SMX140 - Dynamic System Modeling and Simulation using SimXpert

Horizontal spacer

This course gives the engineer a basic understanding of the SimXpert Systems and Controls Workspace modeling, simulation, and analysis environment. Students learn to represent an existing dynamic system on screen using predefined modeling blocks and components, empirical table data, and user-defined components. Students learn to calculate stable operating points using the Steady-State Analysis, and are introduced to fixed- and variable-step integration used during simulation. The class also covers linear analyses, including, in part, transfer function calculation, frequency response generation, and root locus analysis.
