University without boundaries


  • What are Uninettuno Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC)

    Thanks to the UNINETTUNO MOOCs you will be able to freely follow the lectures of the best Italian and international lecturers drawn from a selection of the best courses of UNINETTUNO, in Italian, English and Arabic; you will have at your disposal digitised and indexed on-demand video lectures, usable on a PC as well as on smart phone and tablet, including hypertextual links to more-in-depth study materials (books and articles, practice work, slides, bibliographical references, lists of websites). You will also have at your disposal a collaborative discussion environment, a thematic forum by means of which you will be able to exchange views with your colleagues on the issues dealt with in the lectures, discuss the practice work done, cooperatively create new knowledge in a process that will see you active players of your own learning process.

  • How to get Credits (European Credits Transfer System) with Uninettuno MOOC

    If you have enjoyed the MOOCs experience, you can transform it into an actual asset for your academic and professional career: by enrolling in the corresponding UNINETTUNO university course, you will be included into a class and have the support of a tutor who will guide you along your learning path; you will be able to participate in a course delivery cycle, interact with professors and tutors in real time in UNINETTUNO virtual classrooms on the Web (on live streaming) or in UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge on Second Life; the tracking of your activities on the MOOCs will be recorded and you will be acknowledged as an attending student and will be able to sit for the exam that will allow UNINETTUNO to officially assign you – in case of success – the university study credits corresponding to the selected courses, based on the Credits (European Credits Transfer System) - European Credit Transfer System, recognised by the Italian and by EU universities.


The course # of Uninettuno allows you to get # university credits according with the European System ECTS (European Credits Transfer System) and legally recognized by European and International Universities.
In order to get credits you need to study online following the Uninettuno model until the final exam.

Information and communication technologies engineering (Academic Year 2013/2014) - Information and communication technologies engineering (with Helwan University)

Control System Analysis and Design

Credits: 12
Available languages: AR, EN, IT
Language: English
Course description
The course offers undergraduate students a rather broad view on Automatic Control methodologies and techniques for feedback linear systems.
Calculus 2
It starts from the modeling problem using Laplace domain transfer functions and time domain State Variables, then shows the techniques to gain an inside view to the system structure (Kalman decomposition) and stability and to analyze the system performances both at steady state and during transients. Basic design technics are then introduced and finally the methodologies for the implementation of a control devices by a computer (i.e. as a discrete-time system) is presented.
Representation of Linear Time Invariant (LTI) systems
State-variable description of linear dynamic systems; state-transition matrix and equation; characteristic equation and eigenvalues.
Analysis in the time domain for discrete time and continuous time systems: free modes, eccitability and observability; free modes in the unforced evolution; free modes in the forced evolution.
Analysis in the complex domain for discrete time and continuous time systems: computation of the mathematical model; computation of the forced response.
The steady state response: existence conditions for periodic inputs and polynomial inputs. Computation of the state response for periodic/polynomial inputs.
Realization theory: minimal realizations; canonical realizations; Gilbert method.
Structural properties of linear time invariant systems : definitions of reachability and observability. Reachability and observability decompositions; Kalman decomposition.
Eigenvalues assignment and state reconstruction.
Decomposition of transfer functions. Impulse response and transfer functions of linear systems.

Mathematical modeling of physical systems
Electric networks, mechanical systems, thermal systems, hydraulic systems. DC motors and operational amplifiers in control systems.

Frequency-domain plots
Polar plots; bode plot; Nyquist plot; magnitude-versus-phase plot; gain and phase crossover points; minimum-phase and nonminimum-phase functions.

Stability of linear control systems
Bounded-input bounded-output stability and zero-input stability of continuous-data systems; methods of determining stability of linear continuous-data systems.

Frequency-domain analysis of control systems
Resonant peak, frequency peak and bandwidth of the prototype 2n order system; Nyquist stability criterion; relative stability: gain margin and phase margin; stability analysis with the Bode plot and with the gain-phase plot; the Nichols chart; attenuation and rejection of sinusoidal disturbances; sensitivity studies in the frequency domain.

Note: The students that have already passed the exam of "Control System Design" in the previous academic years have to study only the underlined subjects to complete this exam.
