9. Course Prerequisites Passed: Automatic Control 1, Systems Thinking
10. Course Goals (acquired competencies): The basic goal of the course is student to gain knowledge for the basic concepts of nonlinear dynamical systems, their representation and modeling, and methods for analyzing the dynamic behavior and stability of these systems. The student will gain knowledge for solving control problems of nonlinear systems (being fully able to analyze the nonlinear control systems and having ability to design controllers for specific nonlinear system, using additional literature). The student will be able to use the gained knowledge on research projects, as well as to implement the knowledge in the industry.
11. Course Syllabus: Introduction to nonlinear dynamical systems; Linearization and its significance for the analysis of nonlinear systems; Nonlinear phenomena; Appearance, nature, systematization and description of nonlinearities and nonlinear control systems; Construction of phase portraits (analytical and graphical methods for plotting phase trajectories; isocline method); Equilibrium points and typical closed orbits; Limit cycles, jump resonance, bifurcation and chaos; Phase portraits of nonlinear second order control systems with typical nonlinearities; Harmonic linearization; Periodic oscilations of nonlinear control systems (determining periodic solutions and their stability in frequency domain); Lyapunov stability of nonlinear control systems; Absolute stability of nonlinear control systems; Introduction to the design of nonlinear control systems.
12. Learning methods: Combined way of learning: lectures, supported by presentations, homework and auditory exercises, as well as practical laboratory exercises.

19. Conditions for acquiring teacher’s signature and for taking final exam Regular attendance to the lectures and exercises, as well as successful and timely completion of all laboratory exercises.
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), as well as tests, scheduled during the 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 duration up to 60 minutes. The final grade is formed based on the points from the partial written exams, tests 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 and the final oral exam (if scheduled).
