Linear Control

Lecturer(s): Emmanuel BOUTLEUX, Eric BLANCO
Course ⋅ 12 hTC ⋅ 14 hPW ⋅ 4 hStudy ⋅ 2 h


This course aims to identify the common features of any linear control problem: the choice of instrumentation, the expression of the specifications and the choice of the control structure. Analysis and resolution procedures are presented with pole placement (including RST control) and frequential analysis.

  • Problematics
  • From specifications to reference model
  • Regulators implemetation
  • Empirical methods
  • Modelisation, a survey
  • Pole placement design
  • Frequential design

Learning Outcomes

  • To formulate a control problem from its specifications
  • To predict process temporal behaviour from poles position
  • To elaborate a mere control law allowing pole placement ou frequential properties
  • To implement a numerical regulatorf from his continous transfer
