Objectives Most control systems do not simply need to meet their requirements, but to do them as well as possible. This KV shows how to solve optimization problems in control engineering using existing analytical and numerical tools. The course is mainly methodological, but the related practical course (PR) allows to understand the close connection between theory and practice. The KV is structured as a systematic introduction to system/problem analysis, analytical- and numerical methods and their use for control applications.
  • Structure and Components of a Control Loop
  • Stabilization – feedforward and feedback control – robust control – rejection *Fundamentals of optimization
  • Formulation and solution of problems from control engineering as optimization problems
  • Controller design using optimization methods
  • Robust formulations

Practical tasks are presented in the KV and covered in detail in the PR.

  • Automotive control
  • Glucose control
  • Control of a 2-DOF-helicopter
