Leader: B Shirinzadeh


Malaysia First semester 2007 (Day)


Development of linear mathematical models for mechanical, electrical, thermal and fluid pressure devices and systems. Equation sets, transfer functions, block diagrams, signal flow graphs, and state-variable equations. Solution of models to provide predictions of response. Classical, Laplace transform, matrix, and computer methods of solution. Assessing the quality of response; stability, speed and shape. Achieving desired response. Frequency response. Non-linearities and their effects on system response. Discrete-time models and their solutions. A self-directed learning component completes the unit.
