The aim of the lecture is to teach the basics of systems theory and control engineering. We learn how to electrical, mechanical, optical, chemical or thermal processes described in the form of dynamic systems uniformly, analyze the characteristics of these systems, and learn methods for their targeted modulation by sensor-actuator systems (controllers) know.
We'll start with the modeling of dynamic systems, consider the analytic solution of linear time-invariant differential equations introduce the impulse and step response, analyze the step response of some commonly occurring systems, introduce the Laplace transform, learn different methods for the preparation of linear transfer functions to know, discuss stability of the closed loop and learn basic methods for the design of linear controller for single-input single-output (SISO) systems. The course consists of three hours per week lecture and a SWS exercises.
The exam will take place on 24.09.16 at 10:00 - 12:30 in building 101 in rooms 026 and 010/14.
The lecture will be held at the Technical Faculty of the University of Freiburg in Building 101, HS 00-026.
- Wednesdays, 08:15-10:00
- Friday, 08:15-10: 00
The lecture notes are avialable her:
The final score is calculated at 100% of the final exam. The final exam is "closed-book", so there are no auxiliary utensils except pencils and blank paper allowed. It may, however, exactly one sheet of A4 paper be taken with two pages handwritten described as a formulary. The questions are partly multiple choice, as in the micro exams, some issues with text responses, as in the exercise sheets.
Admission to exam
Admission to the final exam will be obtained when the following criteria are met
- Passing the Exercises: Each exercise sheet is assessed by the acquired points in percent. In the ten best of 12 exercise sheets an average of at least 50% of the points must be achieved.
Example: A student has acquired 2 times 90% and 9 times 40% of the points, thus the average of the best nine 51.1%. The exercise is passed by.
- Passing the micro exams: The micro exams are evaluated by the acquired points in percent. In the three best of four micro exams at least 50% of the points must be achieved on average.
There are four exercise groups every Friday 12:00-13:00:
- Group 1: Room 051 HS 03 026, Florian Messerer
- Group 2: Room 051 SR 00 031, Alexander Petrov
- Group 3: Room 051 SR 00 034, Franziska Gerhards
- Group 4: Room 078 SR 00 014, Peter Hofmeier
You can hand in your solution of the current exercise sheet at the Wendnesday lecture (BEFORE the lecture begins) or, if you want to hand it in before, you can through it into the indicated box in the systems and control laboratory (Lehrstuhl für Systemtheorie, Regelungstechnik und Optimierung) in building 102, 1st floor.

You will need MATLAB for the exercises. Details on how to obtain a free MATLAB license and how to install the program can be found here:
For the lecture and exercises you will need only the "Control System Toolbox".
You can find a basic tutorial for Matlab here.
