13. Prerequisites  
14. Description of lectures
Basic concepts and techniques for describing discrete-event systems: discrete-event systems theory, Petri nets and automatons, qualitative difference equations, rules and rule systems with time-dependent predicates, inference and search, graph-type models, effect graphs
Solving discrete-event system models, availability graph. Dynamic analysis of discrete-event systems: constraint, availability analysis, dead ends.
Model-based generation and verification of discrete control sequences. Direct and prediction diagnostics based on discrete-event system models.
Generalization of discrete-event system models to describe different classes of hybrid systems.
15. Description of practices
16. Description of labortory practices
17. Learning outcomes
A. Knowledge

  • The subject knowledge provides high-level theoretical knowledge to PhD students intending to delve into transport science to solve modeling, dynamic analysis, diagnostic, and control tasks in transport systems that can be described as discrete events
B. Skills   C. Attitudes   D. Autonomy and Responsibility  
18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
An individual task for modeling and dynamic analysis of a simple discrete event transport system. The prerequisite for obtaining the signature and for passing the exam is the complete and timely submission of the individual student assignment. The exam is oral.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
20. Learning materials
