FEKT-NDSSAcad. year: 2015/2016
Subject deals with modern problems in automation e.g. with distributed control systems. The main attention is given on the communication subsystem that creates the backbone of these systems. Students obtain a deep and large view of open system interconnection, communication standards, proprietary communication systems and their implementation. Next part of the subject deals with distributed control systems DCS from the first control level as many as the operator level. The last topic of the subject is the soft control.
