Nonlinear Dynamics, Systems and Control
Learning Objective:To introduce fundamental concepts and tools which are useful in the analysis of nonlinear systems and in the design of controllers and estimators for such systems. The results are illustrated by and applied to a variety of engineering systems including aerospace systems mechanical systems and communication systems.
Topics Covered:Stability Concepts
- Stability, boundedness, decay rates, Lyapunov analysis
- Describing functions
- Singular perturbations
- Small gain theorem, circle criterion
Numerical Techniques for Analysis and Design including Linear Matrix Inequalities
