Aim of course

The students will acquire the basic mathematical tools for the analysis and the design of digital control systems and will learn to design digital controllers using conventional and state-space methods.

Subject of course

Hardware of a digital control loop, discrete-time signals, difference equations, z-transform, impulse sampling, signal reconstruction, pulse transfer functions, block-diagrams, stability of single-input/single-output systems (SISO-systems) Design of digital controllers using discrete-time equivalents of continuous-time controllers and the root locus method, analytical design (dead beat controller), analysis and design of digital control systems using state space methods, controllability and observability, state-vector feedback, discrete-time observers.
