ECE229 - Hybrid Systems

Units: 4

Instructor(s): Hespanha, Teel


Introduction to hybrid systems that combine continuous dynamics with discrete logic. Topics include a modeling framework that combines elements from automata theory and differential equations, simulation tools, analysis and design techniques for hybrid systems, and applications of hybrid control. Recommended preparation: The students should be proficient in linear algebra and basic differential equations (at the level of MATH5A-C) and some scientific programming language (e.g., MATLAB). Basic knowledge of controls concepts (at the level of ECE147A) is helpful but not essential.
