This leads to the process of deriving the governing equations for the system. The equations, also called the state–space equations, are a set of coupled ordinary differential equations. These equations are solved numerically (usually). And the solution provides information about system response. 6 A bond graph representation of a permanent magnet DC motor. 7 Flowchart showing the bond graph based modeling process. 4 Software Several commercial software tools use bond graphs to model systems 20Sim, Symbols2000, AMESIM, and CAMP-G are four such tools.

1 1-Port Resistor: Energy Dissipating Device The 1-port resistive element is a power dissipating device, that is, the power that this element receives is lost from the system in the form of heat (most commonly) or in some other form of energy. These elements cannot store energy. 10 shows some examples of these types of devices in different domains. There are three common resistance elements: an electrical resistor, a mechanical damper, and hydraulic flow through a tube where there is pressure loss due to wall roughness.

In a few cases when such data was readily available, I have made use of it. But in many others, I have made it up using engineering judgment. Also, in some example simulations, I have specified units for parameters and in others I have not. In cases where units are not specified, parameters used are still in consistent units; throughout this text I have used SI units only. 1. Choose a mechatronic system or subsystem. Some possible examples are steer-by-wire, autofocus camera, disk drive, scanner, and microwave.
