Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Starting from physical principles, the lecture explains how to model electrical and mechanical systems. The development of extensive modeling-libraries is outlined and illustrated by suitable mechatronic systems. The modeling of further physical domains is briefly sketched.
In addition, the lecture concerns the computational aspects of computer simulation. The processing of the modeling language is explained in detail and the most important algorithms for time-integration are presented.
The corresponding exercise sessions offer the opportunity for the participants to gain their own modelling experience, for instance by creating a mechanic modelling library. Finally, the participants are encouraged to develop a real-time simulation of an electric vehicle. A high interest in physics but no additional prerequisites are expected for this lecture. All important fundamentals will be explained in the lecture.
Language: All written documents will be in English. The lectures are held either in German or in English according to the preference of the audience that will be determined in the first lecture.
