Problem 1 From table 7.1 in the textbook, the Laplace transform of y(t)=te -t is: t 2 1 Lt e y ( s ) (s 1) ⎡⎤ == ⎣⎦ + (S1.1) Moreover, the Laplace transform of the unit-impulse δ (t) is: [ ] L( t ) u ( s )1 δ= = (S1.2) Since u(t)=0 all the time but at t=t o , assuming that y(t) is in deviation form (i.e. y s =0), the transfer function of the system in exam can be written as follows: 2 y(s) 1 G(s) u(s) (s 1) + (S1.3) Problem 2 Assuming constant density and reactor volume, the overall material balance can be written as follows: 12 ii dh(t) A F(t) F F(t) 8h(t) dt =− (S2.1) As initial condition for equation (S2.1), we chose the steady state value of the hydrostatic pressure h s given by: 2 si s h(0) h F 64 (S2.2) Linearizing the right hand side of equation (S2.1) about the steady state value (S2.2), one obtains: [] [ ] s s s 4h h(t) h −≅ (S2.3) Defining the deviation variables H(t)=h(t)-h s and Q(t)=F i (t)-F s, and considering (S2.3), equation (S2.2) becomes ss Ah h dH(t) H(t) Q(t) 4d t 4 += (S2.4) subject to the following initial condition H(0) 0 = (S2.5)
