Seminari di Automatica e Robotica: F. Ferrante - Hybrid dynamical systems - 16.12.2021

Il secondo incontro del ciclo di "Seminari di Automatica e Robotica", organizzato dal gruppo di Automatica del Dipartimento di Ingegneria, Università degli Studi di Perugia, laboratorio ISARLab ( si terrà giovedì 16 dicembre, ore 15.30, nell'aula 11 del Polo di Ingegneria.

Relatore: Francesco Ferrante, Dipartimento di Ingegneria, Università degli Studi di Perugia
Titolo: Hybrid dynamical systems.

Il seminario potrà essere seguito anche online, a questo indirizzo:

Hybrid dynamical systems, when broadly understood, encompass dynamical systems where states or dynamics can change continuously as well as instantaneously. Hybrid control systems arise when hybrid control algorithms algorithms which involve logic, timers, clocks, and other digital devices are applied to classical dynamical systems or systems that are themselves hybrid.
Hybrid control may be used for improved performance and robustness properties compared to classical control, and hybrid dynamics may be unavoidable due to the interplay between digital and analog components of a system.
In this talk, I will provide an overview on hybrid dynamical systems with a special focus on stability analysis In particular, I will show how classical results available for continuous time and discrete time systems can be obtained by specializing more general results for hybrid systems.
Examples and applications will illustrate the theoretical concepts and hopefully spark new ideas.
