The course suggests a comprehensive discussion of optimal control methods and algorithms developed for synthesis of controllers for linear dynamical systems as well as methods used for assessing stability and robustness of closed loop linear feedback systems to various disturbances and uncertainties in the system description. Two popular design techniques, H-2 and H-infinity are covered in details. Illustrative examples of analysis and synthesis of feedback controllers following both methods are given.
For admission at least two years full-time university studies are required, including 15 ECTS at advanced level in Electronics containing Linear Control Systems, 7.5 ECTS, 7.5 ECTS in Programming, and 22.5 ECTS in Mathematics containing Differential equations, Linear Algebra and Calculus in Multiple Variables, 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.
