Nonlinear System Theory


3.0 Credit, 3 Lecture, 0 Lab
Mathematical introduction to nonlinear dynamic systems. Topics include Lyapunov methods, passivity, input-output stability, and nonlinear feedback design.

Modeling Systems

1. The ability to model general multiple-input multiple-output time-varying nonlinear systems using state space notation.

Analyzing Stability Properties

2. The ability to analyze stability properties of nonlinear systems using Lyapunov stability methods.

Designing Control Strategies

3. The ability to design control strategies for nonlinear systems using feedback linearization, backstepping, sliding mode, and adaptive control methodologies.
