Objectives
THE COURSE AIMS AT LEARNING METHODS FOR THE STATE-SPACE ANALYSIS OF DYNAMIC SYSTEMS IN CONTINUOUS-TIME AND DISCRETE-TIME. IT ALSO PROVIDES EXPERTISE ON ADVANCED DESIGN METHODS FOR CONTROLLERS OF DYNAMIC SYSTEMS.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES TO CONTROL DYNAMIC SYSTEMS. ANALYSIS OF NONLINEAR SYSTEMS. OPTIMAL CONTROL.

APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
KNOWING HOW TO DESIGN A FEEDBACK CONTROLLER FOR LINEAR OR NONLINEAR DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS. BE ABLE TO ANALYZE LINEAR AND NONLINEAR CONTROL SYSTEMS.


MAKING JUDGEMENTS
TO IDENTIFY THE BEST METHOD TO FEEDBACK CONTROL A DYNAMIC SYSTEM WITH SINGLE INPUT AND SINGLE OUTPUT.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS
BEING ABLE TO EXPLAIN VERBALLY A TOPIC OF THE COURSE. KNOWING HOW TO WRITE A REPORT ON AN ANALYSIS OR A PROJECT CARRIED OUT.

LEARNING SKILLS
BEING ABLE TO APPLY THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE TO DIFFERENT CONTEXTS FROM THOSE PRESENTED DURING THE COURSE AND TO STUDY IN DEEP THE COURSE TOPICS ALSO USING DIFFERENT REFERENCES.
Prerequisites
FOR THE SUCCESSFUL ACHIEVEMENT OF THE COURSE GOALS, A BASIC MATHEMATICAL KNOWLEDGE IS REQUIRED, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO LINEAR ALGEBRA, COMPLEX DOMAIN ANALYSIS, CLASSICAL FEEDBACK DESIGN METHOD FOR DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS.

Teaching Methods
LECTURES, CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY PRACTICE. IN CLASSROOM PRACTICE, PROBLEMS ARE ASSIGNED, SOLVED AND DISCUSSED USING SCIENTIFIC CALCULATOR AND DIAGRAMS. IN LABORATORY PRACTICE PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED USING MATLAB, A PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT TO DESIGN CONTROLLERS.
Verification of learning
THE FINAL EXAM IS DESIGNED TO EVALUATE AS A WHOLE: THE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONCEPTS PRESENTED IN THE COURSE, THE ABILITY TO APPLY THAT KNOWLEDGE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS OF ANALYSIS AND CONTROL OF DYNAMIC SYSTEMS, INDEPENDENCE OF JUDGMENT, COMMUNICATION SKILLS AND THE ABILITY TO LEARN.
THE EXAM CONSISTS OF A WRITTEN TEST, WHOSE PURPOSE IS TO ASSESS THE ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE USING MATLAB, TO WRITE A TECHNICAL REPORT, THE INDEPENDENCE OF JUDGMENT, AND AN ORAL INTERVIEW, THE PURPOSE OF WHICH IS TO ASSESS THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY TO UNDERSTANDING, THE ABILITY TO LEARN, ORAL PRESENTATION.
THE WRITTEN TEST CONSISTS IN SOLVING THREE PROBLEMS CHOSEN AMONG THOSE PRESENTED IN THE COURSE INCLUDING. THE WRITTEN TEST WILL BE EVALUATED BY THE FOLLOWING SCALE: EXCELLENT (OTTIMO), GOOD (BUONO), FAIR (DISCRETE), SUFFICIENT (SUFFICIENTE), REJECTED (INSUFFICIENTE). REJECTED TEST MUST BE REPEATED. THE TEST WILL BE ASSESSED AS SUFFICIENT IF THE SOLUTION OF AT LEAST TWO PROBLEMS PRESENTED ABOVE HAVE BEEN CORRECTLY SET EVEN IF THE RESULTS ARE INCORRECT. THE TEST WILL BE EVALUATED AS EXCELLENT IF ALL THE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN SOLVED CORRECTLY PRESENTED WITH A CLEAR EXPOSITION OF THE USED METHODOLOGIES.
THE ORAL EXAMINATION WILL COVER ALL THE TOPICS OF THE COURSE AND ASSESSMENT WILL TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE KNOWLEDGE DEMONSTRATED BY THE STUDENT AND THE DEGREE OF ITS DEPTH, PROVEN ABILITY TO LEARN, THE QUALITY OF THE PRESENTATION.
THE FINAL EVALUATION, EXPRESSED IN THIRTIETHS, DEPENDS ON THE MATURITY GAINED ON THE COURSE CONTENT, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE QUALITY OF WRITTEN AND ORAL EXAM AND THE MAKING JUDGMENT DEMONSTRATED. THE EVALUATION OF THE WRITTEN TEST WILL ACCOUNT FOR 40% AND THE ORAL INTERVIEW FOR 60%.THE CUM LAUDE MAY BE GIVEN TO STUDENTS WHO DEMONSTRATE THAT THEY CAN APPLY THE KNOWLEDGE AUTONOMOUSLY EVEN IN CONTEXTS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED IN THE COURSE.
