General Information

Learning outcomes

Students are expected to acquire a solid knowledge of system and control theory, in term of a formal description of dynamic systems.

Major outcomes:
modelling, analysis and control of complex systems
development and implementation of mathematical methods for system modeling
theory of stability





Course contents

The course provides notions typical of the analysis of dynamical systems both continuous and discrete, in both deterministic and stochastic framework, to deal with the structural properties of the systems for a state space analysis.
The course develops the skill for analysis and synthesis of dynamical control systems, setting up a general methodology for automation engineering problems.
