Design, Modelling and Simulation of Mechatronic Systems
Included in Study
PhD Programme in Engineering and Science
After the course, the students shall be able to understand the mechatronic design approach, where the different disciplines involved are developed using concurrent product development. Furthermore, the students will know about new directions in the mechatronics engineering development and new technologies.
The learning outcome of the modelling and simulation part of the course is an overview of the state-of-the-art within modelling of mechatronic systems. The successful candidate will know the governing equations for steady-state and dynamic modelling of the basic electronic, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical sub-systems of a mechatronic system. Also, the successful candidate will be capable of combining these equations into models of closed-loop controlled mechatronic systems.
The course consists of two parts: Design Methodology in Mechatronics (2 credits) and Modelling and Simulation of Mechatronic Systems (3 credits).
Design Methodology in Mechatronics
The following key elements of mechatronics are presented:
physical systems modelling
sensors and actuators
signals and systems
computers and logic systems
software and data acquisition
Modelling and Simulation of Mechatronic Systems
The basic steady-state and dynamic modelling of
are presented. The governing equations as well as techniques for linearization and numerical solutions are discussed. Techniques for combining these fundamental models into models of closed-loop controlled mechatronic systems are presented and introduced via a number of applications derived from
electrical and hydraulic servo drives
wind turbine drive trains
3D robot milling
offshore heave compensation
mobile machinery propulsion and implement handling
