Gernaey 19 October 2009 28150 Learning objectives • At the end of this lesson you should be able to: – Derive closed-loop transfer functions based on a given block diagram – Investigate the stability of a closed-loop system with a feedback loop based on the roots of the characteristic equation / the Routh stability criterion – Predict the shape of the output of the closed loop system based on the position of the poles in the complex plane (root locus) 19 October 2009 28150 Outline • Block diagrams • Closed-loop transfer functions • Closed-loop responses • Stability of closed-loop control systems • Root locus diagrams 19 October 2009 28150 Outline • Block diagrams • Closed-loop transfer functions • Closed-loop responses • Stability of closed-loop control systems • Root locus diagrams 19 October 2009 28150 Blending tank example ( ) ( ) x V w x x V w dt dx- ⋅ ⋅ +- ⋅ ⋅ = 1 2 1 1 ρ ρ x 1 is the disturbance; For constant feed flow, and for x 1 < x << 1 After switching to deviation variables: 1 w w ≈ x w w x w dt dx V ⋅- + ⋅ = ⋅ ⋅ 2 1 ρ x w w x dt x d w V ′- ′ + ′ = ′ ⋅ ⋅ 2 1 1 ρ 19 October 2009 28150 Blending tank example K w = 1 τ ρ = ⋅ w V Substitution: Taking Laplace transforms of both sides: The following transfer functions can be defined: Linear systems! x w K x dt x d ′- ′ ⋅ + ′ = ′ ⋅ 2 1 τ ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) s W K s X s X s 2 1 1 ′ ⋅ + ′ = ′ ⋅ + ⋅ τ ( ) ( ) ( ) s W s K s X s s X 2 1 1 1 1 ′ ⋅ + ⋅ + ′ ⋅ + ⋅ = ′ τ τ ( ) ( ) ( ) 1 1 1 1 + ⋅ = = ′ ′ s s G s X s X τ ( ) ( ) ( ) 1 2 2 + ⋅ = = ′ ′ s K s G s W s X τ 2 19 October 2009 28150 Process TF: Blending tank example G 2 (s) G 1 (s) X’ 1 (s) + + W’ 2 (s) X’(s) X’ u (s) X’ d (s) G p G d D + + U Y Y u Y d Block diagram: general notation !
