Dynamic Systems Modeling

Dynamic Systems modeling is actually the ancestor of System Dynamics modeling approach. It is used in mechatronic, electrical, chemical, and other technical engineering disciplines as a standard part of the design process. The underlying mathematical model of a dynamic system would consist of a number of state variables and algebraic differential equations of various forms over these variables. In contrast with the System Dynamics, integrated variables here have some “physical” meaning: location, speed, acceleration, pressure, concentration, etc., they are inherently continuous, and are not aggregates of some agents.

Along with System Dynamics, Discrete Event and Agent Based modeling approaches, AnyLogic provides handy tools for Dynamic Systems approach:

Stock Variable - for differential equations.

Dynamic Variable - for formulas.
