Genomsnitt: 3.82

- There is always room for improvments. So pherhaps a bit more preparation work needs to be done. One thing that I think could improve the course even more is to add even more simulations and other things that visualise the different aspects in this course. » (Good)
- lab was not that good, did not work as expected and supposed.» (Good)
- I think this is a good course» (Excellent)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Teacher»
- The assigment and experiment.»
- Torsten!»
- offer twice a year»
- the teacher and the TA»
- Torsten!! Wonderful teacher!»
- The different lectures that has simulations and simulation results and other stuff that visualises the content of the course in a good pedagogical way. I think it is very good to use different types of tools to explain the material in the course. »
- Laboration (robot arm). But more time is needed, at least two hours so we don"t have to rush through the excercises. This will lead to further understanding of LQ-control and Kalman filtering. The Lab-PM needs to be looked through, there are errors and uncertainties»
- Lab.»
- Exercises»
- contents»

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Lab preparations»
- Slides, should have more information just in case you cannot attend a lecture.»
- More hours of excercises.»
- The labinstructions should be much more informative (at lab) and offer more guidence for students how aren"t used to work in Simulink (regarding the task before the lab).»
- none»
- nothing»
- The exercises in the book are very boring and hard to follow, since they frequently refer to older problems when defining the new, and they also refer to examples in the book all the time which makes them very fragmented. It can be hard and boring to do problems when you have to do old problems first and verify those results. Also the problems in the book put lots of emphasis on hard calculations that takes forever to do by hand. More emphasis could be put on recommending to use a more advanced calculator and those that are normally allowed in chalmers course. Since you can bring a graph-drawing calculator with matrix handling capabilities to this exam, I think the teacher should recommend people to aquire one of those. It would have saved me tons of effort to use it when I did exercises.»
- Pherhaps prepare a bit more before the lectures but it is not a big issue.»
- Nothing in particular.»
- The slides during the lectures should be changed and should be more detailled»
- some more lab work»

19. Which assignment/lab exercise did you hand in?

34 svarande

Robot arm»24 70%
Double tank process»10 29%

Genomsnitt: 1.29

- neither» (?)
- The laboratory and the assignment. The assignment should be split to two or three parts. The PM:s should be rewritten and the equipment and the model should be tuned.» (Robot arm)
- It could be diveded to two labs maybe so we get enough time to really understand what we are doing and get enough time to do all the exercises» (Robot arm)
- Good lab. » (Robot arm)
- not that good, did not show the strength of a LQG controller as it should have.» (Robot arm)
- i will hand it.» (Double tank process)

20. Did the assignment and laboratory exercises help your understanding of the course?

- Slightly but it was very difficult!»
- Yes, since I didn"t pay much attention to the lectures/exercises, this was where I learned most from.»
- To some extend»
- Yes.»
- Yes»
- Not very much, it was to difficult. »
- Yes it was good for understanding»
- rather well»
- yes»
- yes»
- yes, definitely»
- Yes! But almost no-one did get the LQG with integral action to work satisfactory. I think the teachers should know more about the lab so they can help and fix so that it works. Now it seemed like a lot of work to end up with something that was worthless.»
- The problem was that most of us took the course in "Applied signal processing" and that course kind of stole a LOT of time from this course which resulted in that we could not study very much on this course and especially not on the lab. There needs to be some sort of lecture with teachers where you can ask questions about the lab because the preparation work to the lab was quite difficult. »
- it could be more detailed.»
- Yes, but more time for this is so totally needed. The laboration was rushed through. At least 2 hours more is needed!»
- Yes.»
- Yes, it wad easier to understand the theory after laboration»
- the assignment was not very helpfull to understand the course, but the exercises were very helpfull.»
- to some extent»
- More or less but the assignment/lab exercise weren"t clear.»
- Yes. But laboratory exercise takes too long to do, one has to rush through it to make it in time.»

21. Additional comments

- Good job! Merry X-mas»
- none»
- The teacher was one of the best teachers i had have ever.»
- A good and very interesting course! Something that I missed in the course is a comparing of the different regulators (compare performance robustness etc..) Wich one is the best and when should I use which regulator?»
- The course was good!»
