Language of instruction German

Students are able to understand control tasks and analyse control loops based on the basic characteristics of dynamic systems. They are familiar with the basic requirements and characteristics of linear feedback control.
They are able to design linear controllers, especially PID controllers, understand their meaning and evaluate computer-aided control systems. They know about systems with PT2 behaviour and are able to use the corresponding characteristics for the controller design. They are able to sketch, analyse and understand Bode diagrams. The students are familiar with the concept of root loci, are able to draw and analyse root loci for simple systems.
They understand the necessary mathematical methods and their computer assisted application in Matlab/Simulink.

Introduction to control engineering:
Properties of LTI systems with PT2 behaviour
Properties and requirements for control loops
PID controller, usage and design
Practical tuning rules for PID-controllers
Controller design using PT2 systems
Bode plots
Root locus
Nyquist criterion
Speed and position control task (lab exercise)
