Control Systems and instrumentation
2012-2013 - ELE3331 - 10 ECTS

Expected learning outcomes

 The student will be learning dimensioning of control systems and compensation methods. The student will be given an overwiev of modern methods for timedomain models, multivariable control and estimation techniques.

This subject covers general methods of process instrumentation with emphasis on electronic solution and systems for information transfer

Topic(s)

• Seriel compensation

• Cascade control
• Pre controlling
• State backward controlling
• None minimum phace systems
• Time domain models
• Multi variable controlling
• Unlinearity in control systems
• Digital control systems
• Simulation in MatLab and LabView

• Measuring standards
• Uncertainty, calibration, regression analyses, statically process control
• Fundamental concepts and definition within subjects as accuracy, conformity, linearity, resolution, repeatability
• Detection of resistance, capacitance, pressure, position, and velocity
• Methods and standards for information transfer
• Technical security and documentation of instrumental systems
