Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: written exam (Klausur) (135 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each semester
  • Examination number: 10210 ("Mechatronic Systems")

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • Sensors (Acceleration, Force, Torque, Pressure, Temperature)
  • Actuators (electromechanical actuators, motors, piezoelectric, pneumatic, and hydraulic actuators)
  • Dynamic characteristics of sensors and actuators
  • Signal processing (time-continuous, discrete, digital/analogue)
  • Description and modelling of physical systems in mechatronics (mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal systems, multi-body dynamic)
  • Representation and transformation of physical systems in time domain, frequency domain and image domain (state space model, Laplace and Fourier transformation)
  • Control systems (stability, state feedback, control design, filtering, observer, system identification)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students will be able to
  • describe the functionality of sensors and actuators.
  • model a mechatronic system.
  • apply concepts of control techniques to mechatronic systems.
  • deploy computer programs to simulate models and develop control systems.
