Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is providing students of bachelor's program basic information on the field of cybernetics, particularly on the field of dynamical systems and automatic control. Students will be able to carry out an analysis of simple dynamic systems and feedback control circuits, and will obtain basic information about the hardware and software means used in automation. Practical assignments will be solved by PC with Matlab and Simulink/ Scilab.

Teaching methods

Project work


The Cybernetics course gives an explonation of the basic concepts of cybernetics, especially the basic features and characteristics of dynamic systems and control systems. Students get acquainted with the problematic of description and analysis of continuous and discrete linear dynamic systems. Further topics on the list are stability, steady-state analysis and control quality. The course also briefly presents problems of nonlinear control systems, and basic information about hardware and software means used in automation discipline.
