Course description

Basics in Automatic Control and Control Systems Theory

The following topics are introduced and analyzed:

  • state-space modeling;
  • nonlinear systems theory; 
  • Lyapunov control theory;
  • Sliding mode control 
  • Linear Matrix Inequalities applied to Linear Parameter-Varying systems control.

The objective of the course of Robust Control and Flight Control is to provide in-depth knowledge of the state-of-the-art control methodologies for guaranteeing robustness. The course is organized to face the control topics from an aerospace point of view with practical examples and case studies.

The course is delivered with lectures and lab hours.

The exam is oral.

The exam starts with a discussion of the project work carried out during the semester to assess the level of knowledge of the student about the Flight Control techniques analyzed during the course.

The oral exam also includes the discussion of more general aspects regarding the Robust Control methodologies encountered during the lectures.

Lecture notes are sufficient to learn the topics faced during the course.
