- V* and disturbance decoupling
- Zeros, Zero dynamics and system inversion
- Tracking and non-interacting control
- Input-output behavior
- Output regulation, Internal model principle
- Nonlinear systems
Intended learning outcomes
After having completed the course the student shall be able to:
- Interpret and explain basic properties of linear systems from a geometric perspective.
- Apply different algorithms to solve control problems such as DDP, non-interacting control, tracking and outputregulation.
- Solve some basic control problems for nonlinear systems that do not have a controllable linearized system.
In addition, for the highest grade the student shall be able to:
- Solve simple but realistic control problems that require synthesis of different design algorithms.
Literature and preparations
English B / English 6
150 university credits (hp) including 28 hp in Mathematics, 6 hp in Mathematical Statistics and 6 hp in Control Theory. Documented proficiency in English corresponding to English B.
More precisely for KTH students:
Passed courses in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, mathematical statistics, numerical analysis, control theory. A passed course in mathematical systems theory (SF2832) is an advantage.
Completed course SF2832 Mathematical systems theory or equivalent.
Geometric Control Theory, lecture notes by Hu and Lindquist.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- HEM2 - Home assignments, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN2 - Written exam, 6.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, 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.
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.
