A hybrid control system is a control theoretic model for a computer controlled engineering system. A definition of a hybrid control system is formulated that consists of a product of a finite state automaton and of a family of continuous control systems. An example of a transportation system consisting of a line of conveyor belts is used as a running example. The realization problem for this class of systems is discussed. Control synthesis of hybrid systems is in a first approach based on supervisory control of discrete event systems.
