    OVERVIEW

    Automatic control systems represent the fundamental technology for the construction of machines and systems, in all fields of engineering, capable of operating automatically with precision and reliability, without the direct intervention of human operators.

    The automatic control systems are based on the concept of feedback and its properties. All systems, both natural (biological, social systems, etc.) and artificial (machines, devices, processes, etc.) perform their function on the basis of feedback mechanisms which, if properly managed, make their functioning effective.

    The Automatic Controls course provides the fundamental elements necessary to understand the operation and properties of feedback control systems and the basis for engineering control systems.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The Automatic Controls Course aims to provide students with: the fundamental concepts underlying the regulation and control of dynamic systems, the basic tools for analyzing the behavior of feedback control systems and for designing simple analog regulators.

    At the end of the course, the student will be able to analyze the characteristics of stability, precision, noise rejection and robustness of linear time-invariant feedback systems with single controlled variable (LTI-SISO). It will also be able to synthesize the regulation function (regulator) for the control of simple LTI-SISO systems.

    PREREQUISITES

    The technical tools of the course are based on

    • Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis and Algebra of Complex Numbers
    • Fundamentals of Systems Theory

    Understanding the concepts presented in the course requires at least a vague idea of how the world around the student works. For this purpose, at least an understanding of the basics of the following disciplines is considered useful

    • Elementary physics (mechanics / electromagnetism)
    • Electrical engineering / circuits
    • Other basic engineering disciplines
