Unformatted text preview: 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....
