1.1 INTRODUCTION
A system is defined as a combination of components (elements) that act
together to perform a certain objective. System dynamics deal with:
the mathematical modeling of dynamic systems and
response analyses of such systems with a view toward understanding
the dynamic nature of each system and improving the system's
performance.
Static Systems have an output response to an input that does not change
with time.
Dynamic Systems have a response to an input that is not instantaneously
proportional to the input or disturbance and that may continue after the
input is held constant. Dynamic systems can respond to input signals,
disturbance signals, or initial conditions.
