Stability and Optimisation

Stability and Optimisation
Stability and Optimisation



The experiments are set up with experiment plates in profile frames. The Profi-CASSY is used to drive these technical controlled systems as well as for recording and analysis of measurement values.

Educational objectives

  • Evaluation of various stability criteria
  • Computer-aided optimisation
  • Quality criteria and ruled surface
  • Integral criteria: IAE, ISE, ITAE, ITSE


Investigating stability and optimising controlled systems are two of the most important tasks related to control engineering. The result decides the usability of the controller for the intended purpose.

The equipment set incorporates student experiments which can be carried out in a laboratory safely using safety extra-low voltage. Experiment instructions are contained in a manual in either printed or digital form.

Target Group

A training program made for the advanced training study programs at applied technology universities and technical universities. Knowledge of classic control engineering is a prerequisite.

The following sets are recommended for further learning:
E Digital Controlling
E Fuzzy Controlling


  • Controllability of controlled systems
  • Controller design according to Ziegler/Nichols
  • Controller design according to Chien/Hrones/Reswick
  • Controller design using the optimal amount method.
  • Optimisation with use of evolution strategies
  • Numerical optimisation of controllers
  • Optimisation on the basis of control areas
  • Optimisation to limit overshoot
  • Optimisation for speed and low overshoot
