Switched/hybrid systems are dynamical systems that combine continuous dynamics and discrete events. Such systems are of theoretical interest and important in many applications, and have they have attracted considerable attention in the recent control literature. This advanced graduate-level course will introduce the students to recent research results on analysis and design of switched and hybrid systems.
Instructor: Daniel Liberzon.
Office: 144 CSL.
Email: liberzon at illinois.edu
Office hours: Thursdays 3:30-4:30pm.
The course will build on a standard
first-year graduate course in state-space linear systems, such as
Some knowledge of nonlinear system analysis techniques (such as those covered in ECE 517 or ECE 528) is a plus but not a requirement.
Required text: D. Liberzon, Switching in Systems and Control, Birkhauser, 2003. Available in UofI bookstore or on Amazon.com. Also available as PDF download from SpringerLink (subscription access from UIUC). The textbook material will be supplemented by recent research articles.
Final project: This course will involve a final research project, on a topic of your choosing, with an oral and/or written presentation towards the end of the semester. There will be no exams.
