Module description
The learning objectives of Module 6 are that students:
  • Understand the dynamic behavior of physical systems
  • Are able to model, analyze, and simulate the dynamic behavior of physical systems irrespective of the physical domains they belong to
  • Get experienced designing feed-back control of linear/linearized dynamic systems
  • Learn to work in a scientific way, e.g. by comparing calculations, simulations and measurements
  • Develop an academic attitude towards systematically gaining insights and debugging systems
Module 6 focuses on the analysis, modeling, simulation, and control of dynamic systems. The topics covered by Module 6 are:
  • Port-based modeling and bond graph representation of dynamic systems in various physical domains
  • Model transformation, from a domain-specific, ideal physical model, via a bond-graph to differential equations, block diagrams or signal flow graph, vice versa
  • Numerical simulations methods and numerical solution verification of the models
  • Energy-based analysis of multiports
  • Using a software simulation package (20sim, Controllab Products B.V. The Netherlands)
  • Representation and analysis of dynamic systems in the s-domain: root locus
  • Analysis of dynamic systems in frequency domain: Bode plots, Nyquist plots
  • Synthesis of feed-forward and state-feedback: PID controller, lead and lag networks
  • Feed-back control to reduce the sensitivity of a dynamic system for disturbances and parameter variations
  • Stability and sensitivity analysis
