MEE 370: Modeling, Analysis and Control of Mechanical Systems


Course description: This course introduces the students to a unified approach to abstracting real mechanical, thermal and hydraulic systems into proper models to meet design and control system objectives. Topics include modeling of lumped mechanical, thermal and fluid systems, Laplace transforms and transfer function representation, free and forced response of second order linear time-invariant systems, frequency response, actuators and sensors, compensation and design of feedback control systems with emphasis on mechanical engineering applications.

Instructor:   Prof. Mohsen Shahinpoor, 219A Boardman Hall, 581-2143

Class Hours:   MWF 1:10-2:00 in Barrows 130.

Office Hours:  MWF 10:00-11:00 AM

Prerequisites:  MAT 258, ECE 209, MEE 270

Text:                System Dynamics, Fourth Edition by Ogata

Technical software: MATLAB Student Version Release 14 (includes Matlab v.7 and Simulink). Need to also purchase the Control System Toolbox (at a later date).
