Teaching Period (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):

I-II (autumn) 2019-2020

Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After completing the course the student can: explain the main analysis and synthesis methods to be systematically used in the control of multivariable processes, formulate a well-defined control problem for multivariable processes, choose and implement a suitable solution (method and algorithms) to the control problem, evaluate the performance of the solution, understand the fundamental restrictions in control.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Basic model types of multivariable linear systems. Structural properties of multivariable systems. Canonical control configurations. Analysis of the closed-loop system by sensitivity functions. Fundamental restrictions in control. Relative gain array analysis and decoupling compensators.  Dynamic programming and linear quadratic control.  Loop shaping techniques. Introduction to model predictive control

Details on the course content (applies in this implementation): 

•Classical
control theory: SISO-systems, linear or linearized system models
•Extension
to multivariable (MIMO) systems
•Performance
and limitations of control
•Uncertainty and robustness,
•IMC-control,
•LQ
and LQG control
•Optimal control
•Basics
of Robust control
•Optional:  Introduction to Model Predictive
Control

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Two intermediate exams or full exam, homework assignments, which are assessed

Elaboration of the evaluation criteria and methods, and acquainting students with the evaluation (applies in this implementation): 

•Two
intermediate
exams
or
one
full
exam
are
needed
to pass
the course.  The intermediate exams have 3 problems each, max
15+15 = 30 points.  The full exam has five problems, max. 30 points altogether.

•First intermediate exam on Thursday
24.10.2019, 14:00-16:00
T3.  The second intermediate exam on Thursday
12.12.2019, 14:00-16:00
T3. Intermediate exams cannot be repeated.  The first full exam is on Tuesday 17.12.2019, 13:00-16:00 AS1.. You can participate to all above exams without separate registration (the registration to the course is sufficient).  To all later exams you have to register.

•Six
homework
problems
are
given
during the course.
You
must
do
and leave
for evaluation
at least
three
homework
problems.  However,
to get more homework points it
is reasonable to do as many homework exercises as possible, preferably them all.  The homework results are scaled to give a maximum of 6
points to be added to
the exam result.    The final grade is determined based on
the sum of two intermediate exams (or full exam) and
the homework points. The grade evaluation is done based on
0-36 points.  18 points is always enough to
pass.

Workload (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Lectures, Exercise hours, Self-study, Homework assignments

Contact hours: 48h
Independent study: 85h

Details on calculating the workload (applies in this implementation): 

Lectures 2x12h = 24 h

Exercises 2x12h = 24h

Independent study (assignments, reading and calculating) 85 h

Total 133h

Study Material (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Glad, Ljung: Control Theory, Multivariable and Nonlinear Methods (Taylor and Francis 2000). Lecture slides, Exercises with solutions.

Details on the course materials (applies in this implementation): 

Lecture slides + exercises with solutions = the main material
