Principles of Communications - week 6/L11 21/11/2019

Finished Control Theory, Started Scheduling.

Further notes on control theory here .
Things to remember - we don't do the Laplace transfom to solve the sysem - we do it to see what different controllers might do in terms of stability and limits. Also note the composition rules for sysems in the s-transform are really simple....the actual controller is to be implemented "back" in the time domain of course...

Scheduling - to remember :

  • conservation law
  • fairness
  • round robin...
