Each person must submit their own Part (a) but you should submit Part (b) as a group. Please indicate the name(s) of your teammate(s). Topics : Multidisciplinary analysis, problem formulation, modeling and simulation, system decomposition Part (a) (a1) Motivation Summarize in 5-10 sentences why you decided to take this class. What do you expect to learn? How does this knowledge fit in with your career or research plans? (a2) Chapter 1 – Principles of Optimal Design In Sections 1.1 and 1.2 of Principles of Optimal Design (POD), the authors discuss hierarchical levels in system definition and hierarchical system decomposition . To answer the questions below, consider one of the following engineering systems: a wind turbine power system, a cable stayed bridge, a plug-in-hybrid electric car, or a submarine. (a2-1) Describe the system boundary that you would choose in setting up a model for your system. What are the inputs and outputs that cross this boundary and characterize your system?
