FEKT-BPA-PC2SAcad. year: 2022/2023
The subject is aimed at gaining the skills of algorithmization and structuring of the given task. Students also learn to choose a suitable environment for its implementation.
Students will gain the basics of programming in the C/C++ language, and students will gain practical experience in the implementation of tasks in the Dev C++ environment.
The second part of the course is focused on the philosophy of programming in the MATLAB environment, which is mainly aimed at the ability to independently create and debug a function for loading, processing, visualizing and saving data.
The third part of the course is devoted to visual programming in the LabView environment. The basic principles of implementing algorithms in this environment and linking to the user interface of the application are presented.

Learning outcomes of the course unit
in 1st part C/C++ language: A graduate of the course is able to explain the function of C language commands, describe the properties of basic data types, use functions included in standard libraries, compile an algorithm working with one-dimensional and multi-dimensional arrays, create a program in a console application using custom functions.
in 2nd part MATLAB: The student acquires the basic skills necessary to create a function/code that fulfills a specific goal. The mastered process includes the following basic phases: loading or generating input data, processing input data and their visualization using basic Matlab functions, saving and managing results in files. The result of learning will also be the ability to continuously verify and debug the developed code using the basic tools of the Matlab environment.
in 3rd part LabView: The student obtain the basic knowledge of the LabView environment and is able create a simple application.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods include lectures and computer exercises.
Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Course is taking advantage of e-learning (Moodle) system.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
1st part: C/C++ language - max. 33 points. There are 4 individual assignments in the exercises with a maximum of 6 points each and 9 points from the final test. The student must submit 4 completed assignments and obtain at least 4 points from the final test.
2nd part: Matlab - max. 33 points,
3rd part: LabView - max. 34 points (min. 10). The scoring in this part is divided between separate tasks and a final test. There are 4 separate tasks in the exercises, with a maximum of 6 points each. The final test is rated for a maximum of 10 points. Completion of the test is mandatory for credit, and the minimum number of points from this part is 10. Separate tasks are focused on the application of the knowledge gained in the given computer exercise. The test is focused on orientation and knowledge in the field of LabVIEW programming environment, algorithmization of tasks and implementation of basic functions.
Each teacher will introduce students to the conditions for obtaining points at their first lecture/exercise.
Part 1 (weeks 1-4): C/C++ language - console application, commands, data types, variables, array, input and output, cycle commands, conditional commands, creating your own function, function libraries, passing parameters.
Part 2 (weeks 5-8): MATLAB - recapitulation of programming basics, overview of libraries for electrical engineering and power engineering, advanced programming, Simscape Power Systems.
Part 3 (weeks 9-13): LabView – user interface, application creation, basic libraries, data structures, subprogram creation, use in energy.
The aim of the course is to teach students general programming habits and algorithmization of tasks.
Different programming languages and development environments are presented during the lesson, which can be used in further study.
A graduate of the course should be able to choose a suitable tool according to the type of task being solved and implement basic algorithms.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
The definition of controlled teaching and the method of its implementation are determined by the annually updated decree of the subject guarantor.
