Abstract-Hybrid control systems, that is, systems which contain both continuous dynamics
and discrete event dynamics are studied in this paper. First, a model is introduced that describes
the continuous plant and discrete event controller along with an interface which connects them. A
Discrete Event System (DES) automaton description is employed to describe the plant together with
the interface and it is used to analyze the hybrid control system. Controllability is defined for hybrid
control systems, enhancing existing DES control concepts. It is then used to obtaiu a controller
design method for hybrid control systems.
Keywords-Discrete event, Hybrid, Control, Automata. Feedback
