Control Theory course deals with basic principles and methods of feedback control of single-input single-output linear dynamic systems. Students are acquainted with mathematical basics of control theory, with methods of modelling and analysis of controlled and control systems, with important types of feedback controllers, with stability of control systems and with basic method of feedback control systems design in the time domain. All methods and procedures are used for solving of selected examples. For modelling, analysis and design of control systems and for solving of problems and projects is used Matlab system for computation and visualization.

Aim of the course

Students will be able to:

  • solve basic computational and visualization tasks in the area of automatic control system in the environment of Matlab and its Control System Toolbox
  • investigate properties of t-invariant linear dynamical systems and determine their stability
  • design controller parameters using empirical and integral methods, design state controller and discrete controller with a finite number of steps
  • validate theoretical conclusions by simulation and analysis of time resposes of the system and by their visualization
  • carry out synthesis of simple control loop and improve its dynamic performance using simulation experiments
