 Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering
 Synopsis:

In technological plants and processes, a desired state or operation sequence is ensured by means of automatic control circuits. Fundamental notions, examples of control problems in continuous, discrete and eventually logical versions of control are the substantial subjects for part 1. A more detailed attention is paid to the role and forms of the mathematical model used in linear theory of continuous and discrete PID control. Methods of control loop synthesis and parameter optimization are dealt with in detail.
