    Condition Passed exams: Control Systems 1 and Control Systems 2, or equivalent exams (analysis and linear control design).
    The goal Introduce students to advanced concepts of nonlinear control. Acquiring mathematical apparatus and adequate exact methods of nonlinear control analysis and synthesis. Provide the students with the ability to evaluate nonlinear phenomena in systems and use of provided knowledge in exact modeling and high performance conventional nonlinear control and fuzzy control and fuzzy control.
    The outcome Students are able to: create nonlinear models for plants, implement nonliear control design by using some of acquired advanced methods, analyze achieved closed-loop properties.
    Contents of lectures Review of nonlinear analysis methods. Jacobian linearization and linear control design. Methods of exact input-output linearization and input-to-state linearization. Sliding-mode control. Introduction to fuzzy logic. Fuzzy-Knowledge Based Control (FKBC): structures and design parameters. Intuitive approach to FKBC design. Fuzzification of conventional control. PID-like FKBC.
    Contents of exercises Computer aided analysis and nonliear control design. Analysis of designed closed-loop systems by computer simulation.
