"Einführung in die Regelungstechnik" (ERT) and "Konzepte der Regelungstechnik" (KRT) or equivalent lectures


All lectures will take place in presence during the semester (SS2022). The lectures will take place in V 27.01, PWR 27 on Wednesdays (09:45 - 11:15), and in V 55.21, PWR 55 on Thursdays (09:45 - 11:15). A backup of old video lectures will be made available on ILIAS.

First Lecture: 13 April, 2022, Wednesday (V 27.01, PWR 27)


The course covers modern analysis and controller design techniques for nonlinear systems including Lyapunov stability, input-to-state stability, control Lyapunov functions, backstepping, sliding-mode control, input-output stability, dissipativity, passivity, and passivity based controller design.


The lecture material is available on the ILIAS-page of the course.
