Modelling and Control of Mechatronic Systems


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • Have knowledge about analytic modeling of physical systems.
  • Have knowledge about control of dynamic systems and tools for analysis of a controlled system.
  • Have knowledge about industrial and proportional–integral–derivative controllers.
  • Have knowledge about performances of a controlled system such as transient response, steady-state accuracy, stability and robustness.
  • Have knowledge about signal processing and discrete time control.
  • Have knowledge about control of robots, robot control schemes and architectures.


  • Be able to formulate models and apply methodologies to address and solve problems related to the dynamics of electro-mechanical systems.
  • Be able to simulate the dynamic model of a system and test control methods in simulation.
  • Be able to implement a control system and evaluate the system performances of a physical dynamic system.
  • Be able to generalize the knowledge to the design of multi-disciplinary controlled systems.


  • Be able to rationalize and scientifically justify the use of a specific model for a given problem.
  • Be able to communicate with experts about themes related to vibrations, system dynamics and control.
  • Be able to identify problems in controlled systems and provide solutions to improve the performances of a controlled system.
  • Be able to implement new control solutions for a given control problem.
