Learning outcomes

Students who pass the course should be able to


  • define basic concepts in automatic control

  • determine relations between models of linear dynamic systems in form of differential equations, state space models, transient responses, transfer functions and frequency responses

  • analyse linear systems with respect to stability, steady state properties, controllability and observability, and fastness and damping

  • evaluate closed loop systems with respect to stability, as well as robustness against and sensitivity for model errors and disturbances

  • interpret and apply graphical methods and tools like block diagrams, root locus, Bode and Nyquist diagrams

  • understand the function of simple controllers (PID controllers, lead-lag filters, state feedback) and controller structures (feedforward and cascade control)

  • design simple controllers from given specifications

  • understand and design observers for estimating the states in state space models

Content

Modelling and mathematical description of dynamic systems in the time and frequency domain:
Impulse response, step response, transfer function, Bode and Nyquist diagrams, state space description. Estimation of states using observers. Methods for stability analysis including the Nyquist criterion.
Control strategies:
