Problem based project organised work in groups. During the project period you should be able to plan and structure the project work, work in groups and solve conflicts, use consensus versus fight/voting and see differences among group members as a strength.
You should also work with the structure of a project report and prepare a problem formulation, set up project limitation and time schedule. The project takes its base in a hydraulically actuated mechanical system, which is to be controlled as a feed-back system. Models of both the mechanical structure and the actuation system are made and system identification methods should be used for critical parts where no component/system information is available. The models or critical parts hereof should be experimentally verified to show the validity of the models.
Based on the developed models one or more selected non-linear control methods should be used to develop a control algorithm for the system, which should be implemented and verified experimentally and the results should be compared to what may be obtained with standard linear controllers.
Since it is a 10 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 300 hours for the student
