Computer Aided Automatic Control Theory
- Department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering
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 and discrete time solved with support of computer program Malab/Simulink are the substantial subjects of the classes.
Previous knowledge of linear algebra, complex calculus, Laplace transform, linear differential equations is advantageous but not essential.
- Syllabus of lectures:
Principles of automatic control, terminology, tasks. Control system as a tool for designing, modelling, investigating real control circuits.
Controlled processes, description, modelling, ways of control. Controller selection and its parameter setting from the viewpoint stability and control quality.
Controllers operating continuously and discreetly in time - comparison, special features. Advanced control problems.
All demonstrated by examples continuously processed in MATLAB/Simulink program.
- Syllabus of tutorials:
Lectures and exercises are mutually interconnected and hold in computer laboratory with immediate computer demo or own solving problems by means program Matlab/Simulink.
- Study Objective:
To acquaint students of mechanical engineering with principles of automatic control, to teach them terms used in control system analysis and synthesis. They should understand nature of problems solved in control circuit design and be able to confront obtained theoretical knowledge with results from simulation based on use MATLAB/Simulink. More detailed attention is devoted to dynamic simulation of technological processes and their control.
