- It would be nice if the lectures covered topics not presented in the book, or explained harder things in more detail, not just replicated what already is in the book in terms of examples etc.» (Some extent)

- The nonlinear part of the Glad and Ljung book is actually good. The complement about adaptive control was sometimes hard to understand.» (Large extent)

- It seemed like the TA was sometimes not prepared for the exercise sessions.» (Rather good)
- Mitra Pourabdollah has been very helpful. Many thanks» (Very good)
- It"s great with the consulting hours. My opinion is that the problem sessions should be more education on the board. With more "just showing" how to solve the problems.» (Very good)

- Only criticsm is that the lecture seems to cover a lot of unrelated topics. It was a little bit from everything, but nothing really in detail.» (Good)
- By taking this course a lot of things from other control courses becomes clear.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- open teaching atmosphere where good interaction between students and the teacher is found.»
- The hand in and the lab, but pleas make an update to the lab files. Uses some old matlab version.»
- The overall structure was good. The handouts were very useful, too.»
- The examiner/lecturer Torsten Wik.»
- the exercise classes»
- The computer lab.(See "definitely be changed", marked: [****])»

15. An experimental lab will be introduced next year. Which part or what parts of the course would you particularly appreciate being covered by the lab:

15 svarande

(på denna fråga var det möjligt att välja flera svarsalternativ)

Optimal control»5 33%
Lyapunov based contro»3 20%
Autotuning»5 33%
Adaptive control»11 73%

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- maybe an compulsory assignment on optimal control.»
- The adaptive part of the course is better suited for a hand in or simulation lab.»
- More assignments would be nice to give more practise.»
- In the laboratory, the used model was quite confusing and unstructured. »
- Exercises on class were not adequate and usually not very clear»
- the extent of the course»
- [****]The computer lab is very good learning experience. But I feel that the students weren"t very well prepared for it. I (and many with me) got the impression that it wasn"t much to prepare. It was. The biggest problem is that the lab-pm needs to be updated to fit the course. For instance, it"s not stated that the Simulink model is given. And it is only mentioned in a small footnote that, and which problems which need to be prepared in advance. The two hours computer lab would need 4 hours.»

17. Additional comments

- none.»
- The best courses in control I have taken at Chalmers.»
- The idea behind Optimal Control should be explained to a further extent, especially the idea behind the Hamilton function. Many students were quite confused, because it was not clear why the Hamilton function leads to an optimal solution.»
- Many thanks to Torseten Wik for great lectures.»
- maybe a stronger theoretical basis would help to understand some topics. A general methodology was missing along the course and each example was presented as a special case which sometimes is quite confusing.»
- Have you considered having two separate courses, one in general non-linear methods and one in adaptive control? As it is now the adaptive part is kind of small and it would have been nice to learn more of it»
