This course introduces a broad range of non-trivial techniques and approaches for modelling and simulation of dynamic engineering systems. Techniques include discrete event models; first- and second-order system models; time, frequency and state space relations; and feedback systems. These concepts are introduced through the modelling of electrical systems, mechanical systems, energy systems, control systems etc. Modelling software such as EXTENDSIM, Matlab and Simulink will be key tools in this course.

Learning Outcomes

    After completing this course students will be expected to:

    1. implement a wide range of deterministic and probabilistic system models.
    2. demonstrate the relationship between discrete and continuous systems.
    3. illustrate simple properties of dynamic systems in both time and frequency domains.
    4. implement system models in Matlab.
    5. evaluate the appropriate modelling paradigm(s) to describe behaviour of real engineering systems.
