Course has been adjusted for remote participation in 2021. Some on-campus activities are available. Attendance at these where possible is encouraged.
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.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
After completing this course students will be expected to:
- implement a wide range of deterministic and probabilistic system models.
- demonstrate the relationship between discrete and continuous systems.
- illustrate simple properties of dynamic systems in both time and frequency domains.
- implement system models in Matlab.
- evaluate the appropriate modelling paradigm(s) to describe behaviour of real engineering systems.

Mapping of Learning Outcomes to Assessment and Professional Competencies
Assignments (7x5% = 35%), major project (35%), and a final exam (30%).
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
100 hrs of which 35 hrs will be formally facilitated either online or face to face.
