ING-INF/04 - SYSTEMS AND CONTROL ENGINEERING
Primo semestre dal Oct 4, 2021 al Jan 28, 2022.
The course aims to provide the mathematical tools needed to model, analyze and control a dynamic system in the time and frequency domain. At the end of the course the student will have the following knowledge and skills: Ability to analyze the properties of a dynamic system in the time and frequency domain; Ability to study the stability, robustness, and performance of a feedback system; Ability to design a control system starting from performance and robust stability requirements; Ability to evalu- ate the feasibility of a control system and choose the most appropriate design method. The student should also be able to work with other engineers (e.g. electronic, control, mechanical engineers) to design advanced control architectures, and to increase autonomously his/her knowledge in the con- text of control systems.

The exam will consist of a written test on the course topics. The exam will contain questions in the form of theoretical questions and exercises where it will be required to apply specific theoretical knowledge. Each question will contribute to the total score according to an additive metric that will be specified before the exam.
If the written test is evaluated positively, an optional oral test is foreseen, which will cover the theoretical part of the course. The overall score will be the mean of the oral and written tests scores.
Both tests (written and oral optional) will be aimed at understanding the theoretical arguments and the ability to apply logic schemes to specific problems.
