Course content

System description in time and frequency domain (Laplace transformation, pole-zero map, transfer function, steady-state errors, root locus, frequency response, Bode diagram), block diagrams and system identification; standard requirements of a control circuit, behaviour and implementation of standard controllers, standard closed loop systems, stability and control performance, controller synthesis, and other circuit structures. It also deals with use of the root locus method for the analysis and synthesis of analogue controllers. Outlook to synthesis of digital controllers (sampled-data systems).

Learning outcomes

Intro to the most important methods for the analysis and synthesis of continuous, linear dynamic systems, in particular control circuits. The application of these methods is practised using appropriate simulation software. Additionally students are introduced to the most important procedures for the description and synthesis of linear systems (in particular control circuits) and to how to apply them.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Lectures and practical lab exercises appropriate simulation software.

Assessment methods and criteria

Final comprehensive written examination.
