Computational model of a rotary system with discontinuous elements

    Research output: ThesisMaster's Thesis


    Discontinuous dynamical systems have complex behaviour patterns, due tothe discontinuous or switching elements in the system. These dynamical be-haviours have generally been well investigated within different frameworks.However, there are other ways of looking at these systems which can givevaluable insights for less well understood problems. Hybrid dynamical sys-tems is a framework which is useful for many engineering systems, and isinvestigated in this project. The aim is to model a particular system compu-tationally by means of hybrid automata-based models. Different computerprograms and simulation packages are used in order to determine how the hy-brid dynamical system interpretation of the problem relates to the originaldiscontinuous system, and to understand the limitations of computationalmodels.
