Hybrid dynamical systems contain state variables that change continuously in some regions of the state space and that change instantaneously in other regions of the state space. Examples of hybrid systems include mechanical systems with impacts, electrical circuits with impulsive behavior, and control systems that employ both logical and continuous feedback. In feedback control systems, a primary objective is to induce asymptotic stability and to ensure that this property is robust to modeling errors, measurement noise, and other real-life phenomena that might hamper closed-loop system performance. Recently, significant progress has been made for hybrid systems on stability analysis tools and robustness results that parallel what is available for differential and difference equations. In this lecture, some of these tools and results will be described and their impact on control design will be illustrated.
Andrew R. Teel received his A.B. degree in Engineering Sciences from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, in 1987, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1989 and 1992, respectively. After receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Teel was a postdoctoral fellow at the Ecole des Mines de Paris in Fontainebleau, France. In September of 1992 he joined the faculty of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Minnesota where he was an assistant professor until September of 1997. In 1997, Dr. Teel joined the faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he is currently a professor. Professor Teel has received NSF Research Initiation and CAREER Awards, the 1998 IEEE Leon K. Kirchmayer Prize Paper Award, the 1998 George S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award, and was the recipient of the first SIAM Control and Systems Theory Prize in 1998. He was also the recipient of the 1999 Donald P. Eckman Award and the 2001 O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award, both given by the American Automatic Control Council. He is a Fellow of the IEEE.
