Uppon completing this cousre the student will have the following competencies: to handle the main concepts and anaytical tools for continuous time dynamic systems specification, analysis and design, both in I/O formulation and state space formulation; basic analysis of nonlinear systems dynamic behaviour. He will be able to specify and implemet basic control systems, to evaluate control systems specifications and to proposedesign modifications.
The course aims to develop initiative, authonomy, implementation and group cooperation habilities.
Basic skills for the study of dynamic systems:
- differential equations
- Laplace transform and its use on dynamic systems
- transfer function, pole, zero
- frquency behavior

1.2 Loop gain shapping
2. State space systems behaviour
2.1 State space model
2.2 State transitions matrix and state equation
2.3 Eigen values and eigen vectors
2.4 State space representation properties
3. State feedback control systems

The course has classes and labs. On class the main concepts are presented and used, considering an analytical approach. During labs the techniques acquired are integrated into methodologies for problem solving, which are tested with actual problems.
Final grade = Examination mark × 0.70 + labwork mark × 0.30
- Required minimum mark of 10 out of 20 Labwork for Labwork ;
- Required minimum of 10 out of 20 for examination.
