Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main goal of subject is to introduce the basic concepts from the area of automatic control for continuous systems, to solve tasks like determination of mathematical models, drawing basic characteristic, checking the stability, synthesis methods.

Teaching methods



The Laplace transform and its using in differential equitation solutions; analysis of close-loop control systems and their elements, the mathematical models (differential equitation, transfer function, step and impulse responses) for basic types of controlled systems (proportional, integral, differential); standard PID controllers (their mathematical models and realizations);stability of dynamic systems (Hurwitz and Nyquist criterias), close-loop control system synthesis (Ziegler-Nichols method, standard forms method, pole placement method)

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Students of full-time form have to solve two projects which contained basic tasks from area of automatic control and pass tests. Students of part-time form have to solve project with chosen task from automatic control area.
