The objective of the project is the scientific studies of programming techniques and simulation, control systems and artificial neural networks. It is proposed that implementation of algorithms for identification of Hopfield neural networks, using the Matlab / Simulink. The student will perform studies of systems modeling, transfer functions, parametric identification methods and artificial neural networks, in particular, the Hopfield neural networks and the tools of Toolbox Control of the Matlab / Simulink. The motivation of the studies is the identification of parametric models of biological systems Junction Knee Joint Leg-Foot. The results of this work may be used by research groups of Instrumentation and Control Department of Electrical Engineering in the development of a system of electro-stimulation to generate functional movements of lower limbs in paraplegic patients, with routine monitoring of treatment progress.
