EL2425 Automatic Control, Project Course, Smaller Course 7.5 credits

Reglerteknik, projektkurs, mindre kurs

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.

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

Course main content

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.

Eligibility

Automatic Control, Basic Course, (EL1000, EL1110, E1120, Reglerteknik allmän kurs) and passed grade in at least one of EL2450, EL2520, EL2620, EL2700, EL2805
