    OVERVIEW

    Systems' Theory is one of the first discipline where mathematical and real aspects of engineering meet. Different skills are integrated to build and analyze mathematical models representing actual systems, in order to understand, foresee and control their behaviour.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aim to the modelling and understanding the behaviour of dynamic systems. Both time domain and tranfer matrices methods will be used for linear and stationary systems, either for continuous time and for discrete time cases. Some on nonlinear systems will be said at the end of the course.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to provide the students the necessay methods to build mathematica models fo dynamic systems. On the basis of such tools, the analysis and control of the considered systems will be carried out.

    Atthe end of the course, the student will be able to model and analyze in different situations 'real systems' and determine if and how the  behaviour of such systems can be controlle din presence of different external stimuli.

    PREREQUISITES

    Are required basik skills in Calculus, Algebra, Elements of geometry in the space, physics, electricity.

    The formal prerequisite requirements are only for the sudents in Biomedical Engineering. No formal prerequisite is required to the students in Computer Engineering

    TEACHING METHODS

    Front lessons with solved exercises. Depending on the pandemic situation lessons may be taught in blended modality and/or with the availability of videolessons

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    1) Preliminary definitions

    2) Continuous signals

    3) Laplace Transform

    4) State equations of linear stationary siystems

    5) Stability

    6) Reachability

    7) Observability

    8) Input-Output characteristics

    9) Systems' interconnection

    10) Models and analysis of nonlinear systems

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral examination. Students with learning disorders ("disturbi specifici di apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    Analysis of the properties of a dynamic system. Starting from an exercise students are required to show theircomprehension about the behavior of dynamical systems and the characterizing  properties.
