TEK5170 – Optimal and predictive control
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
Changes in the course due to coronavirus
Autumn 2020 we plan for teaching and examinations to be conducted as described in the course description and on semester pages. However, changes may occur due to the corona situation. You will receive notifications about any changes at the semester page and/or in Canvas.
Spring 2020: Teaching and examinations was digitilized. See changes and common guidelines for exams at the MN faculty spring 2020.
The course deals with the formulation of optimal control problems for linear and nonlinear systems, as well as analysis and synthesis of optimal controllers. We will also go through the model-predictive control framework and its applications.
After completing the course, you will be able to:
- solve linear quadratic regulator problems
- formulate dynamical optimization problems subject to constraints
- use numerical optimization and model predictive toolboxes
- apply optimal and predictive control techniques to process control and autonomous robots
Admission to the course
Students admitted at UiO must apply for courses in Studentweb. Students enrolled in other Master's Degree Programmes can, on application, be admitted to the course if this is cleared by their own study programme.
Nordic citizens and applicants residing in the Nordic countries may apply to take this course as a single course student.
If you are not already enrolled as a student at UiO, please see our information about admission requirements and procedures for international applicants
Recommended previous knowledge
Basic knowledge about control systems.
- 10 credits overlap with UNIK4570 – Robust multivariable control (continued).
- 10 credits overlap with TEK9170 – Optimal and predictive control (discontinued).
- 10 credits overlap with TEK4060 – Robust multivariable control (continued).
Total number of hours: 40 (mostly lectures, with a few possibly devoted to labs). Assignments: 3 compulsory assignments, of which 2 must be approved before the exam, valid for one year after approval. Attendance at the first lecture is encouraged but not mandatory.
A final, oral exam will count for 100 % of the final grade. In case of many students, a written exam may be held instead.
The course has mandatory assignments that must be approved in order to take the final exam.
Grades are awarded on a scale from A to F, where A is the best grade and F is a fail. Read more about the grading system.
