Basic knowledge of the control of linear continuous-time and/or discrete-time systems or of robust control

Skills to be acquired in this module

The students identify fundamentals of robust control and state estimation as well as problem-specific solution techniques and their corresponding software implementation.
Professional competences

The students

  • identify fundamentals of robust control and state estimation
  • characterize problem-specific solution techniques for different classes of uncertainty
  • are aware of reliable software implementations.

Methological competences
The students

  • analyze problems of robust control and state estimation for dynamic systems
  • analyze fundamental solution techniques on a theoretical basis
  • transfer as well as generalize those independently to new fields of applications.

Social competences
The students
