Syllabus
Target skills and knowledge: To be able to analyze the dynamics of a continuous time dynamic system both in the time domain and in the frequency domain, and to evaluate its performances (type, stead-state error, step response parameters ....)
To be able to synthesize a control device for applying it to a given plant.
To be able to test with Matlab the system performances before and after the controller synthesis.
Examination methods: Written test (estimated 2.5 hours) consisting of some numerical exercises (3 or 4) and a theoretical question regarding the program taught during the classes.
Oral test - in addition to the written one and only if the written test is positive (18/30) - is possible. The date must be agreed with the Instructor.
Assessment criteria: The written test aims at evaluating the skills acquired by the students in:
- analysing the dynamics of a linear continuous-time I/O model, by solving linear, constant coefficients differential equations, or by using Laplace transforms and inverse transforms;
- plotting Bode and Nyquist plots of frequency responses;
- designing a proper stabilizing controller that allows to meet certain specifications, by resorting to frequency domain techniques;
- applying the aforementioned skills to simple physical systems.
Course unit contents: The study of the dynamics of a continuous time dynamic system both in the time domain and in the frequency domain, and the evaluation of its performances (type, stead-state error, step response parameters ....).
Frequency based techniques to synthesze a control device that leads a given system to exhibit the desired performances.
Controller design for a family of physical systems of practical interest.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: About 2/3 of the class is of theoretical flavor and is devoted to describe in detail the analysis, performances and control design for continuous-time linear I/O models. The remaining 1/3 is devoted to exercises, Matlab and Simulink simulations, discussion of practical examples.
The student is supposed to regularly attend the classes and to test his/her own comprehension by developing the tests and exercises that are weekly assigned.
Additional notes about suggested reading: The recommended text books are listed below. Furthermore, additional teaching will be provided by the instructor.
