ME 451 Control Systems Summer 2008 Midterm Exam 1 Wednesday, June 25, 2008 Answer all questions. Show all your work for full credit. Books and Notes are NOT allowed. One side of a page (handwritten) may be used for reference. You may use any of the handouts. Duration: 50 minutes Department of Mechanical Engineering Michigan State University Problem 1: (20 points) For the block diagram shown below, obtain C(s)/R(s) Problem 2: (30 points) a) For the system given below, the input r( t )=5cos 4 t, is applied at t= 0. Find the steady state system response and the range of t for which the system is in steady state. R(s) C(s) b) The simple electrical circuit shown below consists of a linear inductor with inductance L = 10 henry, a constant source V o = 80 volts, and a non-linear resistor element, across which the voltage drop is V r (i) = 60i + 20i 2 . (The current i is measured in amperes).
