Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture – 2 hours weekly (on-site method)
laboratory practice – 3 hours weekly (on-site method)
Credits allocated:
Recommended semester:
Automation and Information Engineering in Chemistry and Food Industry – master (full-time, attendance method), 2. semester
Level of study:
Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods:
The course is evaluated as follows: 30% work during the semester, 30% written examination, and 40% oral examination (theory). Evaluation scale follows the standard scale of the faculty.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students know advanced theory of automatic control, are able to design feedback control of discrete-time processes in state and input-output representations. Students understand discrete-time and optimal control (calculus of variations, PMP, dynamic programming) and are able to design optimal controller and Kalman filter.
Course contents:
1. Discrete-time control (allowance 14/21)
a. Z-transform
Discrete-time dynamic systems
Properties of discrete-time dynamic systems
Control design for discrete-time systems

2. Optimal Control (allowance 12/18)
a. Optimisation and optimal control
Calculus of variations
Pontryagin's principle of minimum
Dynamic programming
Optimal state observers
