Prerequisites and co-requisites

Engineering fundamentals (mathematics and physics) Fundamentals of electrical engineering

Course content

This class deals with signals in time and frequency domains, scanning procedure and its effects, discrete-time processing of analogue signals, system descriptions in time and frequency domains (using Laplace and z transformations, transmission function, frequency response, bode diagram, pole and zero coefficients).

Learning outcomes

This lecture is part of the module on automation engineering. This module provides students with an overview of the necessary fundamentals for the automation of technical systems (especially electrical actuator applications). Proceeding from a theoretical system analysis and the measurement of process signals, students are able both to understand the applied influence of dynamic systems in both analogue and digital domains and to apply the most important methods.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Lecture with exercises, laboratory exercises, self-study

Assessment methods and criteria

Written examination
