Present Post-Academic Courses (Organised together with mechatronics academy and high tech institute)

  • Motion Control Tuning, learn the basics of feedforward and feedback tuning, alternating lecture and implementation on a collocated/noncollocated motion system, and demystify Bode, Nyquist, etc. See e.g. this book chapter for a glimpse of the ideas in this course.

  • Advanced Motion Control, extend your loop-shaping knowledge to multivariable systems, including interaction analysis, decoupling, sequential loop-closing, multivariable Nyquist, model-based control (like H-infinity loop-shaping). All of these are applied on a multivariable testbench. See this book chapter for a glimpse of the ideas in this course.

  • Advanced Feedforward Control, learn how to improve the performance of your system! In this course, advanced feedforward control, iterative learning control, and repetitive control are explored, with actual implementation on a desktop printer. See this recent Mikroniek article and an interview for a glimpse of the ideas in this course.
