Aim

The course gives an in-depth treatment of design of linear control systems with limitations. Special attention is given to design trade-offs and fundamental limitations, and how mathematical optimziation can be used as a design tool, both offline and online. The course covers both continuous-time and discrete-time control systems.

Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
Assessment: Written exam (5 hours), three laboratory exercises, one hand-in assignment. In case of less than 5 registered students the retake exams may be given in oral form.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
