ECE 554 - Dynamic System Reliability

Semesters Offered

Official Description

Reliability and dynamic performance evaluation for large-scale and complex systems; building on system-theoretic modeling, analysis, and design techniques. Design methods for reliability including architecture design and filter-based fault detection and isolation. Analytical methods for optimal redundancy allocation, sensitivity analysis methods for iterative system design, and other techniques for design optimization. Mechatronic systems used in aircraft and automotive, power electronic systems, and electrical power systems are examples of applications discussed. Course Information: Same as ME 544. Prerequisite: ECE 313 and ECE 515, or permission of instructor.

Description

There is a wide range of applications in which it is important to include a model of the system dynamics when assessing overall system behavior in the presence of component faults, and therefore reliability. In this regard, this course provides a unified view of reliability and dynamic performance evaluation for large-scale and complex systems, building on system-theoretic modeling, analysis, and design techniques. Design methods for reliability are discussed, including architecture design; and filter-based fault detection and isolation. Techniques for design optimization are discussed, including analytical methods for optimal redundancy allocation, and sensitivity analysis methods for iterative system design. A wide range of application examples are discussed, including mechatronic systems used in aircraft and automotive; power electronics systems, and electric power systems.
