Automatic control: initiation to system control (AU-CS)

Introduction to fundamental concepts of automatic control, to create command system


Definition – Control law components – Control loop

Discover PID controller

Which systems? – P, PI, PD – Settings

Initiation to LTI systems

Definition – Derivation operator – Transfer function – Stability

Study time and frequency behavior

Transitional and asymptotic behavior – Bode, Nyquist and Black diagrams – Stability margin

Use compensating control

Introduction – Robustness and performances properties – Trap

Regulation of systems

Pure gain – Delayed gain – Pure integrator – First-order systems – Delayed first-order systems – Second-order systems

Implement numerical controllers

Discretization – Anti-saturation – Initialisation

Use internal model control

Principle – Model inversion – Robustness – Settings

Use feedforward

Principle – Different types – Model inversion
