Course “Introduction to digital control”

The automatic control software course “Introduction to digital control” deals with the following subjects:

  • Structure and behaviour of continuous and time discrete control systems, their analogies and differences
  • The characterization of linear transfer elements by their step response and the graphical evaluation of their characteristic values
  • The transformation of differential equations into discrete equations as well as the z – transformation
  • The qualitative evaluation of the control system dynamics based on specific performance criteria (reference/disturbance reaction, overshooting, settling time, …)
  • The design of digital PID controllers by means of simple optimization guidelines
