Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject “Advanced Methods of Automatic Control ” belongs among subjects, which form the graduate profile of the student in master study program “Mechatronics”. Its objective is acquainting with the advanced methods, which are used in theory of automatic control. These methods are robust and optimal control.

Teaching methods



Robustness of the control system with analog controller. Optimal control systems, optimality criteria, methods of optimal control design. Robust control, control in sliding modes.
