EE141 HW 3 Principles of Feedback Control Instructor: Balakrishnan, A.V. Problem Set 3: Solutions 1. Determine the stability of the following transfer functions using the Nyquist criterion. First specify an appropiate contour (as shown in class, line segment in the imaginary axis plus a semicircle in the right half plane), then draw the contour plot (sketch or with MatLab), and finally evaluate the number of encirclements of 0 to find the number of poles in the right half plane. Ψ( s ) = 1 s + a , for a = 1 , a = - 1 , a = - 1 + i . (10 points) Ψ( s ) = 1 s 2 + bs +1 , for b = 1 and b = - 1 . (15 points) The product of the two previous cases (for a = - 1 , b = 1 ) (15 points) F ( s ) = Ψ( s ) 1+ K Ψ( s ) , with Ψ( s ) as defined in the 2 nd case. Determine whether the sta- bility of the system depends on the value of K. Verify your answer by calculating the roots of the polynomials involved.(20 points) Hint: Follow the solution to Ψ( s ) = 1 s +1 and Ψ( s ) = 1 s - 1 and their contour plots. Solution: For a, b and c it is enough to pick a semicircle of radius R = 2 to cover all the poles of our transfer function.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
