01OASIU Control system design: from concepts to practice (didattica di eccellenza) 

Dottorato di ricerca in Ingegneria Informatica E Dei Sistemi  Torino 





Obiettivi dell'insegnamento
Prof. Zhiqiang Gao  Cleveland State University
Finalitą del corso: A training course in control, designed for graduate students and practicing engineers who seek understanding of fundamental concepts of control theory and begin to develop their problem solving skills. Unlike many mathematically oriented control courses and textbooks, this course emphasizes how the abstract concepts of control theory and advanced design tools are used pragmatically in engineering practice. From problem formulation to issues in hardware implementation, students witness control system design in this course through a slew of real world control problems. Above all, this course is designed to entice students to think, to ask question existing theory, and to understand the essence of control engineering. 
Programma
What do we need to know?  a review of basic control concepts and tools
What do we want?  performance evaluation of industrial control system What makes it so easy/hard?  bridging the theorypractice gap: problem solving strategy and process in the real world How much do we need to know about a physical process before we can design a controller for it? ' the premise of modern control theory and its consequence Robust control: how much uncertainties can a control system tolerate? Industry control: how much uncertainties are out there? Why feedback control? ' how we strive for consistent performance in a system made of inconsistent parts? Why not feedback control? ' the inherent limitation of feedback: stability and latency Why feedforward? ' the advantage of anticipation Active vs. passive disturbance rejection: the new vs. old design paradigm Estimating and mitigating disturbances The rejection of total disturbance, including internal dynamics and external forces ADRC (Active Disturbance Rejection Control): concept, algorithm, and applications The future of control theory and practice beyond modern control Il corso si terrą da lun 12 luglio a ven 16 luglio presso l' Aula C dalle 14:30 alle 16:30
