This one day course gives an introduction to control analysis and design using Modelica and Dymola. The course reviews the main concepts from classical control theory such as feedback, feedforward, PID, estimation and state feedback.

The workshops aim at applying the theory on examples from different physical domains, using the open source libraries Modelica Standard Library and Modelica Linear Systems 2.

After the course, you should be able to design and simulate suitable control strategies for physical systems represented by a Modelica model.

The course covers the following topics:

Control principles and system representation

  • Control requirements
  • System representation
  • Performance assessment
  • Linearization
  • Linear Analysis
  • Model order reduction

 Decentralized Control

  • PID control
  • Feedforward
  • Standard control structures

 Centralized and optimal control

  • Observability and Controllability
  • Linear quadratic control
  • State estimation
  • Linear quadratic Gaussian control
  • Disturbance modeling.

Who should attend?

The course is for users who wants a comprehensive introduction to controls modeling using the Modelica Standard Library. Previous knowledge about Dymola corresponding to Dymola Introduction Course, Part I is assumed.
