FEKT-DKC-AM1Acad. year: 2020/2021
The subject focuses at studies of the methods of design of advanced control algorithms including classical control structures as well as algorithms of robust, adaptive and predictive control. Attention is also paid to information processing algorithms and state observers for realization of so called virtual sensors and algorithms of sensorless control. Traditional methods for systems control and processing information are complemented by artificial intelligence-based approaches. In addition to the theoretical aspects of the given topic, sample algorithms for advanced drives, mechatronic systems and mobile robots are also solved.
