Students are able to derive mathematical models of dynamic systems and to simulate and analyze their behavior by using modern simulation tools. They can predict the behavior and know the fundamental physical properties of mechanical, thermal, electrodynamic, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, and understand analogies between these system classes. Students know how to develop, simulate and evaluate mathematical models of dynamic systems by applying systematic modelling rules. They learn how to design dynamic systems and their automatic control.


The lecture teaches basics of systems theory in the scope of technical dynamic systems. The contents cover basic modelling principles, state-space models and stability, fundamental physical behavior of various system classes, observer and controller design. The lecture also gives insight into modern simulation tools, specifically MATLAB/Simulink, and discusses the mathematical background of the underlying numerical solvers. Students learn how to analyze and divide complex systems into properly defined subsystems, and consolidate their knowledge of the basic physical properties of mechanical, thermal, electrodynamic, hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Analogies between these system classes are outlined and exploited to simplify modelling. Recent methods for observing unmeasured states and parameters (soft-sensors) and advanced controller tuning algorithms are discussed and applied, and all theoretical results are substantiated either by simulations of real world processes or by application in laboratory setups.
