Seminar Selected Topic in Automatic Control (etit-810)

Ausgewählte Kapitel der Regelungstechnik /Selected Topics in Automatic Control
S; 2 SWS; ECTS-Points: 4
Lecturer: Dr. Alexander Schaum, Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Thomas Meurer


This seminar addresses different topics in automatic control. For the current semester the following topics will be addressed:

  • Lyapunov-based control design techniques. 

The seminar consists of a lecture part (about 6 weeks) followed by a take-home exercise, which has to be prepared individually and has to include a presentation of the obtained results.

Note: Preliminary knowledge on nonlinear control systems is helpful but not obligatory.


See UnivIS (lecture ID 080132), the preparatory meeting will take place at the first lecture


Will be consecutively provided during the lecture period.
