Control System Design


Concerning my undergraduate final project, I am to design a controller. First things first, let me share you a little bit of what I’ve learned about the process and methods for designing a control system. This post also serves as a parameter for my progress documentation of the project.

The process of designing a control system usually makes many demands of the engineer or engineering team. These demands often emerge in step by step design procedure as follows:

  1. Study the system (plant) to be controlled and obtain initial information about the control objectives.
  2. Model the system and simplify the model, if necessary.
  3. Analyze the resulting model; determine its properties. More

means “first amongst equals”

Well, named it so mainly because this is the first post I made in 2009. Hopefully this will be the first among any other post(s) that will follow next time.

The year 2009 started with a hellish January for me. Some of you might know that I was the head of 2009 ITB power engineering excursion committe, I am eternally grateful for all of the participation given by various parties as to make this event held successfully. Thank you.

The event was fun, educative, and most of all memorable. Some of friends are to graduate next July, there’s a possibility that we wont be meeting each others for a while and maybe for a long time, so the excursion event was also purposedly intended for our last time “going out and hanging out” together as college students. Good luck guys, my prayers are with you.

January finally passed and then came along More

Oh Goodbye Dreams..


Untuk semua yang punya YM Saya, pasti sering ngeliat judul diatas sebagai status Saya.. biasanya ada tambahan juga “au revoir la France”..

Ada sebuah quote dari film the Great Debaters,

When I was a child, I talk like a child, I think like a child

But when I have grown into a man, I put all the childish things away

yah mungkin redaksinya agak berbeda, yang jadi permasalahan adalah:

Is “dreaming” considered to be a childish thing?

Baru beberapa saat yang lalu temen Saya berinisial R bilang, jangan kebanyakan mimpi, yang real aja, lo dah gede.

So, does growing up mean giving away your dreams?

Argh.. More

Hell Freezes Over.. (a story of one morning in Bandung)


Well, it is 7 o’clock in the morning.. I just got back from campus, after spending a night there doing some research. And I tell you about the journey home.. Dang! It was agonizingly cold! the temperature dropped below 20 C (I guess :P), and in equatorial country such as Indonesia, it IS considered to be cold.

How come? It is none other than because the rain was constantly pouring down all over the night, beginning at about 8pm last night, then it just steadily got heavier until when I got up at about 6am the rain was already over, leaving trails of soil scent and the cold breeze seeping through the window.
