The course starts with examples on modeling of physical systems. Thereafter the description of linear time-invariant systems using transfer functions and state space models is introduced. Analysis and synthesis of linear feedback systems follow thereafter. At the end the course addresses questions regarding the design of control systems, such as control system architectures and mechanisms that counteract integration windup. The course is divided into three parts: 1. Theory, 5.0 ECTS; 2. Laboratory, 2.0 ECTS; 3. Seminar, 0.5 ECTS.
For admission at least two years full-time university studies are required, including 30 ECTS in Mathematics containing Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, as well as Calculus, and Introductory programming in C and Matlab, 7,5 ETCS, or equivalent. Proficiency in English equivalent to Swedish upper Secondary course English A/5. Where the language of instruction is Swedish, applicants must prove proficiency in Swedish to the level required for basic eligibility for higher studies.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
