learning outcome

By the end of the course, the students are able to classify and evaluate the elementary properties of common signals and hybrid dynamic systems. They areable to derive hybrid dynamic system models for engineering processes and master the use of tools for their simulation. They have basic knowledge in the analysis, synthesis, and stability of hybrid control-loop structures in the time domain.
