Course

Advanced motion control

Part 2 Motion control

This course focusses on motion control of industrial systems with mechanical components, such as servo-systems, drones and wind turbines. The motions of these systems are often effected by vibrations, badly damped eigenmodes and interactions. This complicates motion control design and tuning.

How to master advanced control concepts

In this second part of the course, you learn how to master advanced control concepts. Subjects treated are gain-scheduling, feedforward and self-learning feedforward, decoupling, override, split-range and master-slave control.

The course consists of a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, exercises and experiments. You will work with realistic simulations and an experimental lab-setup. In this setup a control computer measures and controls the motion. The control computer program can be changed by the attendants.

You can subscribe for the entire series, but also opt for one or more separate modules. Please view the tab ‘modules’ below for more information.

Intended for

Engineers who want to improve and extend their knowledge on motion control, and who wish to learn and understand more on the practical issues in implementing, using and optimizing motion control systems.

At the request of the participants this course can be taught in Dutch or English.
