Modern Control Theory

(Basic subject)

Amount of credits – 5.

Forms of the educational process – lectures, laboratory classes.

Form of final control – exam.


Under the control of the process of purposeful change in the behavior of the system with the help of information effects produced by man or device. The process of control, as the process of developing control effects is an information process. Discipline "Modern Control Theory" gives an opportunity to get acquainted with the basic concepts in the field of computer-aided control theory. As a result of studying the discipline, the student will be able to translate the problems of the subject area into the language of computer technology control and modeling of systems and processes. During the study, ideas will be formed on the technical and methodological means of analyzing and synthesizing digital control using both traditional methods and methods of computing intelligence.

The purpose of the discipline.

The purpose of teaching the discipline "Modern Management Theory" is to form students theoretical knowledge and acquire practical skills and knowledge on the theory of management in control systems based on information technology.

Task of the discipline.

To achieve the goal set the following main tasks:

  1. Formation of students competence in the analysis and synthesis of control systems of various functional purposes; Organization of information flow processing in information management systems (IMS) using modern approaches to the development of automated IMS;
  2. Mastering practical skills in the environment of finished software products, intended, in particular, for the analysis and synthesis of control systems.
Subject learning objectives

After successful study of a discipline the student must be able to:

  • Analyze the dynamics of linear systems in the space of states, analyze the stability of automatic control systems;
  • To solve problems of analysis and synthesis of deterministic and stochastic digital control systems;
  • Work with ready-made software products, intended, in particular, for analysis and synthesis of control systems;
  • To apply modern information functional technologies for management of organizational and technical objects;
  • To develop principles of automatic control systems;
  • Use modern management principles based on multicriteria models for solving business management tasks.
Course intended learning outcomes

The study of the discipline involves the formation and development of students competencies:

  • the ability to study complex control systems in the conditions of incomplete information on their functioning;
  • the ability to choose a modern mathematical apparatus for the construction of efficient control systems;
  • the ability to determine the basic approaches to the identification of control systems and the synthesis of digital regulators;
  • the ability to develop management systems for organizational and technical objects using intelligent methods;
  • the ability to work with modern software products, intended, in particular, for analysis and synthesis of control systems.

In this discipline the key issues in the study of control systems are discussed, the place of discipline in industry and scientific research is considered.

This discipline can help students in the study of innovative functions of modern management systems in different fields and new trends in their development.
