Control of Technical Systems
Qualification aims
Students will learn, understand and be able to apply to technical processes
 digital signal processing,
 linear, nonlinear and modelpredictive control,
 automation of discrete event systems and
 protection, automation and control in electrical energy supply.
In particular, they will use "state of the art" automation and control software in order to
 record and analyse new tasks and problems,
 choose suitable solution methods,
 ascertain and evaluate correct solutions.
Students can
 generate, manipulate and analyze digital and optical signals
 design, analyze, evaluate and control continuous systems
 design, analyze, evaluate and control discrete event systems
 design, analyze, evaluate, control and protect electrical energy systems
by
 understanding and applying digital signal processing theory
 understanding and applying theoretical concepts of optoelectronics
 understanding and applying linear, nonlinear and model predictive control theory
 understanding and applying discrete event control theory
 understanding and applying electrical system theory
 using “state of the art” analysis and design software
 summarizing results in reports
 presenting results in oral presentations
to
 be able to carry out design tasks such as system or plant design, controller design, etc.
 be qualified for a professional career as automation engineer
