Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The student masters the basic principles of process identification from aperiodic and periodic step responses and is able to measure or simulate a step response and to identify the step response. The student knows the methods of PID controller tuning and can tune the PID controllers using various experimental methods or methods based on the knowledge of the process model in the form of a transfer function. The student is able to compare control responses using various quality criteria. The student knows the principles of process control using complex control structures, namely cascade control, structure with disturbance measurement, structure with auxiliary control input, Smith's predictor, ratio control. He/she knows the basic principles of control of selected types of processes in chemical and food technologies using simple feedback control loops and complex control structures. The student is able to design a simple feedback control loop or a complex control structure to solve a specific problem. The student knows basic types of actuators and understands the principles of their actions.
