EL2425 Automatic Control, Project Course, Smaller Course 7.5 credits
The overall purpose of the course is to give the student practical knowledge and experience of project work in design and implementation of control systems. The students get to consolidate their previously acquired knowledge in control theory by solving a problem on a laboratory system. The student also gets experience in project work and technical communication.

Content and learning outcomes
The majority of the work is project work in a small group of 2-4 students, dealing with:
- project planning
- control design
- modeling and simulation
- implementation of real-time control systems
- validation and test
- communication, documentation and demonstration
There might also be a number of compulsory workshops/tutorials, for example on the development tools that are used in the course.
Intended learning outcomes
The overall purpose of the course is to give the student practical knowledge and experience of project work in design and implementation of control systems. The students get to consolidate their previously aquired knowledge in control theory by solving a problem on a laboratory system. The student also gets experience in project work and technical communication.
After the course the student should have the ability to:
- work effectively in a smaller project group
- systematically design, implement, test and demonstrate a prototype control system that meets given specifications
- use adequate engineering tools and methods and aquire new knowledge and skill when needed
- document and communicate results in written and oral presentations
Literature and preparations
Automatic Control, Basic Course, (EL1000, EL1110, E1120, Reglerteknik allmän kurs) and passed grade in at least one of EL2450, EL2520, EL2620, EL2700, EL2805
Knowledge and skills in the programming language Python and knowledge in robotics corresponding to DD2410 Introduction to Robotics 7.5 credits.
No specific list is given. The students are expected to find the necessary information themselves. Some background material, manuals and other documentation will be available, depending on the nature of the project task.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PRO1 - Project, 7.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
PRO1 . project, 7.5 credits, grade scale P/ F
Other requirements for final grade
The fulfilment of the course goals are examined by
- weekly project meetings
- documented project plan
- final presentation and demonstration
- final report and documentation
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
