Theoretical and methodological lessons will be delivered together with example developments by face-to-face instruction in the classroom. Computer laboratory activities are aimed at developing the student’s skill through proper training. Each student is supposed to practice individually with the aid of laboratory work stations. The primary purpose of the laboratory exercises is to apply the methodologies presented in class, through the use of MatLab and Simulink. During the last week of the course, an exam simulation in the laboratory will be offered.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta;
Written exam in computer laboratory lasting 3 hours divided into three parts. Part I. 2 multiple choice problems for each 4 possible answers are shown, only one of which is correct (maximum score: 6/30). Exact answer: 3 points, wrong answer: -1 point, missing answer: 0 points. Comments on the solution must be provided too: in the absence of any comments a null score is given even in the presence of the correct answer. The goal of this first part of the exam is to verify the understanding of the fundamental theoretical topics of digital control systems. Part II. 1 “open” question on conceptual topics (maximum score: 10/30). The goal of this part of the exam is to verify the student ability to properly express and elaborate either theoretical issues or conceptual problems. Part III. 1 digital control design problem (maximum score: 17/30). The goal of this part of the exam is to verify the student skinless in designing a digital control system. A well motivated detailed report on the employed design procedure is required. The final grade is the sum of the scores achieved in the three parts. Detailed instructions and rules will be presented during the course.
