Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Basic notions and concepts of infinte dimensional control theory will be discussed. In particular, the following topics will be covered:
  • Semigroups of operators,
  • Port-Hamiltonian Systems,
  • Stability theory for infinite dimensional systems and Port-Hamiltonian systems,
  • Inhomogenous abstract Cauchy problems and it's stability,
  • Systems with boundary control,
  • Applications.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students are able to analyze the solution behavior and stability of abstract Cauchy problems and Port Hamiltonian systems. They have studied examples which can be analyzed by applying infinite dimensional control theory and they can critically assess the possibilities and limitations of the use of these methods. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them. In particular, they are able to outline the conditions and assumptions that are necessary for the validity of the statements.
