Grading: Homework = 30%, Midterm #1 = 35% and Midterm #2 = 35%. These weights are approximate; the instructor reserves the right to change them later, as needed (changes will always be to the betterment of the student's final grade).
Prerequisites: Exposure to linear algebra and matrices. You should have seen the following topics: matrices and vectors, (introductory) linear algebra and differential equations. Some preliminary knowledge of MATLAB would be beneficial but not required. Deeper appreciation for the course would be derived from having taken CEE571: Linear System Theory.
Catalog description: This course is an introductory course in the fundamentals of dynamics system theory applied to infrastructure systems including applications in modeling, motoring and controlling structural, transportation, hydraulic, and electrical grid systems. Linear systems are emphasized including continuous-time and discrete-time systems but elementary concepts in nonlinear systems are also presented. Additional topics include feedback control theory, system identification, and cyber-physical system architectures.
