Abstract/Description:
University of Central Florida College of Engineering Thesis; Real-time digital simulation is a powerful means for engineers and scientists in government, industry, and academia to perform research and training as well as serving as a basis for many commercial applications. Due to the special constraints imposed by digitally simulating continuous systems in real time, however, many of these systems either require costly high-speed components or are unable to provide suitable performance characteristics using affordable computers. This dissertation describes a new technique for the synthesis of numerical integrators specifically designed for the real-time digital simulation of continuous systems. This methodology is based upon the fact that the state derivatives in a simulation model typically have a significantly limited bandwidth. This information is exploited to improve the efficiency of numerical integrators by selecting the coefficients of a general-form integrator such that it approximates an ideal integrator over the limited frequency spectrum of the state derivative.
