SYSTEMS MODELLING

EMS2SYM

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides an introduction to modelling and simulation of multi-domain engineering systems. Students develop modelling skills using software tools, such as MATLAB and Simulink, which are then used to model and investigate engineering systems related to a broad range of real-world engineering systems. Topics include: system identification, estimation, state-space models and properties of systems in time and frequency domains. Application examples may include electro-mechanical mechanisms and systems, fluid and thermal systems, chemical processes, and wave transmission.
