Who's This Guy Laplace and What's "S" Equal to Anyway? A Painless Exploration of Dynamic Systems
David Wilson, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand
In this webinar we discuss the use of Laplace transform in undergraduate engineering courses and how MATLAB and Simulink are used to build dynamic systems. We highlight some interesting features of dynamic systems that stimulate students’ curiosity in ways that partial fractions don’t. These include unstable zeros, systems with nonlinearities such as relay feedback, and the usefulness of the frequency response in system identification.
