10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  This course will introduce the students to the basics of control systems and their models and representation. With successful course completion, the students will be able to identify and model systems, and to analyze their features and parameters by using computer tools and software such as MATLAB. The students will also be capable of designing simple controllers for such systems, and will be able to analyze their performances.

11.    Course Syllabus: Содржина – EN: Introduction and basic concepts and definitions. Examples of control systems. Mathematical basics: differential equations, Laplace transformation, inverse Laplace transformation, transfer functions. Mathematical modeling of mechanical, electrical, and electrical-mechanical systems. Control system diagrams and characteristics: block algebra. Control system performances and design criteria: steady state error, transient state characteristics. Control system stability: algebraic stability criteria. Frequency domain analysis. State space analysis: state space and state variables, deriving the state equations from the differential equations or the transfer function model, fundamental matrix, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, matrix transfer function. Digital control systems. PID control basics.

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 the end of the semester, each with a duration of 120 minutes), as well as tests, which are envisaged to be held on the regular classes, and a test for the laboratory exercises (scheduled after the end of the exercises).
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 a duration of up to 60 minutes. The final grade is formed based on the points from the partial exams, tests and the final oral exam (if scheduled).
2. In the planned exam sessions, a final written exam is taken (duration 120 minutes). For students who have passed the final written exam, a final oral exam can also be scheduled (duration up to 60 minutes). The final grade is formed based on the points from the final written exam, the tests and the final oral exam (if scheduled).
