    The thesis presents automatic control of window blinds on the facility. It describes methods for calculating the incidence angle and solar altitude, which are both important for the optimal control of blinds. The programme solution enables blocking or capturing of sun rays. The solution is developed on the Siemens series S7-300 controller with a structured control language and ladder logic. We simulated the operation of blinds and automised their control. A basic user interface has been developed, which shows the behavior of blinds and height of the sun according to the facility. In the conclusion we describe possible improvements and upgrades of the system. The appendix of the thesis contains detailed information on the calculus of incidence angle and solar altitude.
