System dynamics is the study of the response of engineering systems with changing time. The concepts learned in this unit can be used in a number of engineering disciplines including mechatronics, and in particular robotics, mechanical, electrical, aerospace and marine engineering, manufacturing and biomedical engineering. Many example problems will be given to illustrate the principles of system dynamics. The emphasis of this course will be on multi-particle and rigid body dynamics, electromechanical systems and computer aided design.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Solve multi-particle and rigid body kinematics problems.
- Solve multi-particle and rigid body dynamics problems using the Newton-Euler approach.
- Derive the equations of motion of mechanical, electrical and simple electromechanical systems using the Euler-Lagrange approach.
- Perform basic system identification of 1-DoF and 2-DoF mechanical oscillators.
- Construct computer models of simple electromechanical systems using multi-domain modelling software.
- Develop graphical models to analyze and predict the characteristics of complex network systems.
- Simulate and compare synchronization phenomena of complex network dynamics from large-scale circuits and power networks.
