Objectives of the course
The course provides the students with the basic notions of dynamical systems theory, from physical modelling to analysis of stability, numerical simulation and feedback control, using state variables techniques.
Calculus, Linear algebra, basic notions of physics and electrical circuits.
Dynamical systems models:
examples of mechanical structures in translation and rotation, electrical networks, electro-mechanical systems, thermal exchange, etc.
Continuos and discrete time signals and their transforms
State variable representation and system classification
Numerical simulations for nonlinear systems
Linearization of state equations
Lyapunov stability theory
Linear systems
Reachabiliy and observability of linear systems
State feedback control
State observer design
Control via dynamic output feedback
Analysis of LTI systems in the complex domain.
Laboratories and/or exercises
The course includes practise sessions and lab activity for numerical simulations and computer aided design using Matlab.
