The learning objectives of the Project of M6 Systems & Control are that students:
  • Understand the dynamic behaviour of physical systems
  • Are able to model, analyse, and simulate the dynamic behaviour of a given robotic system (model Segway)
  • Get experienced designing feed-back control of linear/linearized dynamic systems
  • Learn to work in a scientific way, e.g. by comparing calculations, simulations and measurements
  • Develop an academic attitude towards systematically gaining insights and debugging systems
The Project of Module 6 Systems & Control focuses on the analysis, modelling, simulation, and control of dynamic systems. The topics covered by the Project are:
  • Use of port-based modelling and bond graph representation of dynamic systems in a specific dynamic system
  • Numerical simulations methods and numerical solution verification of the models
  • Energy-based analysis of multi-ports
  • Using a software (20sim) simulation package (Controllab Products B.V. The Netherlands)
  • Representation and analysis of dynamic systems in the s-domain: root locus
  • Analysis of dynamic systems in frequency domain: Bode plots, Nyquist plots
  • Synthesis of feed-forward and state-feedback: PID controller, lead and lag networks
  • Feed-back control to reduce the sensitivity of a dynamic system for disturbances and parameter variations
  • Stability and sensitivity analysis
This grade is made up of 2 reports: Motor Report (weight 30%) and Final Report (weight 70%), which will together be weighted to one grade. This combined grade needs to be 5.5 or higher. If not, there may be possibilities for a rewrite of one or the other report.
