Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Studets prepare project during semestr, it is connected to logic functions. Knowledge gained in lectures and exercises is checked by a point-based test.



Other requirements

It is necessary to solve projet and pass test.


Subject has no prerequisities.


Subject has no co-requisities.

Subject syllabus:

The course is divided into following areas: 1. Theory and practice of combinatorial and sequential circuits 2. Implementation of logic circuits, PLC 3. Laplace transform, solution of differential equations 4. Description of static and dynamic properties of systems 5. Stability control systems, stability criteria 6. Assessment of the quality control 7. Synthesis of controllers (the method based on experiment and the analytic solution) 8. Controllers - electronic, hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical 9. Actuators - electric motors, hydraulic and pneumatic 10. Sensors for temperature, position, pressure, force and flow
