Modeling and Simulation, TSRT62

Course Information HT1, 2016


The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to the methods and principles used in constructing mathematical models in dynamical systems and in practical applications.

The course will cover model design based on basic physical principles as well as system identification, i.e., modeling based on measured data from sensors. It will also show how to use simulations to investigate the properties of a model.

Course content:

  • General introduction to models and model building: Model types, dimension and scaling, model simplification.
  • System identification: Estimating transient response, spectral estimation, identification of parametric models, identification of nonlinear models, validation.
  • Physical Modeling: Physical principles, bond graphs, models with differential-algebraic equations, object-oriented modeling.
  • Simulations: Choice of methods, stability, accuracy.

    The second edition of the textbook is available only in Swedish, and so is the exercise book. You can buy them at Bokakademin. The notes for the labs can be downloaded here and the computer exercises from the exercise page.

    Notice that in chapter 8 of the course book (Matematiska modeller och bindningsgrafer) only the results in the box on pages 184-85 and 187 are required (without proofs).
