This paper presents a graph grammar based automated tool that can generate bond graphs of various systems for dynamic analysis. A generic graph grammar based representation scheme has been developed for different system components and bond graph elements. Using that representation, grammar rules have been developed that enable interpreting a given system and generating bond graph through an algorithmic search process. Besides, the paper also demonstrates the utility of the proposed tool in classrooms to enhance value in bond graph based system dynamics education. The underlying technique, various examples and benefits of this automated tool will be highlighted.
