1 Chapter 4 Linearization of Nonlinear Models So far, we have emphasized linear models which can be transformed into TF models. But most physical processes and physical models are nonlinear. - But over a small range of operating conditions, the behavior may be approximately linear. - Conclude : Linear approximations can be useful, especially for purpose of analysis. Approximate linear models can be obtained analytically by a method called “linearization”. It is based on a Taylor Series Expansion of a nonlinear function about a specified operating point.

2 Chapter 4 Consider a nonlinear, dynamic model relating two process variables, u and y : ( 29 , (4-60) dy f y u dt = Perform a Taylor Series Expansion about and and truncate after the first order terms, u u = y y = ( 29 ( 29 , , (4-61) y y f f f u y f u y u y u y o o = + + where and . Note that the partial derivative terms are actually constants because they have been evaluated at the nominal operating point, Substitute (4-61) into (4-60) gives: u u u o = - y y y o = - ( 29 , . u y
