Course description

Dynamics and Control

This is an interactive course about the basic concepts of Systems, Control and their impact in all the human activities. First, the basic concepts of systems, dynamics, structure and control are introduced. Then, looking at many examples in Nature and human made devices, we will realize that the dynamic behavior of most systems can be modified by adding a control system. Later we will see how knowing how to evaluate the dynamic behavior of a system and measure its performance will provide the tools to design new controlled systems fulfilling some requirements.

By considering which are the benefits of control and the challenges for the future we will open the mind to tackle new applications and develop new scenarios from the micro-systems level to the common systems and the whole universe. An overview of the techniques available for a deeper introduction to the subject will be presented at the end.

Control technology is said to be a hidden technology. We do not notice it under normal operation, but it appears if a failure happens. Looking around in Nature and at human made devices, we realize that their behavior presents analogies and that we can manipulate their temporal evolution.

Who should attend?


In this course the generic concepts of operators and relationships between variables are used but maths are avoided as much as possible. A basic knowledge of physics will help but it is not mandatory.

What you'll learn

Characterizing the dynamic behavior of systems and the possibility to change it by introducing control devices is the main aim of the course. You will:

  • learn to analyze the dynamic properties of a system and the options to change its behavior according to some requirements.
  • learn the basic concepts to undertake further studies in control engineering.
  • see examples of its use in a variety of disciplines, from human and social sciences to any engineering field.
