EE 678 Linear and NonLinear Systems Modeling and Simulation


3 cr.


Graduate Standing.

Course Description

In this course students learn the fundamentals of modeling mechanical, electrical and electromechanical systems. MATLAB and Simulink will be used to model linear and nonlinear systems. Simulink is a multi-domain environment for modeling complex systems and is used nationally and internationally by many companies. A variety of techniques including frequency domain and state space methods will be utilized to model mechanical and electromechanical systems. Many different feedback control techniques including gain scheduling will be studied to modify and improve systems performance and stability. This course will be offered as an on line/  optional in class course. The course will count towards one of the required EE courses for the Mechatronics concentration.
