Control and Measurement Systems

Contents

Students learn the concepts of modern control systems starting with the fundamentals of system and control theory. Continuing lectures enable students to autonomous development of efficient control circuits. The requirements demand a consolidated knowledge in engineering (mechanics, electro-techniques, drive engineering, etc.) as well as in mathematics.<
