Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Most disciplines of the engineering profession require a sound understanding of the techniques used in the modelling and control of dynamic, multi-domain physical, and other, systems. The aims of this module are: to introduce techniques and computer tools for modelling, predicting and analysing the behaviour of dynamic systems; and to introduce concepts, principles and techniques employed in classical methods of single loop feedback control system design.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: Understand procedures for developing physically based mathematical models of physical systems, and related analytical and numerical methods for predicting their behaviour; Understand the concepts and techniques used in analysing the behaviour of open loop physical systems, and in the design of feedback control systems; Use computational tools in the modelling, simulation and analysis of engineering systems; Apply appropriate theoretical and practical methods to the analysis and solution of engineering problems.

Timetabled teaching activities

Autumn. This module includes 30 hours of lectures. Required self-study: 120 hours
