Control Engineering

Content and learning objectives:

  • Introduction
  • Open-loop and closed-loop control
  • The linear control loop
  • Synthesis (design) of controls
  • Cascade control and disturbance feed-forward control
  • Modeling of dynamic systems in state space
  • State-space control

An introduction into the function-oriented design and to structuring methods for the systematic, holistic design of mechatronic systems is given. The lecture will deal with the modelling and derivations of theoretical methods for the analysis and synthesis of control systems in mechatronics. These methods will be detailed according to actual examples from machine design. The lecture imparts the fundamentals for an integration of information-processing components into dynamical systems in mechanical engineering.
