The aim is to propose novel methods for analysis, verification and control of complex, large scale models, under the general framework of stochastic hybrid systems (SHS). SHS allow one to describe the interleaving between continuous and discrete dynamics and the effect of probabilistic uncertainty. We plan to combine techniques for SHS from the computer science (giving rise to theorem proving and model checking methods) and from systems and control engineering (giving rise to optimal control and randomized techniques). Fundamental research will be applied to problems in power networks, where SHS arise naturally: continuous dynamics model the evolution of voltages, frequencies, etc., discrete dynamics changes in network topology, and probability the uncertainty about power demand and power supply.
