Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
One project for 20 points will be assessed during the course of the semester. The activity during the seminars will be rated by maximum of 30 points. To obtain a final grade A, the student must gain at least 92 points. To obtain grade B, he or she has to gain at least 83 points. To obtain grade C, it is necessary to gain at least 74 points. 65 points is the minimum for the student to obtain grade D and 56 points is the minimum for grade E.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
After completion of this course, the students will have an overview of what is cybernetics in terms of control and how is it used in controlling of technical, biological and other processes.
Course contents:
1. Cybernetics as a science about control.
2. Processes and their mathematical description (technical, biological, economical and social). Cybernetic model of a process.
3. Static and dynamic properties of processes. Steady state and transient conditions.
4. Technical process (a simple process describable using knowledge of physics and electrical engineering) and its mathematical model.
5. Transfer function as a simple model of the system. Properties of transfer functions, poles, zeros. Frequency transfer function.
6. Graphic representation of the models and its utilization in assessing the dynamic properties of systems.
7. Transient response of the systems.
8. Frequency response of the systems and its practical use and measurement. Control of processes.
9. The principle of feedback. Control as an essential activity in operation of processes.
10. Stability and quality of control of processes.
11. Biological process. Control of glycemia value in the blood of living organisms.
12. Economical processes and their models.
