Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course is aimed to deepen the concepts of dynamic modelling and simulation, and to explain the architecture of the most popular relevant software tools. To be more specific, the course is aimed to provide students with the skills needed to address problems of modeling and simulation of complex engineering systems. The first part will be dedicated to illustrate the causal approach to modeling, on which probably the most widespread simulation tool is based: Simulink. The second part of the course will be devoted to introducing the acausal approach, based on object-oriented programming concepts, languages and tools. In particular, in this second part, the characteristics of the modeling language Modelica will be illustrated, now standard "de facto" for the modular, multi domain modelling. The characteristics of the modelling and simulation environments will be illustrated in reference to some application cases.

Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Lectures will allow students to:

Understand the theory of numerical methods for the solution of systems of ordinary differential equations (ODE).

Model and numerically solve hybrid dynamic models (events).

Understand the basic theory of differential-algebraic equations systems (DAE).

Use an object-oriented modelling language (Modelica) to model complex engineering systems.

Understand symbolic manipulation techniques applied to DAE system in order to derive efficient simulation codes.

Exercises will allow students to:

Build simulation models of complex systems in both causal (Simulink) and acausal (OpenModelica) modelling environments.

Describe and solve hybrid dynamical systems.

Select solver parameters and interpret the results of the simulations in terms of accuracy and computation efficiency.

Modalità di valutazione

The evaluation test will be both practical and oral and it will be divided into two parts. In a first part the student will be asked to develop "from scratch" and simulate the model of a freely chosen dynamic system, in either a causal or in an acausal modelling environment. The complexity of the model, the mastery of the modeling tool and the ability to interpret the results will constitute elements of judgment. In the second part the student will be asked to show his/her knowledge of the theoretical contents of the course, answering theoretical questions or solving simple exercises.
