ECE-610  Modeling of Dynamic Systems    4 Credits

Prerequisites: None
Modeling, simulation, and analysis of multivariable dynamic systems are covered in this course. Increasingly, practitioners are called upon to develop and to analyze realistic mathematic models of electromechanical or other dynamic systems. Approaches to modeling a variety of dynamic physical systems are discussed using examples of dynamic systems taken from a variety of fields. These systems are simulated using appropriate simulation tools. Most of the course is devoted to the analysis of linear systems using now classical techniques: linear algebra, state-space representations, and the state transition matrix. The material on nonlinear systems emphasizes modeling and simulation. Course work in linear algebra and difference and differential equations is a prerequisite for this course.
