Syllabus
Target skills and knowledge: Knowledge of standard tools for dynamic systems analysis and control (both in the time-domain and in the frequency-domain).
Course unit contents: Both continuous-time and discrete-time systems dynamics analysis, (both in the time-domain and in the frequency-domain), system performances analysis.

Design of a feedback controller for a given plant.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Continuous-time systems dynamics: SISO input/output models, free output evolution, pulse response and forced output evolution, complete output evolution.

Stability and steady-state frequency response: the concept of stability, the Routh Criterion, steady-state signals, frequency responce, some elementary frequency responses.

Frequency response plots: Bode diagrams, Nyquist diagrams.

Step responce properties: step response and its main properties both in the time-domain and in the frequency-domain, rise time and bandwidth, settling time and resonance peak, system type.

Output feedback and BIBO stability: cart motion control, output feedback, BIBO stability of a feedback system, Nyquist criterion and its applications, operational amplifiers.

Feedback control: some preliminary properties of a standard feedback control scheme, compensator design (by resorting to standard structures), PID controllers.

Discrete-time systems dynamics: output evolution for ARMA (SISO) models, free evolution, pulse response and forced evolution.

Feedback control of discrete-time systems: discrete-time stability, steady-state response and frequency response, the bilinear transformation, discrete-time controllers design.

Design examples: development of some practical applications of control theory.
