Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject Automatic Control belongs to basic theoretical subjects, which form the background of the Mechatronic study. Its main aim is understanding of the simple continuous and discrete control systems and two- and three position control.

Teaching methods

Project work


Mathematical description of the linear dynamic systems, analysis and synthesis of the SISO control systems, problems of the digital and discontinuous control.
