Control Systems Design
In the area of our core expertise ‒ control system design ‒ we offer three consecutive seminars. The basic seminar (control engineering) refreshes existing knowledge regarding analysis, controller selection, design and refers to structures of control cycles. The advanced seminar (State-Space), focuses on the representation and design of state controllers and observers. The expert seminar (Discrete Time Systems) demonstrates how components from the basic and state-space seminars are implemented and which pitfalls can be expected.
Basic Seminar: Control System Design
During exercises and presentations, the participant is introduced to the world of control engineering such as control loop, reference variable and loop amplification. Based on the description and analysis of the controlled system, a continuous example is used as the basis for exercises to determine which controllers have to be designed in order to meet requirements for the speed or robustness of the control system. In addition to single-loop control loops, structural extensions such as disturbance feedforward and cascaded control are also dealt with. The training conveys basic concepts from the field of control engineering so that the participant can interpret requirements for a control loop and work out possible solution approaches by himself or in a common discussion.
- System description and -analysis
- Demands for control systems
- Controller types and controller design
- Controller structures (single loop, cascaded controllers, feedforward control, disturbance feedforward)
Advanced Seminar: State-Space Systems
State-space representation is a system description that provides deeper insights into system analysis and controller design. In this training module, the participants will familiarize themselves with state-space representation through presentations and exercises to gain deeper system understanding. Terms like controllability and observability will be clarified to deduce whether the draft of a state regulator or state observer is realizable. In addition, it will be explained how the state regulator and state observer are to be interpreted. The topic is mathematically challenging.
- System description and representation in state-space
- Operating principle and layout of state controllers according to Riccati and pole placement
- Operating principle and layout of state observers
Advanced Seminar: Discrete Time Systems
In this advanced training, continuously designed controllers will be transferred into a system with fixed sample times. The participants will familiarize themeselves with the terminology of discrete time systems and will be able to program a controller as a difference equation. An additional focus is put on the transfer of state-space systems (state controllers and state observers) in order to subsequently implement a state controller. The imparted knowledge aims to enable the participants to implement pertaining functions, not only model-based but also to be able to translate them into an excelled language such as “C/C++”.
