The goal The goal of the course is to introduce students to new techniques for continuous and discrete system analysis, as well as to basic methods for conventional and certain non-conventional control laws.
The outcome After passing the exam, students will have the ability of: modeling basic electromechanical systems, characterizing systems behavior in transition and steady state, forming and analysing state space models, determining stability of continuous and discrete systems, designing and tuning specific controllers, such as PID, dead-beat and Dahlin controller.
Contents of lectures DC motor modeling. Position and speed servomechanisms. System characterization in transition and steady state. Discretization of continuous system. State space models. State controllability and observability. State and output feedback. Observer design. Stability of continuous and discrete systems. Analysis and compensation of systems using Bode plots. Tuning PID, Dahlin and dead-beat controllers.
Contents of exercises Beside lectures and auditory exercises, students are obliged to do two laboratory exercises that include experiments with real time servomechanism with DC motor and observer and controller design using Matlab.
