One of the demanding steps in the design and development of Mechatronic systems is to develop the initial model to visualize the response of a system. The Bond Graph (BG) method is a graphical approach for the design of multidomain systems. That is ideal for visualizing the essential characteristics of a system. This paper explores the BG method as a modeling approach to develop Mechatronic systems; a case study about the Radar Antenna pedestal drive system is comprehensively addressed. Flow of energy between different functional elements of the system and their causalities are analyzed. Furthermore, model is evaluated through state space equations and simulations are carried out in industrial software tool, such as 20-Sim.

Keywords: Bond Graphs, Mechatronic systems, 20-sim tool.
