The goal of this course is to integrate and apply the theoretical knowledge gained in more theoretical oriented courses on Modelling, Identification and Control, which are compulsory within the MSc program "Systems and Control". The concepts and tools to be used include modelling of electro-mechanical systems, filtering and estimation (e.g. Kalman filtering), MiMo linear control design and performance analysis, system identification of open and closed loop systems.|
It is assumed that students already know these concepts or are able to acquire the information from literature. No lectures are given in this course. The course consists of assignments, in which students will gain hand-on experience with the application of control theory to real-world systems. Matlab and Simulink are used as primary software environment for the design and analysis.
Note that although input from many compulsory courses is needed to complete the “Integration Project”, the assignments are set up in such a way that larger parts of this course can already be completed with knowledge from only a subset of the compulsory courses. Hence it is not needed to postpose working on this “Integration Project” until the end of the course year. On the contrary, starting earlier is encouraged as it may result in a more balanced study load.
Students may work in groups of two.
