EE 350 CONTINUOUS-TIME LINEAR SYSTEMS ANALYSIS FALL 2008 Laboratory #1: Time Response Characteristics The objectives of the first laboratory are to: Review the representation of passive circuits using ODE models. Utilize MATLAB to find the roots of the characteristic equation, numerically solve ODEs, and determine time-response characteristics. Estimate component values using time response characteristics acquired with MATLAB and the dSPACE data acquisition system. Results from Laboratory #1 are required to complete Problem Set 4. 1 ODE Representation of Passive Circuits The passive circuits in Figure 1 produce an output voltage y ( t ) in response to a driving voltage f ( t ), and may be represented by an ODE of the form Q ( D ) y ( t ) = P ( D ) f ( t ) ( D n + a n - 1 D n - 1 + · · · + a 1 D + a 0 ) y ( t ) = ( b m D m + b m - 1 D m - 1 + · · · + b 1 D + b 0 ) f ( t ) where D k d k dt k is the differential operator, and a i and b i are constant coefficients. The parameter n is the highest derivative of y ( t ) and represents the order of the system. For a circuit, the number of independent energy storage elements determines the system order. The adjective independent specifies that capacitors (inductors) connected in series or parallel count as a single energy storage element.The laboratory instructor will review determination of the polynomials Q ( D ) and P ( D ) using circuit analysis techniques from EE 210 and will help you complete Table 1 for the circuits shown in Figure 1.

2 Simulation and Analysis using a MATLAB M-file This section introduces several MATLAB commands that are useful for studying ODEs and their solutions. The MATLAB command roots determines the roots of the characteristic equation Q ( λ ) = λ n + a n - 1 λ n - 1 + · · · + a 1 λ + a o = 0 . For example, if Q ( D ) = D 3 + 4 D 2 + D - 3 , enter >> Q = [1 , 4 , 1 , - 3]; roots( Q ) and MATLAB will return the roots of Q ( λ ) = 0. Note that the polynomial Q ( D ) is entered as a row vector in MATLAB, where the first element is the coefficient associated with D 3 . The command step determines the unit-step response of a system. For example, suppose we want to determine the unit-step response of a second-order system described by the ODE d 2 y dt 2 + 4 dy dt + 100 y ( t ) = 200 f ( t ) . First represent the ODE as Q ( D ) y ( t ) = P ( D ) f ( t ) , where Q ( D ) = D 2 + 4 D + 100 P ( D ) = 200 . Represent these polynomials in MATLAB as row vectors >> Q = [1 , 4 , 100]; >> P = [200]; The MATLAB command >> step( P, Q ) generates a plot of the unit-step response over a time interval determined by MATLAB. To generate the unit-step response at 200 points over a specified time interval, say 0 t 5, use the commands >> Q = [1 , 4 , 100]; >> P = [200]; >> t = linspace(0 , 5 , 200); >> step( P, Q, t ) You can also save the response to a vector y using >> Q = [1 , 4 , 100]; >> P = [200]; >> t = linspace(0 , 5 , 200); >> y = step( P, Q, t ); MATLAB provides a command, lsim , for determining the zero-state response of a LTI system to an arbitrary input. As an example, the zero-state response of the system

### 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.
