Physiological Modeling and Control Systems Lab

Lab Description

​Lab Engineer: Dima Bani Hani

1 Credit hour (3 hrs lab) aims at This lab providing modeling and analysis computerized tools (Berkeley Madonna and SIMULINK) for the study of physiological control systems. The lab is an active learning environment to reinforce selected engineering principles of physiology, emphasizing a quantitative model-oriented approach. Topics include: Systems and modeling, linear systems analysis and Control systems design.



The equipment used in this lab are:

  1. Desktop Computers
  2. Basic Software Packages
  3. (Berkeley Madonna and SIMULINK) 

Lab Experiments:
  • Introduction to the modeling tools of Berkeley Madonna and SIMULINK
  • Respiratory mechanics simulation (Part 1: Breathing Pattern Generator)
  • Respiratory mechanics simulation (Part 2: Artificial Mechanical Ventilation)
  • Respiratory mechanics simulation (Part 3: Respiratory pathology)
  • Cardiovascular mechanics simulation (Part 1: Cardiac wave generator)
  • Cardiovascular mechanics simulation (Part 2: Cardio-pulmonary interactions)
  • Model of Glucose/Insulin balance
  • Steady state and dynamic analysis
  • State-Space model (Blood doping)​
