## Learning outcomes

Students who pass the course should be able to

• define basic concepts in automatic control
• determine relations between different model representations
• analyse linear time-invariant systems with respect to relevant properties
• design and implement simple controllers

## Content

System models: State-space forms and the solution of the state-space equation in discrete and continuous time. Sampling. Transfer functions and transfer operators. Model transformations from transfer functions to state-space models and vice versa.

System properties: Controllability and observability. Static gain. Step and impulse responses in discrete and continuous time. Frequency domain properties (connection to sampling). Stability in discrete and continuous time; asymptotic stability, bounded-input bounded-output stability, the Nyquist criterion.

Controller design: Pole placement in state-space form. State feedback with observer. PID controllers. Stability margins. Sensitivity functions. The notion of robustness. Computer implementation (sampling, aliasing).

## Instruction

Lectures, problem solving sessions and laboratory work.

## Assessment

Written examination at the end of the course. Passed laboratory course is also required.
