The student can:
- analyze electrical and mechanical systems by distinguishing the elemental constituting components and relate these elemental components by conservation and continuity.
- implement mathematical models of moderately complicated linear electrical and mechanical systems and determine the response on the basis of the characteristics of the mathematical model.
- apply Laplace transform to solve an ODE with boundary conditions and can relate time domain response to frequency domain response.
- implement a simulation of the response of dynamical systems in both time and frequency domain using software like Matlab.
In the `Dynamical Systems' part, the students will learn how to model dynamic systems with an emphasis on mechanical and electrical systems as a set of coupled differential equations. The analytical solution of these mathematical models in time and frequency domain is done through analysis of the input-output equation and the transfer function by using Laplace transformations. The State model is introduced as a more generic approach to solve Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) systems.
