 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.
