LABORATORY OF AUTOMATIC CONTROL

It provides a laboratory environment for both education and research in the area of computer-based control systems, optimisation, and application of artificial intelligence methods. The educational profile of the laboratory is fully correlated with the lectures on automatic control, modern control systems, and the modelling and simulation of control systems, which are delivered to both undergraduate and graduate students of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
In our laboratory, we have state-of-the-art equipment for research into and practice of control engineering. The equipment includes the following testbeds:

two-tank system with flow delay, tandem pendulum system, magnetic suspension system, speed control system with variable load, air flow and temperature control system, laboratory experimental robot.

For all these systems, real-time digital control procedures are implemented, which communicate with both system sensors and system actuators by I/O boards and power interfaces. The I/O boards are controlled by real-time software, which operates in the Matlab/Simulink environment. Some of the systems are controlled by programmable logic controllers (PLCs) as well.
