Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The goal of the subject is to teach students the basics of the mechatronic system control. The accent is given on the motion control synthesis while the real limitations and parasitic characteristics of motion systems are taking into account.
Course contents:
1. Classification of mechatronic system components and their mathematical description
2. Control of position, velocity, acceleration, force and torque, impedance control - basic control structures and review of HW solutions in this area
3. Control of multiaxis systems, interpolation of motion in several axis.
4. Control of systems with variable parameters (e.g. moment of inertia) and under influence of time variable external disturbances (load torque)
5. VSS control - principle, synthesis for selected systems
6. Systems with real mechanics - flexible members, hystheresis, clearance, resonance effects. Mathematical description, identification of parameters.
7. Feedback control of low damped oscillatory systems (cranes, kinematic chains with flexible members, containers filled with liquid etc.) - additional damping feedback loops, state control, observers ...
8. Feed-forward control of low damped oscillatory systems - online and offline shaping of control signals, motion profile generators
9. Control of wheeled and tracked mobile chassis. Traction control systems - ABS, ASR, ESP etc.
10. Control of flying robots. Quadrocopter, stability control.
11. Control of underwater robots. Submersible motion control.
12. Specific problems of micro and nano mechatronic system control
