Engineering Systems provides a solid introduction to the basic modelling of engineering systems for those students from a low-mathematical and physics background. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this text crosses the traditional subject boundaries within engineering by drawing on examples from several different specializations. Through worked examples, highlighted key points and self-assessment questions, the book explains the basic theory of system modelling and control and applies it to the engineering field. Topics covered include translational and rotational mechanical systems, electrical and electromechanical systems, liquid systems, thermal systems, simulation, transfer functions and the Laplace transform, first, second and higher order systems, feedback and control, and state space models. Ideal for first and second year degree and diploma courses in electronic, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, civil and chemical engineering.
