Exam by appointment

Course Language:


Expected prior knowledge:

Undergraduate curriculum, classical feedback control, signal analysis. experience with MATLAB could be useful but is not required.

Course Contents:

The goal of this project is to refresh and apply theoretical knowledge gained in previous classical control courses and to get the ability to tune mechanical servo systems. The concepts and tools to be used include modelling mechanical systems, measurement of the frequency responses and controller design in the time and frequency domain.

Study Goals:

The designed controllers have to be implemented on a real experimental servo-system and their performances have to be analysed.

Education Method:

Project combined with theoretical lectures to support the students during the exercises. Part of the lectures, including a computer session, will be taught during the Introduction Week for new MSc students (September 2016). Presence of all students during this week is mandatory to be able to follow this project.


The results of the exercises and experiments must be summarized in a report.
A written test may be part of the assessment.
