In this paper we are interested in introducing the notion of topological collections and transformations for the modeling of mechatronic systems by applying the MGS language (General Modeling System). This approach provides a generic local model that optimizes the global behavior by separating the topology and the physics of the studied system. For this purpose, the MGS language is implied in the case of 2D truss structure. Since a good argument is observed, this approach can be generalized for modeling more complex systems (mechatronic systems). © 2012 IEEE. Source

Finding a basis of unification for the modeling of mechatronic systems is the search subject of several works. This paper is a part of a general research designed to the application of topology as a new approach for the modeling of mechatronic systems. Particularly, the modeling of a one stage spur gear transmission using a topological approach is tackled. This approach is based on the concepts of topological collections and transformations and implemented using the MGS (modeling of general systems) language. The topological collections are used to specify the interconnection laws of the one stage spur gear transmission and the transformations are used to specify the local behavior laws of its different components. In order to validate this approach, simulation results are presented and compared with those obtained with MODELICA language using Dymola solver. Since good results are achieved, this approach might be used as a basis of unification for the modeling of mechatronic systems. ©Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2014 Source

In this study, a new topological approach for the modelling of mecatronic systems is presented. This approach offers the opportunity to separate the behaviour laws (physics) and the interconnection laws (topology) at local level. Then, it can be used as a unification basis for the modelling of the different fields of Mecatronics. This approach is based on the notion of topological collections and transformations and applied using the MGS language (Modelling of General Systems). The emphasis is placed on the application of this approach to the piezoelectric structures (Multi layer piezoelectric stack and piezoelectric truss structure). To validate this approach, simulation results are presented and compared with those obtained by the finite element analysis ANSYS software. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. Source

The present work tackled the modeling of frame structures using a topological approach based on the concepts of topological collections and transformations. The topological collections are used to specify the interconnection law between the frame structures and the transformations that are used to describe their behavior. As a language allowing the application of this approach, we applied the MGS (Modeling of General System) language. To validate this approach, we studied the case of two- and three-dimensional frame structures. Then, the results obtained using the MGS language are presented and compared to those obtained by the structural calculation software by the finite-element method RDM6. For both studied cases, we find that the results obtained by MGS language based on the notions of topological collections and transformations and those obtained by the RDM6 software based on the finite element method are very close, which validates our approach. Using this topological approach, any structure can be characterized by local relations between its elements, thus making it possible to dissociate its topology and its physics. Indeed, in our topological approach, we separately define the topology of the studied frame structure and the local behavior law as well as the equilibrium equations of its various components. Therefore, this topological approach might be generalized to model complex systems which can be considered as a set of local elements linked by a neighborhood relationship. © 2014 Académie des sciences.

This paper presents an analytical study of a simple mechatronic system, composed of an isotropic plate and an electric motor which excites dynamically the structure. The mathematical model is developed using an analytical method based on the Navier approach with the double Fourier series. This method allows determining the influence of various parameters and architectures on the response of the plate. This method can be used for the preliminary design of a mechatronic system, to perform fast and accurate evaluation of the mechatronic design. © 2014 IEEE. Source
