Intended learning outcomes

After completing this course students should be able to describe the basic requirements for and limitations of automatic control. Students should also be able to perform analysis and systematic construction of feedback control systems. This means that students will be expected to be able to do the following after completing this course:

  • Define basic concepts in the area of automatic control.
  • Transform mathematical models of linear dynamic systems between time domain input/output form and transfer function form.
  • Analyse models of linear dynamic systems that are given in the forms above with respect to stability, pole placement, rise time and damping.
  • Demonstrate the connections between the system properties of stability, rise time and damping in time and frequency domains.
  • Derive input/output signal relationships in feedback control systems using block diagram calculations.
  • Perform stability analysis of feedback control systems using Bode diagrams.
  • Construct regulators in PID-form and lead-lag form based on given specifications.
  • Perform simple robustness analysis of feedback control systems.
  • Formulate the specifications for a feedback control system for a lab-process, then model, construct and verify that system.

  • Course content

    Dynamic systems. Feedback, PID-control. Differential equations. Transfer functions. Block diagram algebra. Stability. Frequency description. Compensation. Introduction to sensitivity and robustness. Control structures. Implementation. Simulation. Components.

    Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

    The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

    LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
