Regulation and Control of Mechatronic Systems

The RRRU is developing regulating and control methods and architectures for specific applications so that mechatronic systems can be endowed with a particular nominal response. As well as positioning and speed control, force and impedance control systems are developed and commissioned on target systems. As part of an end-to-end development process which begins with a mathematical description of the systems that are to be regulated and their computer-aided simulation, regulating and control processes are evaluated using simulation and then implemented on embedded regulating systems by means of automatic generation. The RRRU also researches algorithms for the automatic adaption of controllers to changing external conditions.
