Part 3: Investigation of State Space Analysis Techniques (50 marks)
In this section, the task is to research the state space analysis approach to signals and systems design and investigation and to produce a concise (~1500 – 2500 words) research report describing your findings.
You should explain what the state space analysis approach is (the final chapter in the textbook is a good starting point), its advantages and disadvantages, and what types of problems it is appropriate for. You should identify in the literature particular classes of problems that state space analysis techniques have been applied to, provide a review of the methods that have been proposed to address those problems and the outcomes realised. You should also include a section on the state space analysis of the accelerometer analysed in Parts 1 and 2. Finally you should provide a conclusion contrasting the different methods researched and discussing how useful you think state space analysis approaches are to the researched problem area.
Note: A summary of the textbook content is NOT considered sufficient. A minimum of 2 other academic sources need to be referenced.
