This course will provide engineering students in the mechatronics major with solid background knowledge on modeling and simulation of dynamical systems with a particular view towards mechatronics applications, thus preparing them for the material in ENGN3331 System Dynamics and ENGN3223 Control Systems.
In a series of case studies of mechatronic systems, students will construct models that reflect the important part of the dynamic system response. In weekly guided workshops and computer laboratory sessions students will learn how to analyse dynamic behaviour based on computer simulations and how to use simulation data to make optimal design decisions.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Demonstrate a basic understanding of differential equations and stochastic processes and their role in engineering simulation.

2. Construct dynamical system models of simple engineering systems and analyse their basic properties through computer simulation.

3. Explain the fundamental practical limitations of numerical simulation of dynamical systems and know how to recognise them.

4. Demonstrate an introductory level understanding of numerical optimisation methods and how they are applied in system design.

5. Make design recommendations for simple mechatronic systems based on dynamics simulation data.
