Non-linear Control and Multi-body Systems

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Be able to carry out kinematic analysis of multi-body systems
  • Be able to model multi-body dynamical systems using selected methods
  • Be able to develop complete system models that include actuators and possible hard non-linearities
  • Be able to analyse systems using linearization-, Lyapunov- and phase plane methods
  • Be able to design non-linear controllers for considered systems in the presence on uncertain and possibly varying system parameters

Skills

  • Be able to establish various types models for non-linear system, including multi-body and actuator models
  • Be able to judge the usefulness of the different analyses and design methods
  • Be able to apply the learned knowledge to analyse and study non-linear dynamical systems
  • Be able to design selected types of non-linear controllers
  • Be able to implement selected types of non-linear controllers

Competences

  • Independently be able to describe and analyse non-linear systems
  • Independently be able to design considered non-linear controllers
  • Independently be able to continue own development within the field of non-linear systems analysis and control

Type of instruction

The programme is based on a combination of academic, problem oriented and interdisciplinary approaches and organised based on the following types of instruction that combine skills and reflection: - lectures - class teaching - project work - workshops - exercises (individually and in groups) - teacher feedback - professional reflection - portfolio work - laboratory Work The form(s) of teaching will be determined and described in connection with the planning of the semester. The description will account for the form(s) of teaching and may be accompanied by an elaboration of the roles of the participants.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 5 ECTS course module, the work load is expected to be 150 hours for the student.
