Abstract [en]

Most practical control systems involve both analogue and logic components. Hybrid control system is a generic term for such systems, where the continuous and the discrete dynamics are interacting. These systems arise naturally in many applications of automatic control, for example when a physical plant is controlled by a finite set of controls. Hybrid systems is a recent and very active research area, which evolves from the foundations of control theory and computer science. The developed framework is suitable for the design of complex embedded and networked control systems, which are often hard to analyze with traditional tools. Here a brief introduction to hybrid control is presented and the EOLSS articles under hybrid control systems are put into context.
