Bond graphs have become a part of undergraduate and postgraduate curricula at technological and engineering institutes. Many industries, organizations, universities, and academic institutions have included bond graphs in their research, development, and design activities. In recent years, the range of applications of bond graphs has enhanced owing to sustained research in this field.
Bond Graph in Modeling, Simulation and Fault Identification is an outcome of the authors' teaching System-modeling, Dynamics and Control through bond graphs for the last 15 years. It is organized into 16 chapters and is narrative in style to make it easily comprehensible to students. Each chapter is appended with a set of problems divided into two groups: problems to be solved by students for usual practice and project-type problems.
