This course introduces analysis and synthesis of large-scale systems. Topics: systemorder reduction algorithms, interconnected system stability, series expansion and singular perturbation. Lyapunov designs. Applications to traffic networks, power systems and transportation networks. Decentralized control: decentralized fixed-mode, LQR, frequency- shaped cost functionals and overlapping decompositions. Stability of interconnected systems and Vector Lyapunov analysis.
Prerequisites: Graduate status and EL 7253 or instructor’s permission.
