This course gives the students an introduction to some of the advanced features of GENESIS. Students will learn how to use GENESIS for frequency response optimization, composite optimization, and utilizing user supplied subroutines. Along with these topics, the beta method and the use of superelements are discussed. During the class, students are exposed to industrial applications and examples.
