Modelling and analysis of dynamical systems
5 credits
30.0 h + 22.5 h
Delvenne Jean-Charles coordinator; Dochain Denis (compensates Delvenne Jean-Charles); Dochain Denis;
Basic calculus and linear algebra, such as taught in LFSAB1101 (Mathématiques I) et LFSAB1102 (Mathématiques II)
Main themes
First part : presentation of the modelling principles and methods in various areas of engineering sciences : electricity, mechanics, chemical and biochemical processes, environment. Second part : presentation of the major methods for the analysis of the structural properties of state space models : state transformations, equilibria, stability and attractors, controllability, singular perturbations.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :


Learning outcomes:

  • AA1 : 1,2,3
  • AA4 : 1,2,3,4  
  • AA5 : 2,3,5,6       

More specifically, at the end of the course the student:

  • will be aware of the unifying character of the state space model concept in engineering sciences.
  • will be able to model a wide span of situations encountered in diverse engineering sciences
  • will be able to analyze the properties of those dynamical systems defined on a state space

Transversal learning outcomes:

  • Using Matlab and Simulink for the modelling and simulation of dynamical systems.
