Course Contents:

We study properties of dynamic systems and how these properties can be influenced via control. To this aim we first develop mathematical models for the dyamic behavior of systems based on first principles. This includes both linear and nonlinear models as well as linearization. Next, we analyze several important system properties in the time and the frequency domain. We introduce the concept of feedback control and discuss its effects on the system properties. Finally, we present several feedback control approaches to influence the system properties, with an emphasis on PID controllers.

Study Goals:

At the end of the course the students should be able to
1. to describe simple physical systems (in particular electrical, mechanical, electro-mechanical, fluid, and thermodynamic systems) using bond graphs
2. to derive mathematical dynamics models for such systems
3. to linearize non-linear models
4. to analyze the dynamic behavior of closed-loop systems described by state space models or transfer functions in terms of step and impulse responses and zeros and poles
5. interpret Bode diagrams of 1st and 2nd order systems, and sketch Bode diagrams of systems given via a transfer function
6. design PID controllers, in particular for 1st and 2nd order systems
7. apply the above approaches and methods using Matlab

Education Method:

lectures (17x), lab (4x), colstruction (2x), self-study

Assessment:

written exam (closed-book, no calculator or other electronic devices allowed) + bonus (max. 1) via optional homeworks.

The exam will only be graded if both Simulink/Matlab exercise sessions have been completed successfully in the current academic year.

The successful completion of the Simulink/Matlab exercise sessions will be assessed based on a report that has to be handed in after each exercise session.

IMPORTANT remark for O&S: Only one grade should be registered in Osiris - so please do *not* create separate items for exam, assignment and homeworks.

Judgement:

Written exam (closed-book, no calculator or other electronic devices allowed)
There are optional graded homeworks that can yield a bonus of up to 1 point.

Final grade = min (10, grade for the written exam + bonus ); this also holds for the resit.

Important: The exam will only be graded if both Simulink/Matlab exercise sessions have been completed successfully in the current academic year.

The successful completion of the Simulink/Matlab exercise sessions will be assessed based on a report that has to be handed in after each exercise session.

IMPORTANT remark for O&S: Only one grade should be registered in Osiris - so please do not create separate items for exam, assignment and homeworks.
