Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will be able to formulate the basic methods of simulation models realization on the digital computer. Student will get an overview of the basic principles of mathematic-physical modelling, similarity and modelling and of classic and artificial intelligence methods necessary for model realization. Student will be able to create mathematical models of selected real processes with aim of classic simulation programs and with artificial neural networks exploitation

Teaching methods

Project work


The aim of the course is to acquaint with the methods of implementation of simulation models of dynamic systems. The explanation is based on the mathematical description of the dynamic system. Students are explained the principles of mathematical and physical modelling, principles of theory of similarity and modelling and to the methods necessary for implementation of the model on a digital computer. Students are introduced to artificial intelligence (fuzzy models, expert models, models of neural networks, genetic algorithms), attention is paid mainly to the models of neural networks and their application to the selected technological processes. The exercises consist of creation of mathematical models for selected real dynamic systems and their verification using SIMULINK simulation program. Models of real processes with the use of artificial neural networks are created using software Statistica - Neural Networks, MATLAB -Neural Network Toolbox and NEUREX.
