Course overview

The performance of controlled mechanical servosystems in an industrial setting is generally achieved by using PID controllers. In systems that suffer from dynamics and vibrations it is often useful to use additional filters, like notch-filters. The application of frequency domain techniques for analyzing requirements, describing controllers and carrying out experiments to find the optimal settings is very useful and will be treated during this course.

Starting with the time domain, the complete basis of control is repeated, placed in a modern framework, validated experimentally and applied to mechanical servo systems. During the course all aspects of 'motion control' are covered, including the use of feedforward steering.

Read the interview with lecturers Tom Oomen & Gert Witvoet:
"After completing the Motion Control Tuning training, you can achieve optimal motion control performance in minutes."

After completion of the course you understand time and frequency techniques that are used in control and you are able to analyse industrial servo systems and determine proper settings for the controller.

Next to tuning of the controller, you will be able to judge what the maximum performance is and which aspect is the limiting factor. Also you will gain practical experience with implementation and analysis instrumentation.

vIntended for
