SC4160: Modeling and Control of Hybrid Systems
Responsible Instructor: B.H.K. De Schutter
Contact Hours / Week x/x/x/x: 0/0/0/4
Education Period: 4
Start Education: 4
Exam Period: 4, 5
Course Language: English
Expected prior knowledge: basic systems and control course (such as e.g. SC3020ET, SC4020, SC4031, ...), basic experience with Matlab (for the practical assignment)
Course Contents: Hybrid systems are characterized by the interaction of time-continuous models (governed by differential or difference equations) on the one hand, and logic rules and discrete-event systems (described by, e.g., automata, finite state machines, etc.) on the other. In this course we give an overview of the field of hybrid systems ranging from modeling, over analysis and simulation, to verification and control. We particularly focus on modeling, analysis, and control of tractable classes of hybrid systems.
Study Goals: After this course the students should be familiar with some basic modeling, analysis and control techniques for hybrid systems, and they should be able to explain in their own words the main ideas of each method and to indicate the major advantages and disadvantages of each method.
The students should also be able to apply these techniques on simple case studies.
Education Method: Lectures
Literature and Study Materials: Lecture notes "Modeling and control of hybrid systems" by B. De Schutter and W.P.M.H. Heemels, Delft 2012 +
slides + handouts
Assessment: written exam (closed-book, no calculators, counts for 50% of the final marks) + practical assignment (assessed through written report, counts for 50% of the final marks)
