Computer Modeling and Simulation for Engineers

blended course
when 2 August 2021 - 13 August 2021
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 4 EC
fee EUR 270

The course curriculum includes:

- Introduction in Modelica (Dymola, OpenModelica);
- Introduction in MVL (MwStudium, Rand Model Designer).
Introduction in Object-Oriented Modeling is based on two courses «Modeling and Simulation with Modelica for engineers» (prof. Alfonso Urguia, Spain ) and «Rand Model Designer for beginners» (prof. Yuri Senichenkov, Russia) developed for InMotion Project. Modelica and Model Vision Language are object-oriented, equation based modeling languages for modeling and simulation complex dynamical systems. Models of complex dynamical systems are hierarchical, component models with event-driven behavior. Both courses iuclude lectures, practical work and independed work with tools for visual modeling.


- Isolated models based on differential and difference equation / lectures;
- Simple dynamical systems / practical workshop;
- Hybrid system and State Machines / lectures;
- Event-driven behavior: bouncing ball, ideal diod / practical workshop;
- Classes, objects, inheritance, packages and libraries / lectures;
- Components with inputs/outputs («Causal» modeling) / lectures;
- Control systems: PID regulator / practical workshop;
- Components with contacts/flows («Physical» Modeling) / lectures;
- Electrical and Hydraulic component systems / practical workshop.
