Given a desired response,
we can design a system

Method Solution Transfer
Function Partial
Fractions Controls Tracking Error Analytical Spring Proportional Derivative PID Control Types Integral Lag Control Design Tools Laws Experimental Disturbance

Feedback Op-Amp On-Off Laws 2 states (on or off)
Simple, Inexepensive
Lots of Switching
Not fine control Proportional to error
Limited Control
Instability Possible Component Relations Component Relations Increase system type
Eliminates steady state error Predicts
Speeds up system
Noise Tank Cylinder Valve Like PI but not as effective
High pass filter

Low pass filter
Improves speed
Less noise Zc <Pc Zc >Pc Numerator Dynamics Limitations T_cl 2nd order or less
Computationally intensive
Trial and error needed to overcome numerator dynamics Strengths Find multiple gains Zeigler-Nichols Constant 1 Identify dynamic quantities

Instability prediction
Error of system
Value of steady state Error Constants Limitations Unity feedback only
Ess only Strengths No G_cl needed Coupled Systems Hydraulic (Fluid-Mech.) Electric Motors (Elec.-Mech.) Fluid-Thermal Equivalent Systems Complementary Solution 1. Input step, ramp, or impulse
2. Find specifications from graph
3. Put transfer function in standard from
4. Find dynamic quantities Particular Solution Xp Limitations Trial and error method Strengths PID gains from experiment
No model needed Final Solution Method Look at closed loop denominator
# of unstable poles = # of sign changes in first column Free Forced Transient Steady State Root Locus Limitations Requires Matlab (SISOTools) Strengths Find gain, poles, zeros for any constants
No G_cl needed Magnitude Criterion
Angle Criterion SISOTool Dynamic Quantities Example: Sand being loaded into the back of a truck over time Example: A hammer striking a nail MatLab Simulink Software that helps create appropriate control systems Graphical programming that works with matlab
Important uses
Create a ODE to see effect on input
Input a ramp or step into system
Filter inputs
Make different control systems (i.e. on-off, PID) Program that uses written code
Important uses
Solve mathematical equations
Solve ODEs
Solve transfer functions
Making plots
Time Response
Pole Zero Maps
Solve complex systems with multiple inputs Example: Turning on a light Common Denominator Method
Find Common Denominator
Set numerator to B(s)
Match coefficients of power of s
Solve for system Example So what? Solution to ODE gives behavior of system
All solutions can be identified in either form Superposition 1: Steady State and Transient Superposition 2: Free and Forced Combines effects of P, I, and D control Thermal Component Relations Laws Energy Storage Conservation of Energy Heat Transfer Conduction Convection Routh Stability Limitations Stability only

Design system accordingly.
(i.e. Design bridge so this doesn't happen) Pole-Zero Map Vibrations Absorbers Isolators Prevent transmission of vibration from or to object for some frequency range Eliminate vibrations at a given frequency Pick a small mass that vibrates at
