41058 Dynamic Systems and Control A

6cp; 3hpw, on campus, weekly
Requisite(s): 41056 Machines and Mechanisms A OR 48640 Machine Dynamics
Anti-requisite(s): 48660 Dynamics and Control



Mechanical and mechatronic engineers design machines, with complex dynamic behaviour, which must be controlled for reasons of safety and for meeting the machine’s desired performance. In this first of two subjects, students model the behaviour of linear (or approximately linear) dynamic systems that are typically encountered in the practice of mechanical and mechatronic engineering, to gain an understanding of how such systems can be engineered, or have their dynamics altered, to achieve desired outcomes. The concepts and tools discussed in this subject can be used in a wide spectrum of engineering disciplines such as mechanical, mechatronics, manufacturing, and biomedical engineering.
