'Modelling and Simulation of Engineering Systems' is a course offered in the B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Unit 1

Fundamental Concepts in Mathematical Modelling: Abstraction – linearity and superposition – balance and conservation laws and the system – boundary approach.

Lumped – Element Modeling: Mechanical systems - Translational, rotational. Hydraulic systems. Thermal systems. RLC Electrical Systems.

Modeling of First–order and Second–order Systems: Governing equations for free and forced responses – transient response specifications – experimental determination – Laplace transform. Time Domain, Frequency Domain and State Space.

Unit 2

Frequency response of Linear, Time invariant systems – frequency response of first–order and second–order systems – state space formulations of systems problems relating frequency response to pole location – transient response-poles and frequency response.

Unit 3

Feedback systems: Systems with feedback – block diagrams – properties of feedback systems – relative stability - phase and gain margins.
