design
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEE13019 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

Students should be able to work in teams to model, analyse and investigate design options for analogue and digital control systems. On satisfactory completion students should be able to articulate typical control systems building blocks, and select appropriate components and interfaces for specific applications. In addition, students will be able to develop mathematical models to analyse the behaviour of selected dynamic systems and to design controllers for these systems. Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a residential school to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 20%
2. Practical Assessment 10%
3. Practical Assessment 10%
4. Written Assessment 20%
5. Written Assessment Pass/Fail
6. Examination 40%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Submission Online

You are expected to submit your submission electronically using the upload link in the course Moodle site. The upload link on the course Moodle site will become active as the due date for that assessment item approaches. Note the upload link closes at the time indicated (AEST) and becomes inaccessible; so upload well in advance of this submission time. It is not expected students will type up calculations. Students should scan hand calculations for online submission. If uploading a handwritten submission your handwriting must be neat and legible and be written using a permanent pen - ie. biro. No submission will be assessed that is written in pencil as they can be extremely difficult to read. In order for us to assess your submission electronically all submissions (electronic files or handwritten) must be scanned/collated as a single PDF file; no other file types are accepted. Submissions not scanned nor saved as a single PDF file will not be assessed. It is your responsibility to convert your files to PDF format. No coversheet is required when submitting assessment items electronically. Also please do not include any unnecessary graphics on the front page of your submission as it only serves to increase the size of your file and greatly increase the upload time in submitting your file. It is expected you would include a plain front page (without any unnecessary graphics) that highlights the course code and name, lecturer’s name, assessment type and number (eg. Assignment 1), your student number and then your name; list all group members. Please note it is expected you will adopt the file-naming protocol indicated on the Moodle site and for it to be followed as exactly as it is indicated. It is extremely important that you do this as your individual file is one of many and replicating the correct file-naming protocol reduces chances of omissions, losses and errors.
