FYS120, MA-154 and MA-160 or equivalent.
After completing the course, the student is expected to be able to:
model simple linear mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems and describe such systems as block diagrams
dimension and tune the parameters in a PID controller
analyse stability and performance for a PID-based control system
use the tools LabView, Matlab and SimulationX to analyse, develop and simulate a control system
Theoretical knowledge and methods for control of dynamic systems and practical applications of control theory. Static and dynamic modelling of thermic, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems. Negative feedback, design and analysis of block diagrams. Mathematical foundation for control theory. Standard transfer functions, dynamic analysis, zeros and poles. Frequency response methods and standard forms. Practical PID control. Stability and performance of a control system. Frequency response design, cascade controllers and feedforward control. Use of simulation tools.
Teaching methods and workload
Lectures and exercises.
Satisfactory submission of compulsory assignments. Information will be given in Canvas at the start of the semester.
Assessment methods and criteria
5-hour written examination. Graded assessment.
The study programme manager, in consultation with the student representative, decides the method of evaluation and whether the courses will have a midterm- or end of term evaluation, see also the Quality System, section 4.1. Information about evaluation method for the course will be posted on Canvas.
