Learning outcomes of the course unit

Passed student is qualified:
- to understand relation between mathematical model of the system and its dynamic behavior
- to understand mutual relation of dynamic models in the form of differential equation, state equation and transfer function
- to explain behavior of frequency response and step response
- to derive stabiblity of a feedback system
- to design the proper feedback controller


Student's necessary prerequisities are knowledge of mathematics (differential equations, Laplace transform) and from theory of analogue and digital circuits
