Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will be able to analyze production processes from the standpoint of dependability improvement by conceptual and technical measures. Students will be competent to take a share in proposals, realizations and technique operation for dependability and production quality improvement in decision making process.

Teaching methods



Course deals with basic terms from technical cybernetics branch, methods of controlled systems selection on technological equipment, methods of controlled systems mathematical description, and types and characteristics of controllers and theory of feedback control. As next it instructs about methods of computer control of technological and basic types of used control algorithms and methods of their synthesis. Problems of dependability of automated systems are also discussed. Above mentioned problems are explained on examples of metallurgical plant automation with closed production cycle.
