Control Systems Laboratory

This laboratory is designed to give students the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge obtained from Fundamentals of Control Systems and Industrial Control Systems courses on the control systems. It consists of analysis, construction, and testing of analog and computer-aided digital controllers used on basic mechanical systems, and production of PLC-based solutions for small-scale problems that can be encountered in the industry. In the laboratory program, there are different applications ranging from basic control concepts to further topics.
