G1F: has less than 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
G1E: contains specially designed degree project for Higher Education Diploma
G2F: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
G2E: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements, contains degree project for Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science
GXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified.
A1N: has only first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
A1F: has second-cycle course/s as entry requirements
A1E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (60 credits)

120 credits including Automatic Control I. English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden ("English 6").
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
determine relations between multivariable dynamic models in form of state space models and transfer functions
analyse multivariable dynamic systems with respect to stability, sensitivity for disturbances, statistical properties, and controllability and observability
analyse dynamic systems influenced by noise, and to determine stationary variances for given linear models
design optimal observers (Kalman filters)
design controllers for linear multivariable systems based on linear quadratic (LQ) control
account for the principles behind model predictive control (MPC)
evaluate controllers in laboratory work on real processes
Mathematical description of linear multivariable systems in continuous and discrete time. Controllability and observability. Stability. Description of disturbances and their effects. Controller synthesis using linear quadratic theory and the separation theorem. Model predictive control.
Lectures, problem solving sessions, tutorials and laboratory work. Guest lecture. Non-compulsory homework assignments.
Written examination at the end of the course (4 credits). Passed laboratory course is also required (1 credit).
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
