10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  This subjects introduces the students to the use of computer implemented algorithms for process control, whether the computer is a microprocessor, microcontroller, PC, or an industrial computer. The course also utilizes the previous knowledge of control theory by implementing the known and taught control algorithms using computers, thus coping with both the hardware and software issues of the process. The course therefore makes the students competent to study and design computer controlled processes.

11.    Course Syllabus: Basics of computer control. Hardware aspects and technical equipment of the computer control systems. Signal inputs and outputs. Control loop elements. Software aspects of the computer control systems. Real time process control. The concept of interrupt in computer control. Computer control of complex systems. System decomposition. Hierarchical and multilevel control. Linear digital control. Discrete-time computer control systems. Discrete-time PID control and optimization. Discrete-time state space control. Pole-zero cancellation control. Dead-beat control. Discrete-time control of processes with large delays.

12.    Learning methods:  Combined: presentations, homework, project assignments, practical laboratory work.

19.    Conditions for acquiring teacher’s signature and for taking final exam Regular attendance at classes and completion of the laboratory work assignments.
20.  Forms of assessment Two partial written exams are scheduled during the semester (at the middle and at the end of the semester, each with duration of 120 minutes), tests that are conducted during the classes, as well as project assignment, which is presented/defended during the semester.
1. Students who have passed the partial exams are considered to have passed the final written exam. A final oral exam can also be scheduled, with duration up to 60 minutes. The final grade is formed based on the points from the partial written exams, the tests, the project assignment and the final oral exam (if scheduled).
2. In the planned exam sessions, a final written exam is taken (lasting 120 minutes). For students who have passed the final written exam, a final oral exam can also be scheduled (with duration up to 60 minutes). The final grade is formed based on the points from the final written exam, the tests, the project assignment and the final oral exam (if scheduled)
