WB2207-07: Systems and Control Engineering
Responsible Instructor: prof.dr. R. Babuška
Instructor: H.J. Bijl, MSc
Contact Hours / Week x/x/x/x: 4/0/0/0
Education Period: 1
Start Education: 1
Exam Period: 1, 2
Course Language: Dutch
Required for: wb2420
Expected prior knowledge: wb2104 (Systeem- en regeltechniek 1),WB101-05 (Cluster Wiskunde)
Course Contents: The course deals with the representation, analysis and control of linear time-invariant dynamic systems.
Both the transfer function and state-space models are covered.
A strong focus will be on the drawing and interpretation of bode, root-locus and nyquist plots for system stability analysis and feedback control design. In this perspective, the concepts of gain, phase margin, static and dynamic
compensation will be taught. Different compensations that get attention are: PD-compensation, lead compensation, PI
compensation, Lag compensation and PID compensation.
Other control theoretical aspects of sensitivity functions, robustness, time delay, state-space control design and pole
placement will also be treated.
Study Goals: The student is able to:
- Represent a dynamic system as a transfer function and a state-space model.
- Analyze the influence of a given controller on the closed-loop dynamics by using the root-locus method.
- Sketch a root-locus for simple dynamic systems.
- Sketch a Nyquist plot for simple dynamic systems.
- Sketch a Bode plot for a given dynamic system.
- Analyze the properties of a dynamic system in the frequency domain.
- Given requirements on stability margins, design a controller in frequency domain.
- Analyze the influence of time delay on the closed-loop performance.
- Design a state-feedback controller by pole placement.
- Use effectively Matlab and Simulink for control design purposes.
Education Method: - Lectures (4 hours per week) including several instructions.
- Practical work (2 hours per week for 3 weeks) consisting of Matlab/ Simulink control design and simulation and the implementation of a controller for a DC motor.
Computer Use: MATLAB and SIMULINK will be used in the instruction lectures and the practical work. It will be stimulated to check examples from the book and lectures yourself in MATLAB.

Assessment: See Dutch description
Enrolment / Application: Students need to enroll for this course in BlackBoard in order to participate!
Remarks: Participation and successful completion of the practical work is required to obtain a mark for the course. The students
are strongly advised to prepare well for the instruction lectures as it is strongly connected to the practical work.
During the lectures, instructions and practical work, there will be the possibility of interaction.
Percentage of Design: 25%
Design Content: Designing control systems and evaluation of performance of the designed systems.
