Course Description

Dynamic modeling of mechanical, electrical, electro-mechanical, hydraulic and thermal components. Application of ordinary differential equations, Laplace transforms, and numerical simulation for the response of these systems; response due to initial conditions and to transient and sinusoidal inputs using both time and frequency domain approaches considered. Use of block diagrams and numerical simulation using MATLAB and Simulink for linear time invariant systems is emphasized. Project work includes model identification and synthesis from measured data for first and second order systems.
