This paper describes an assignment study that is undertaken by undergraduate students who have elected to study the digital/state-space control module as part of their Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree course at Heriot-Watt University. The assignment is based around the inverted pendulum example and uses the computer package MATLAB/SIMULINK. An advantage of the way the assignment is structured is that unique solutions do not exist for the choice of the compensator, sample rate and discretisation method.
