Ph.D. Course: Multivariable feedback control using frequency-domain
Norwegian University of Science Technology.
Taught last time: Spring of 1999
The course has been given every year since 1989 (except
in 1995 and 1998), but it is now discontinued - it is
replaced by a new 4th year (advanced undergraduate) course
by Professor Morten Hovd given the first time in the
spring term 2001.
Level: Introductory graduate (Ph.D.)
Grading: The project counts 20% and the final exam 80%
This is a fairly extensive course. It requires that the students
have some background in multivariable control and in state-space
system theory (some students do not have this background, but they
must then expect to spend up to 20 hours per week on the course).
