The Signal Processing and Control Systems research group was elevated to the Center for Signal Processing and Control Systems (CSPaCS) in April 2012. It consists of over 20 members from the departments of Electronics & Communication Engineering, Electrical Power Engineering and Mechanical Engineering of the College of Engineering, Universiti Tenaga Nasional.
Signal Processing is the foundation of most areas of technology, from the tiny ICs to the large power systems, satellites, etc. With the recent phenomenal development in the areas of digital computations, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) has become one of the most powerful technologies that will shape science and engineering in the twenty-first century. Revolutionary changes have already been made in diverse fields such as communications, medical imaging, radar & sonar, high fidelity music reproduction, and power systems, to name just a few. DSP has become the basis of many areas of technology, from mobile phones to modems and multimedia PCs. DSP devices account for a significant proportion of worldwide semiconductor sales, amounting to billions of dollars annually.
With the ever-increasing demands on systems from cars to aircraft and satellites, control Systems has come to play a pivotal role in extracting maximum performance in the presence of uncertainties and disturbances. This has resulted in the growth of several control theories and methodologies.
CSPaCS at UNITEN strives to bring all researchers in the areas of signal processing and control systems together to enable better interaction.
