The goal Objective of the course is to inform the students about the techniques for modeling of continuous and discrete-time systems, to analyze their behavior (in time, frequency and complex domain), to analyze systems given in the state-space form, to close the loop in the state-space, and different criteria for stability checking.
The outcome Learning outcomes of the course are for students to have the following skills: to make an exhaustive analysis of continuous and discrete systems, to make simulation of its behavior either using input/output or state-space approach, to design state observer, to close the loop based on states or measurements and to make a proper stability analysis.

Contents of lectures Modeling of electromechanical systems, characterization of continuous and discrete systems. Discretization of continuous systems. State-space models. State controllability and observability. Design of state observers. Design of closed/loop systems based on states and measurements. Stability of continuous and discrete systems.
Contents of exercises Students have obligation to solve four practical problems in the laboratory (some of them are related to experiments with servo-mechanism with DC motor, the others are related to systems simulation and design of state observer using MATLAB program).
