Digital control design

Individual course

The teaching approach on this course is practical control design and implementation for different applications. The first half of the course introduces design of advanced control methods for different application. The application topics may change yearly.

In the second half of the course, every student will design, program and test a controller using an industrial controller platform and laboratory equipment.

Course contents

The following topics are included:

  • Plant modelling
  • Different state-space and transfer functions algorithms for SISO and MIMO systems
  • Digital controller synthesis
  • System simulation
  • Controller programming and testing

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of the course, students are able to design and implement a digital control system for industrial application independently.

The necessary skills are dynamic plant modeling, system design, control synthesis, system simulation and digital controller implementation in an industrial control platform. These skills are important when designing modern automation systems or any practical application where control have an important role.

Completion methods

Weekly online lectures and exercises. Lecture recordings can be found on the learning platform.
