Control Theory course deals with basic principles and methods of feedback control of single-input single-output linear dynamic systems. Students are acquainted with mathematical basics of control theory, with methods of modelling and analysis of controlled and control systems, with important types of feedback controllers, with stability of control systems and with basic method of feedback control systems design in the time domain. All methods and procedures are used for solving of selected examples. For modelling, analysis and design of control systems and for solving of problems and projects is used Matlab system for computation and visualization.
