Controlling Hybrid Systems: From Theory to Application


M. Morari

International Workshop on Hybrid Systems : Computation and Control (HSCC), Santa Barbara, California, 29 - 31 March 2006

Satellite event on "Topics in Computation and Control", 27 - 28 March 2006

Theory, computation and applications define the evolution of the field of control. This premise is first illustrated with some historical examples and then with the emerging area of hybrid systems. Many practical problems can be formulated in the hybrid system framework. Power electronics are hybrid systems by their very nature, systems with hard bounds and/or friction can be described in this manner and problems from other domains, as diverse as driver assistance systems, anesthesia and active vibration control can be put in this form. We will highlight the theoretical developments and mention the extensive software that helps to bring the theory to bear on the practical examples. We will close with an outlook for hybrid systems and control more generally.
