The course is structured in a flipped classroom style. The in-person discussions will take place in PWR 27, V 27.01 on Wednesdays (09:45 - 11:15). Video lectures will be made available on ILIAS.

Introductory Lecture: 12 April, 2023, Wednesday (V 27.01, PWR 27)

The flipped classroom concept will be explained during in the Introductory Lecture!


The course covers modern analysis and controller design techniques for nonlinear systems including Lyapunov stability, input-to-state stability, control Lyapunov functions, backstepping, sliding-mode control, input-output stability, dissipativity, passivity, and passivity based controller design.


The lecture material is available on the ILIAS-page of the course.
