Course Catalog 2011-2012
ASE-1257 Introduction to Control , 4 cr
The course is available only for the MSc program of Machine Automation (MA). Its contact teaching hours are included in those of ASE-1256. MA students are also welcome to ASE-1256 but can get the credit points from only one of the courses ASE-1257, ASE-1256, ASE-1250. The material may vary from year to year. Additional weekly exercise hour available for repetition of old and new knowledge.
Extra points are available from a fifth PC session.

A LAB work of an hour, four PC sessions of 2 hours each, examination.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
After the course the student knows the potential and limitations of decision & control both within and beyond actual control engineering ; knows typical control structures as well as connections and the roles nature of the control system components; can derive simple dynamical models, simplify models and perform model conversations; masters typical system terms and concepts including performance specifications; is able to describe and analyze control systems and other dynamical systems; understands , and can analyze and even limitedly design stability, damping, accuracy and speed of systems with standard methods; is able to analyze potential stability and performance risks due to uncertainty and guard against them ; can exploit use Matlab, Simulink, Control System Toolbox and Symbolic Toolbox or another similar enough software in the tasks mentioned is able to communicate on these things with students and engineers educated elsewhere.

|Implementation of Autumn 2011. All the sessions of the course are included in those of ASE-1256. All the participants of ASE-1257 are therefore kindly asked to register into ASE-1257 for credit point administration as well as into ASE-1256 for document downloading and most convenient management of the compulsory sessions (PC sessions, LAB session etc.)!|
