DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module
To introduce students to mathematical models of engineering systems. To expose them to standard methods of systems analysis using transform methods in both continuous and discrete variable form.To introduce them to the concepts of feedback and stability, and standard control concepts via a detailed analysis of proportional, integral and derivative controls for first and second order systems.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)
Note: List A comprises core outcomes that will be covered fully in lectures and must be achieved by all students to meet the minimum university requirement for progression. List B comprises outcomes that are EITHER more difficult to achieve OR are to be achieved by private study (or both). All outcomes will be assessed, and coverage of List B outcomes is essential for both BEng and MEng students. A: THRESHOLD LEVEL System modelling. Motivational examples of real physical systems and their behaviour (sourced by student experience), spring mass damper, RLC networks, heated reservoir, liquid tanks with capillary pipes. Input/output relationships, the lumped parameter element concept, linearity, constant and time varying, reciprocity, non-linearity. Linear time-invariant reciprocal lumped parameter, (LT) approximations to real elements. Storage elements, dissipative elements. Approximations to real first and second order systems by building up connected networks of LT elements, need for extra system elements (signed summer, constant coefficient multiplier). Description of network as single system block with single input, single output. Derivation of system differential equation. System order and relationship to number of storage elements and physical link to number of initial conditions. Coupled systems, 3rd order and above, multi-input, multi-output systems. B: GOOD TO EXCELLENT System modelling. Direct derivation of system differential equation from first principles. Time-varying, non-reciprocal and non-linear elements and systems incorporating them, dependence of non-linear system behaviour on initial conditions. Linearisation techniques. Vector and matrix description of multi-input multi-output systems, introduction to distributed systems.
