Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

A basic control course with elementary state space techniques is a prerequisite. A second control course, e.g. the course ERE180 Multivariable Control is recommended but not mandatory.

Aim

The objective of this course is to introduce fundamental techniques to solve industrial control problems, for which linear models are insufficient or difficult to obtain from physical data. The purpose of the course is also to introduce modern software tools to support the analysis and synthesis of such control systems.

Content

- Analysis of nonlinear systems:
Common nonlinearities. Phase plane analysis. Stationary points and limit cycles. Stability. Lyapunov's method. Describing function.
- Design of nonlinear control systems:
Gain scheduling. Synthesis using stability theory. Model predictive control. Exact linearization. Optimal control. Pontryagin's maximum principle. Bang-bang control. Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman's equation.
- Adaptive control:
Principles for adaptive control. Model reference adaptive systems. Separation of identification and control. Self-tuning regulators.
- Hand-in problem and laboratory sessions:
1. Describing functions and limit cycles.
2. Nonlinear control synthesis.
3. Adaptive control.

Organisation

Lectures and probelm sessions.
Hand-in assignment and laboratory sessions (mandatory).

Literature

T. Glad, L. Ljung: Reglerteori. Studentlitteratur. In Swedish. (The book is also available in English from a foreign publisher).
Supplementary material.

Examination

Written exam. Course credit requires that assignments and laboratory sessions have been passed.
