Written by a professor with extensive teaching experience, System Dynamics and Control with Bond Graph Modeling treats system dynamics from a bond graph perspective. Using an approach that combines bond graph concepts and traditional approaches, the author presents an integrated approach to system dynamics and automatic controls.
The textbook guides students from the process of modeling using bond graphs, through dynamic systems analysis in the time and frequency domains, to classical and state-space controller design methods. Each chapter contains worked examples, review exercises, problems that assess students' grasp of concepts, and open-ended "challenges" that bring in real-world engineering practices. It also includes innovative vodcasts and animated examples, to motivate student learners and introduce new learning technologies.
<b>An insightful presentation of the key concepts, paradigms, and applications of modeling and simulation</b> <p> Modeling and simulation has become an integral part of research and development across many fields of study, having evolved from a tool to a discipline in less than two decades. <i>Modeling and Simulation Fundamentals</i> offers a comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the topic and includes definitions, paradigms, and applications to equip readers with the skills needed to work successfully as developers and users of modeling and simulation. <p> Featuring contributions written by leading experts in the field, the book's fluid presentation builds from topic to topic and provides the foundation and theoretical underpinnings of modeling and simulation. First, an introduction to the topic is presented, including related terminology, examples of model development, and various domains of modeling and simulation. Subsequent chapters develop the necessary mathematical background needed to understand modeling and simulation topics, model types, and the importance of visualization. In addition, Monte Carlo simulation, continuous simulation, and discrete event simulation are thoroughly discussed, all of which are significant to a complete understanding of modeling and simulation. The book also features chapters that outline sophisticated methodologies, verification and validation, and the importance of interoperability. A related FTP site features color representations of the book's numerous figures. <p> <i>Modeling and Simulation Fundamentals</i> encompasses a comprehensive study of the discipline and is an excellent book for modeling and simulation courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the fields of computational statistics, engineering, and computer science who use statistical modeling techniques.
An introduction to SPICE-oriented semiconductor device modeling. The SPICE program allows engineers to simulate both individual devices and electronic circuits, performing a large number of different analyses needed for tasks such as verification of circuit designs and prediction of circuit performance.
Combines two subjects -- SPICE simulation and device modeling -- which have been dealt with separately in the past, but are interdependent on each other.
