Welcome to the Chair of Automatic Control / Willkommen am Lehrstuhl für Regelungstechnik


We work on state-of-the art techniques for modeling, analysis and control of complex dynamic systems and develop novel solution approaches for industrial control tasks. Our main research areas comprise control and observer design for nonlinear as well as distributed-parameter systems governed by partial differential equations. We apply and evaluate the developed techniques for smart and intelligent structures such as adaptive and morphing flexible structures with piezoelectric actuation, reheating, thermal, chemical, and biological processes, active flow control, cooperative interacting systems, and production processes.

Our teaching activities cover different aspects of automatic control, state estimation, mathematical modeling and analysis. Starting with the foundations for linear systems during the Bachelor studies our focus is on nonlinear control, optimal control and distributed parameter systems in our Master courses.  This is accompanied by courses on the modeling of physical processes and applied nonlinear dynamics. Theoretical aspects are applied and evaluated by our students in different laboratories.
