What courses should I take?

Demo Codes:

A Real-Time Hybrid Simulation (RTHS) Demo code
It includes MATLAB codes and Simulink models of an RTHS simulation example designed to help beginners to understand the concept of RTHS and its representation.

Virtual RTHS Sample Using xPC
It provides MATLAB codes and Simulink models to perform a virtual real-time hybrid simulation of a two-story structure with a damper at the first story subjected to an earthquake using two xPC target computers.

A Real-Time Hybrid Simulation Demo Code for a Structure with Base Isolation
It describes the set-up of a simple RTHS simulation with base isolation applied to a single story steel structure. It is accompanied by MATLAB codes and Simulink models with the purpose of helping beginners understand the RTHS concept and the effects of isolation on the response of the structure.

Hybrid Simulation 101: Webinar Series

Anatomy of a Hybrid Simulation / Real-Time Hybrid Simulation
This webinar provides an introduction to the range of methods in this class of experimental techniques, the essential components needed to perform a hybrid simulation, a few recent experiments performed using this method, and a readily available sample code / learning tool is available.

Pseudo-Dynamic Hybrid Simulation
This webinar presents the pseudo-dynamic hybrid simulation methods, which is typically conducted at an extended time scale. The focus of this presentation will be on the overview of the pseudo-dynamic (PsD) hybrid simulations, required components, to run PsD hybrid simulations, commonly used test configurations for executing PsD hybrid simulation, followed by a few example experimental implementations.

Designing a Successful Real-Time Hybrid Simulation
This webinar explains the steps to take for choosing the partitioning to use in RTHS, a fundamental step towards successful RTHS implementation. As a case study, this methodology will be demonstrated using the recent Benchmark control problem for real-time hybrid simulation which has been recently presented to the RTHS community to enable community-wide examination to compare and contrast various methods for the design of a robust RTHS controller.
