# Differential Equations in Electrical Engineering

FEKT-MPA-DREAcad. year: 2023/2024

This course is devoted to some important parts of differential equations - ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations which were not explained in the previous bachelor course. From the area of ordinary differential equations we mean e.g. so called exact equation which is a general type of equations representing large family of equations. Attention will be paid to extension of knowledge concerning linear systems including autonomous systems. The method of matrix exponential is applied to solutions of systems with constant coefficients. From the point of utilization, a large family of differential equations is important. Let us mention e.g. so called Bessel's or Laplace equations. One of the main notions in applications of differential equations is the notion of stability, which is included in the course. Several methods for detection of stability are discussed, for systems with constant coefficients, e.g. Hurwitz's criterion and Michailov's criterion. Well-known method of Lyapunov functions, being the main method in stability theory, is discussed as well. Full classification of planar linear systems with constant coefficients is given in phase space. In the course is frequently used the matrix method and a lot of results are given in terms of matrices. Partial differential equations serve very often as mathematical models of technical and engineering phenomena. Except others applications of basic methods of solutions (Fourier method, D'Alembert method) will be applied to solving wave equation, heat equation and Laplace equation. Computer exercises focuse attention to master modern mathematical software for solving various classes of differential equations.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

The final evaluation (examination) depends on assigned points (0 points is minimum, 100 points is maximum), 30 points is maximum points which can be assigned during exercises. Final examination is in written form and is estimated

as follows: 0- points is minimum, 70 points is maximum.

The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year. Necessary conditions for course-unit credit are - regular attendance, nonzero assessment of half-semester written test and successful final written test.

Aims
