Subject description


  • Enrolment in the 2nd cycle masters study programme.

Content (Syllabus outline):

Autonomous project work in various application domains of intelligent control:

  • Modern methods of modelling, simulation and identification for control.
  • Control of complex systems. Complex multivariable control design methods, hierarchical approaches, internal model control, individual channel design, and pole placement.
  • Adaptive control. Basic principles of adaptive control systems, adaptive controllers, self-tuning controllers, gain scheduling, parameter adaptive control systems and model reference adaptive control systems.
  • Predictive control. Major principles and methods of predictive control.
  • Nonlinear model based control. Controller design for nonlinear systems control. Fuzzy model based predictive control. Fuzzy adaptive control.
  • Production planning and control. Artificial intelligence methods, heuristics and multi-agent systems in planning and scheduling.

Objectives and competences:

Seminar comprises professional courses knowledge of the studying programme and directs students toward autonomous project work.
