Course detail

Intelligent Control Systems

FSI-RIRAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course gives a brief overview of selected parts of control theory with accent on their practical application. An applicability of introduced resources to tasks of technical systems and processes control is discussed.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will learn basics of these methodologies.


The orientation in basic knowledge of dynamic systems and classic controller design methodology is supposed. The orientation in control theory and fuzzy logic is suggested.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit is conferred on the base of active participation assessment in seminars and results of written test with four questions. The evaluation is fully in competence of a tutor according to the valid directives of BUT.

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.


The goal is to master the basic design methodologies of state controllers and fuzzy controllers.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The attendance at lectures is recommended while at seminars it is obligatory. Education runs according to week schedules. The form of compensation of missed seminars is fully in the competence of a tutor.
