Prerequisites: "C-" or better in (ME EN 3220 OR ME EN 3210) AND Full Major status in Mechanical Engineering.
Meets with ME EN 6205. Model and simulate the dynamics of advanced mechatronic systems consisting of a variety of energy domains (mechanical, electrical, magnetic, hydraulic, thermofluidic). Students will learn to use Bond Graph techniques and state space formulation for linear and nonlinear systems. Primary topics include introduction to power and energy variable, constitutive modeling of multi-port energy storage and transducing elements, power flow and causality, and derivation and simulation of state space equations. Hands- on recitation exercises in class allow students to practice modeling techniques on a variety of mechatronic devices. For a final project, students will model and simulate a complex dynamic system.
