Control systems


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts) :
(1) the modelling, the responses and the control of linear systems;
(2) the synthesis and the analysis of sequential logic systems.
The student will be able to:
- transform a linear differential equation into a transfer function (and vice-versa),
plot the time and frequency responses of linear systems (dominant poles),
recognize a first- or second-order system, determine the asymptotic stability (Routh
criterion or root locus), state and use the Nyquist stability criterion, find the gain
and phase margins, compute the settling time and the steady-state error, design a
PID controller (Ziegler & Nichols method), compute a P controller for a given
phase margin, state the principle of phase-lead and phase-lag controllers
- Analyse and synthesize complex sequential logic systems, analyse
logic sequential systems, use Petri nets for specifying parallelism, synchronisation,
and shared resources, analyse the Petri nets properties (reachability, liveness,
Boundedness) with the marking graph.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
