System Dynamics and Response – S. Graham Kelly – 1st Edition


As systems become more increasingly interdisciplinary, knowledge of both mechanical and electrical systems has become an asset within the field of . All should have general facility with modeling of dynamic systems and determining their response and it is the objective of this book to provide a framework for that understanding.

The study material is presented in four distinct parts; the mathematical modeling of dynamic systems, the mathematical solution of the equations and integro equations obtained during the modeling process, the response of dynamic systems, and an introduction to feedback and their . An Appendix is provided with a short introduction to MATLAB as it is frequently used within the text as a tool, a programming tool, and a graphical tool. SIMULINK, a MATLAB based and modeling tool, is discussed in chapters where the development of models use either the transfer function or the state-space method.
