Learning Dynamics and Control Using Remotely Tutored Simulation and Virtual Experiments


  • Herman Mann Czech technical University




The DynLAB project developed by an inter-national consortium aims at motivating young people to engineering study, and at improving engineering training using innovative didactic and technological approaches. The resulting web-based course is supported across the Internet by a software environment including a robust DYNAST simulation engine, publishing and monitoring tools, and a large collection of re-solvable examples including 3D virtual experiments. DYNAST solves nonlinear algebro-differential equations submitted in a textual form. For a system model submitted in a graphical form characterizing the system real configuration DYNAST formulates the underlying equations automatically. It is also capable of providing the system semisymbolic analysis in time- and frequency-domains. Besides this, DYNAST can be also used across the Internet as a modeling toolbox for the MATLAB control-design toolset.
