Primo semestre dal Oct 3, 2022 al Jan 27, 2023.

Learning objectives

The course aims to provide knowledge on the theoretical basis of the theory of dynamic systems, in the representation of state, with particular reference to the properties of time invariant linear systems and the methods for the synthesis of controllers for these systems. At the end of the course the student will have to demonstrate ability to apply the acquired knowledge: to provide the knowledge to analyze the structural properties of a linear dynamic system (e.g. reachability and observability) and its stability. Calculate the observability and reachability matrices; design a state feedback controller; design an asymptotic state observer; apply Lyapunov's theory of stability. Must have the ability to define the technical specifications to design a controller for linear dynamic systems described by differential or difference equations. S/He will have to be able to deal with other engineers (e.g. electronic, automatic, mechanical) to design advanced controllers for complex electromechanical systems. It will have to show ability to continue studies independently in the field of designing robust and optimal controllers for linear and non-linear systems.

Prerequisites and basic notions

The course requires knowledge in Mathematical Analysis I and II, Physics I and II, Linear Algebra and Geometry, Fundamentals of Computer Science.


Review of the basic concepts of system analysis:
- Definitions and properties of linear, time invariant (LTI) systems,
- models in time, frequency and "s" and "z" domains,
- the transfer function
- main properties of LTI systems in "t", "f", "s" and "z",
- discrete time systems and Z transform
- main properties of feedback systems.

State models:
- AR, MA, ARMA models,
- input-state-output representation,
- definitions of state, causality, algebraic equivalence,
- state and output update map,
- exponential matrix and its properties,
- Jordan canonical form, characteristic polynomial, algebraic and geometric multiplicity,
- modes, their characteristics, simple/asymptotic/BIBO stability,
- Relation between state representation and Laplace and Z transforms,
- Transfer functions, eigenvalues and poles.

Stability in state models:
- equilibrium state,
- stability of an equilibrium state,
- Lyapunov stability criterion,
- Lyapunov equation,
- linearization and reduced Lyapunov criterion.

- main concepts and the reachability Gramian,
- state space control,
- standard form of reachability, canonical control form,
- PBH criterion of reachability,
- state feedback.

- main concepts and observability Gramian,
- State estimation (open and closed loop),
- standard form of observability, canonical observation form,
- PBH criterion of observability.
- Duality:

Didactic methods

The course will consist of lectures in the classroom, along with shared slides, notes and possible additional material that could be useful to deepen the topics, and practical exercises in the classroom

Learning assessment procedures

The exam consists of two parts, a written test and an oral test. The written test consists of exercises on the topics covered in teaching aimed at assessing both the level of learning and understanding of the theoretical foundations studied during the course and the ability to put them into practice, critically, to solve engineering problems. The oral exam will deal with the theoretical insights of the course.

Evaluation criteria

At the end of the course, the student must demonstrate that:
1. have fully understood the main issues inherent to the course, both in a continuous and discrete context.
2. have a critical view of the issues addressed during the course and the results obtained from the application of specific methods;
3. knowing how to apply the knowledge acquired to solve in an appropriate way certain engineering problems of varying degrees of complexity;
Both parts (written and oral) will be carefully evaluated, thus giving equal importance to the correctness and effectiveness of the solutions adopted in solving concrete problems, as well as to the understanding of theoretical concepts.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The composition of the final grade will be given by the sum of the evaluations of the theory part (2/3) and of the oral exam (1/3). The exam is considered passed if in each of the two parts a score greater than or equal to 18 is achieved. Each evaluation remains valid for the entire current academic year.

Exam language

Inglese / English

Type D and Type F activities

The educational activities of type D are chosen by the student, those of type F are further knowledge useful for entering the world of work (internships, soft skills, project works, etc.). According to the Didactic Regulations of the Course, some activities can be chosen and included autonomously in the booklet, others must be approved by a special committee to verify their consistency with the study plan. Type D or F educational activities can be covered by the following activities.

1. Teachings taught at the University of Verona.

Include the teachings listed below and/or in the Course Catalogue (which can also be filtered by language of delivery via Advanced Search).

Booklet entry mode: if the teaching is included among those listed below, the student can include it autonomously during the period in which the study plan is open; otherwise, the student must submit a request to the Secretariat, sending the form to during the period indicated.

2. CLA certificate or language equivalency.

In addition to those required by the curriculum, the following are recognized for those matriculated from A.Y. 2021/2022:

  • English language: 3 CFUs are recognized for each level of proficiency above the one required by the course of study (if not already recognized in the previous course of study).
  • Other languages and Italian for foreigners: 3 cfu are recognized for each proficiency level starting from A2 (if not already recognized in the previous study cycle).

These cfu will be recognized, up to a maximum of 6 cfu in total, as type F if the teaching plan allows, or as type D. Additional elective credits for language knowledge may be recognized only if consistent with the student's educational project and if adequately justified.

Those enrolled until A.Y. 2020/2021 should consult the information found here.

Booklet entry mode: request the certificate or equivalency to the CLA and send it to the Student Secretariat - Careers for career entry of the exam, via email:

3. Soft skills

Discover the training paths promoted by the University's TALC - Teaching and learning center, intended for students regularly enrolled in the academic year of course delivery

Booklet entry mode: the teaching is not expected to be included in the curriculum. Only after obtaining the Open Badge, the CFUs in the booklet will be automatically validated. The registration of CFUs in career is not instantaneous, but there will be some technical time to wait.  

4. Stage/internship period

In addition to the CFUs required by the curriculum (check carefully what is indicated on the Didactic Regulations): here information on how to activate the internship. 

Check in the regulations which activities can be Type D and which can be Type F.
