    Laboratories: Frequency analysis, Interactive identification, Identification for control
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to define basic concepts for systems with multiple inputs and outputs
    be able to translate between different multivariable system descriptions, in particular time series models, transient responses, transfer function matrices, and state-space descriptions
    be able to derive dynamical mathematical models describing relations between inputs and outputs, including disturbance models
    understand the role of the experimental conditions for the accuracy and quality of the resulting mathematical model
    be able to approximate (reduce) multivariable mathemical models according to a given approximation accuracy
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to formulate control-oriented models of multivariable systems in the form of state-space models, time series models, transient responses, and transfer function
