Autumn Semester (Fachpraktikum I / Laboratory I 227-0095)

The experiments offered in the autumn semester treat various basic control methodologies such as

  • Sequential control and finite state machines
  • Fuzzy control
  • PID control

They demonstrate fundamental issues in control and thus complement the contents of courses Signal and System Theory II and Control Systems (Regelsysteme I).

Spring Semester (Fachpraktikum II / Laboratory II 227-0096)

The experiments offered in the spring semester reinforce the control paradigms studied in the course Control Systems (Regelsysteme I). Students are encouraged to analyze the control problem and validate their results practically.

Topics treated are:

  • Open-loop shaping (PI, PID, Lead-Lag)
  • Optimal control (LQR)
  • Mulitple Input-Multiple Output (MIMO) control
