## ENGN3331 — System Dynamics

code: ENGN3331 System Dynamics 6 System dynamics is the study of the response of engineering systems with changing time. The concepts learned in this unit can be used in a number of engineering disciplines including mechatronics, and in particular robotics, mechanical, electrical, aerospace and marine engineering, manufacturing and biomedical engineering. The emphasis of this course will be on the analytical and numerical tools of multi-particle systems, rigid body dynamics, and electromechanical systems. The topics covered include direct (Newton-Euler) and indirect (Euler-Lagrange) methods for modelling and analysing kinematics and dynamics problems from various examples using differential equations, and numerical approximation of linear or nonlinear dynamical equations. https://programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/course/ENGN3331 Demonstrate systematic understanding of system dynamics problems from various engineering domains.Solve multi-particle and rigid body dynamics problems using the Newton-Euler approach.Derive the equations of motion of mechanical, electrical and simple electromechanical systems using the Euler-Lagrange approach.Apply dynamic response analysis of mechanical or electrical oscillators to perform basic system identification.Analyse the properties of linear or nonlinear dynamic equations through computer simulation and make design recommendations based on dynamics simulation data.
