Automatic Control Systems

This course is part of the programme:
Master in Engineering and Management (Second Level)

Objectives and competences

Course objectives:

  • to teach theoretical principles of modelling, computer simulation and control,
  • to teach students the system engineering approach and understanding of the industrial control systems,
  • to train competent professionals that are able to communicate with control-systems design engineers.
  • Competences:

    • knowledge of fundamental concepts of continuous control in industry,
    • knowledge of fundamental forms of signals that can be found in continous-time systems and their transformation to discrete form,
    • knowledge of modelling and analysis of continous-time and discrete-time systems,
    • basic knowledge of continous-time control design methods,
    • knowledge of methods for the analysis of closed-loop systems in the time domain.

Prerequisites

Required prerequisit knowledge from courses: Selected topics from applied mathematics and Introduction to production systems from the same programme and knowledge of mathematics, physics, computer science and electrical engineering on a bachelors level of general engineering course.
