Syllabus
Prerequisites: Automatic control, Signals and systems, Linear algebra, Calculus. In particular, the following arguments that will be used are considered as material that the student is supposed to know: Continuous-time signals and systems. Step response. Root locus. Bode plots. Nyquist plot. Crossover frequency and phase margin. Controller design in continuous time.
Target skills and knowledge: At the end of the course the student will have developed an advanced knowledge on the following aspects of Systems Engineering:
1. Discrete-time Signals and Systems with emphasis on sampling of continuous-time signals, stability, and connections with the continuous-time setting.
2. Design of digital control systems both in the input/output settings.
Examination methods: Class participation, midterm and final written exams.
Assessment criteria: 1. Ability of solving problems on analysis and synthesis of digital control systems with attention to stability and to other important engineering aspects of the discipline.
2. Ability of presenting the proposed solutions clearly and with precision and of justifying each statement with sound arguments.
3. Ability of rigorously proving the fundamentals results of the discipline.
Course unit contents: Introduction to digital control systems. Continuous-time systems and sampling. Z-transform. State-space and frequency approach. Quantization. choice of the sampling frequency. Delays due to computation. Stability. Step response. Frequency response. Robustness. Control specs and choice of the controller. Discrete approximation of a analog controller. PID. Direct synthesis.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: "Blackborad" teaching.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes and reading material will be available in the course site.
