Invited Paper
In this paper, the supervisory control of hybrid systems is in-
troduced and discussed at length. Such control systems typically
arise in the computer control of continuous processes, for example,
in manufacturing and chemical processes, in transportation sys-
tems, and in communication networks. A functional architecture
of hybrid control systems consisting of a continuous plant, a dis-
crete-event controller, and an interface is used to introduce and
describe analysis and synthesis concepts and approaches. Our ap-
proach highlights the interaction between the continuous and dis-
crete dynamics, which is the cornerstone of any hybrid system study.
Discrete abstractions are used to approximate the continuous plant.
Properties of the discrete abstractions to be appropriate representa-
tions of the continuous plant are presented, and important concepts
such as determinism and controllability are discussed. Supervisory
control design methodologies are presented to satisfy control speci-
fications described by formal languages. Several examples are used
