Decentralized and Distributed Control

This course offers an introduction to the analysis of large-scale dynamical systems and the design of control schemes when approaches based on centralized computations are inapplicable.

Multivariable control

This course covers methods for the analysis and control of systems with multiple inputs and outputs, which are ubiquitous in modern technology and industry. Special emphasis will be given to discrete-time systems, due to their relevance for digital and em...

Networked control systems

This course offers an introduction to control systems using communication networks for interfacing sensors, actuators, controllers, and processes. Challenges due to network non-idealities and opportunities offered by communication will be analyzed.
