If you are a student of Engineering (any branch), B.Sc./M.Sc., or Business Management, then this book is for you. It will expose you to a subject evolved at Massacheusettes Institute of Technology, Boston, initiated by the inventor of random access magnetic core memory Germeshausen Professor Jay W. Forrester and demonstrates how to apply the subject into different problem situations. Each case study is a project work undertaken at the graduate or postgraduate level and beyond. Variety of problems from Insurance Sector to Engineering Competence Pool Development to Product Innovation have been tackled to demonstrate the power of System Dynamics. Further, if the subject fascinates you, you may turn out to be a professional modeller, or even carry out research work at the doctoral level. The emphasis of the book is not to teach you the software of System Dynamics simulation such as Vensim®, iThinkTM, STELLATM, MATLAB® Simulink etc., but pass you through the stages of System Dynamics model building and simulation. Once the reader gets tuned to this philosophy of System Dynamics, sky is not the limit, as you can simulate the whole cosmos, provided, you know what are the control parameters!

This unique textbook takes the student from the initial steps in modeling a dynamic system through development of the mathematical models needed for feedback control. The generously-illustrated, student-friendly text focuses on fundamental theoretical development rather than the application of commercial software. Practical details of machine design are included to motivate the non-mathematically inclined student.

This comprehensive text offers a detailed treatment of modelling of components and sub-systems for studying the transient and dynamic stability of large-scale power systems. Beginning with an overview of basic concepts of stability of simple systems, the book is devoted to in-depth coverage of modelling of synchronous machine and its excitation systems and speed governing controllers. Apart from covering the modelling aspects, methods of interfacing component models for the analysis of small-signal stability of power systems are presented in an easy-to-understand manner. The book also offers a study of simulation of transient stability of power systems as well as electromagnetic transients involving synchronous machines. Practical data pertaining to power systems, numerical examples and derivations are interspersed throughout the text to give students practice in applying key concepts. This text serves as a well-knit introduction to Power System Dynamics and is suitable for a one-semester course for the senior-level undergraduate students of electrical engineering and postgraduate students specializing in Power Systems.

System Dynamics for Engineering Students: Concepts and Applications discusses the basic concepts of engineering system dynamics. Engineering system dynamics focus on deriving mathematical models based on simplified physical representations of actual systems, such as mechanical, electrical, fluid, or thermal, and on solving the mathematical models. The resulting solution is utilized in design or analysis before producing and testing the actual system. The book discusses the main aspects of a system dynamics course for engineering students; mechanical, electrical, and fluid and thermal system modeling; the Laplace transform technique; and the transfer function approach. It also covers the state space modeling and solution approach; modeling system dynamics in the frequency domain using the sinusoidal (harmonic) transfer function; and coupled-field dynamic systems. The book is designed to be a one-semester system-dynamics text for upper-level undergraduate students with an emphasis on mechanical, aerospace, or electrical engineering. It is also useful for understanding the design and development of micro- and macro-scale structures, electric and fluidic systems with an introduction to transduction, and numerous simulations using MATLAB and SIMULINK. The first textbook to include a chapter on the important area of coupled-field systems Provides a more balanced treatment of mechanical and electrical systems, making it appealing to both engineering specialties
An important role in the analysis of the system is played by its mathematical model. It is created using the system structure and fundamental physical laws governing the system elements. In the case of complicated systems, ...

The German Research Council (DFG) decided 1987 to establish a nationwide five year research project devoted to dynamics of multibody systems. In this project universities and research centers cooperated with the goal to develop a general pur pose multibody system software package. This concept provides the opportunity to use a modular structure of the software, i.e. different multibody formalisms may be combined with different simulation programmes via standardized interfaces. For the DFG project the database RSYST was chosen using standard FORTRAN 77 and an object oriented multibody system datamodel was defined. The project included • research on the fundamentals of the method of multibody systems, • concepts for new formalisms of dynamical analysis, • development of efficient numerical algorithms and • realization of a powerful software package of multibody systems. These goals required an interdisciplinary cooperation between mathematics, compu ter science, mechanics, and control theory. ix X After a rigorous reviewing process the following research institutions participated in the project (under the responsibility of leading scientists): Technical University of Aachen (Prof. G. Sedlacek) Technical University of Darmstadt (Prof. P. Hagedorn) University of Duisburg M. Hiller) (Prof.
