8.       Explain the concept of the optimal control of the system

9.       Apply the concept of optimal control on a real problem



Introductory the theory control linear, the principle of the modeling, transfer function, state space formulation, linear system time continuous and the solution, stability, controllability, observability, stabilizability, detectability , feedback control and optimal control.

Soft skill Attribute

Discipline , honesty , cooperation and communication

Study/exam achievements:

The assessments include the essay test (quiz, middle exam, final exam) and group presentations (assignment).


Final score (NA) is calculated as follow: 10% soft skill + 20% quiz+ 25% assignment + 25% UTS (middle exam) + 20% UAS (final exam)


Final index is defined as follow:

A      :    75 100


AB    :    70 - 74.99

B      :    65 - 69.99

BC    :    60 - 64.99

C      :    55 - 59.99

D      :    40 - 54.99

E       :      0 - 39.99
