Lecturer:

Tutor:
Jaromír Fišer (guarantor), Youssef Alsoufi, Matěj Kuře, Cyril Oswald, Pavel Trnka
Supervisor:
Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering
Synopsis:

Automatic controllers are important part of many industrial processes. The goal of this course is to introduce students into basic knowledge of automatic control theory and practice like transfer functions, open versus closed loop control, design of controllers and frequency based analysis of control systems. The course also concentrates on logic control and control via programmable logic controllers.

Some seminaries are arranged in laboratories where practical skills and control engineering methods are trained. Students begin to work with MATLAB software as a common platform of control engineers (MATLAB is used on all including most of the laboratory classes).

Requirements:

Active work on classes and laboratories, lab. report,knowledges according to lectures

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Essential Principles of Automatic Control, Signals and Systems.

2. Digital Logic Control.

3. Combinatorial Logic Circuits and Controllers.

4. Programmable Logic Controllers, Sequential Logic Circuits.

5. Continuous Linear Systems, Laplace Transform.

6. Transfer Functions, Mathematical Models, Poles and Zeros.

7. Transient and Steady State Response Analysis.

8. Detailed Analysis of Selected Processes.

9. Open Loop and Closed Loop Control.

10. Design of Proportional, Integral and Derivative Controllers (PID).
