Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results. Further information on this link
With this subject it is tried that the student acquires basic knowledge that allow him to analyze and to control dynamic systems of continuous time. The study of the behavior of the systems will be realised by means of the classic theory of control of linear systems, using the representation of a system by means of input-output relations.

Learning activities and methodology
- Skillful classes, classes of resolution of doubts in reduced groups, individual presentations of the students, individual tutorials and personal work of the student; oriented to the theoretical knowledge acquisition (3 credits ECTS). - Practices of laboratory and individual classes of problems in reduced groups, individual tutorials and personal work of the student; oriented to the acquisition of practical abilities related to the program of the subject (3 credits ECTS).
