EE 3051B - Dynamic Systems

4 lecture hours 0 lab hours 4 credits
Course Description
This course introduces modeling and analysis techniques of the major types of dynamic engineering systems: mechanical translational, mechanical rotational, thermal, electromechanical, fluid, and operational amplifier systems. Appropriate methods for analytically solving system differential equations are reviewed. (prereq: EE 3002B  or EE 2070 , PH 113  or PH 2011 ) (coreq: MA 383 )
