This 6-credit module is
primarily offered to students of the Master of Science in Control Engineering (MCER) of the FacoltÓ di Ingegneria dell'Informazione, Informatica e Statistica of Sapienza University of Rome. Any student with a basic control background is welcome.


This course provides some advanced tools for the analysis and control of multivariable linear systems with particular emphasis on performance and robustness.


Single Input - Single Output (SISO) systems:
- performance and performance limitations
- robustness (additive and multiplicative representations) in the frequency domain, unstructured vs structured uncertainty
- small gain theorem
- general control problem
- robust stability and robust performance

Multiple Inputs - Multiple Outputs (MIMO) systems:
- Singular Value Decomposition, directionability
- loop shaping
- robustness, structured singular value (SSV)
mu-synthesis control problem
