  3. Automatic control theory

Automatic control theory

The Automatic control theory is known as a scientific discipline with a deep mathematical background. However real life projects need just few basic principles of automatic control. This course was developed for students of engineering and managerial professions who want to know most popular practical applications of automatic control theory.

This course represents:

The course will give you the following knowledges:

The course will help to understand:

Learning outcomes

This course helps developing basic automation skills for undergraduate students of engineering programs and graduate students in managerial programs. We discuss automatization tasks for few real objects: crane, electrical furnace, water level control. The first step will be a simple logic controller, after that we will discuss adjustment of PID controller. The next step will help you to understand why control system usually does not work the way it was promised to: we will study nonlinearities and time-delays. As a practical result of the course we offer building your own control system with usage of Arduino platform.
