Learning outcomes
The course is intended for students of the first year of the magister study level. The aim is to acquaint students with the information from the area of linear analogue and discrete control systems. There are defined basic principles of the analogue and discrete control systems and tools for practical solving. The content of the course is focused to the problematic analysis and synthesis of the analogue and discrete control loops, solving of the structure and parameters of the controllers both steady defined controller structure and general linear controllers.
The student is able to implement the proposal of a computer-based control system for technological processes.
It is assumed that the student has basic knowledge of college mathematic, physics and basics of automatic control, which is covered in the preceding semesters of studies.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

Independent work, ability to solve assigned laboratory tasks on selected control system.The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
