Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The practical use of the experimental identification methods, realization of the mathematical models using the simulation programmes and numerical methods implemented in the simulation programmes are the main learning outcomes of the subject. The student is able to design the identification experiment and make a decision about the use of the identification methods based on the use of the deterministic or stochastic input signal, is able to choice a method for the evaluation of the response and parameterization of the used model. Student is able to use the methods for the identification of the discrete models of the systems. The student is able to create the models in the simulation programmes, set up the simulation conditions and parameters, knows the basic numerical methods and their use by the simulation of the dynamic systems. He is able to analyse the dynamics of the identified systems using the mathematical models.

Project work


The subject System Identification and Simulation is focused on the experimental identification of the dynamic systems and on the realization of the mathematical models of the dynamic systems using computer simulation. The methods for the model parameterization using different testing signals – step input, ramp signal, general input signal, random signal are explained after the summary of the used basic forms of the mathematical models in the time and frequency domain, continues and discrete models. The second part of the of subject is focused on the numerical methods used by the realization of the mathematical models on the digital computers. The curve fitting methods – approximation, interpolation, next numerical integration, numerical derivation and numerical methods for the solution of the differential equation – initial value problems, including of the conditions for their use and numerical stability of the obtained solution.
