Abstract

The importance of control laboratory courses is widely recognized as a crucial part of control education. This paper addresses the role of interdisciplinarity (meaning the different aspects of control) in laboratory courses for undergraduate students. Explanations and ideas are given based on the example of the inverted pendulum. Different aspects of control are studied throughout this paper : it is first stressed that constraints carried by engineering and industrial environment may have a significant impact when modelling a system. Then, the control structures used in this course are presented. After running the simulation of the system, qualitative results are described. Finally, some remarks are given to conclude the paper.
