Control Systems

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.

The content is relatet to automation and control of industrial process, including matematical modeleing and simulation, state space analysis, transfer functions, frequency response analysis, and tuning of standard controllers (P, PI, PID).

Learning outcome

  • To understand the consept of mathematical modelling and simulation.
  • The student shall understand the consept of negative feedback

  • To organize models as state space models and to perform linearization
  • To present mathematical models as block diagrams
  • To find transfer functions and og utføre frekvensresponsanalyse av modeller.
  • To investigate stability issues and calibrate standard regulators (P, PI, PID).

General competance:
  • After this course, the student shall understand the concept of system and control theory.
