Final - MAE143B, Summer II 2008 Name: Student #: September 5, 2008 3:00pm-6:00pm, Center 115 open-book and open-notes final exam use the available space to derive your results, attach extra paper if necessary use of any electronic equipment (calculator, phone, PDA) not allowed during exam 1 Consider the mechanical system depicted on the left with mass m = 1, spring stiffness k = 6, damping d = 5 and a position x ( t ). For this mechanical system we define the input u ( t ) as the force applied to the mass and the output y ( t ) is defined as the acceleration of the mass: u ( t ) = F ( t ) , y ( t ) = ¨ x ( t ) m F ( t ) x ( t ) k d single mass mechanical system 1a Show that the proper (but not strictly proper) transfer function G ( s ) = s 2 s 2 + 5 s + 6 (1) models the dynamics between input u ( s ) and output y ( s ) in the Laplace domain.

1b With G ( s ) given in (1), compute output y ( t ) due to unit step input signal u ( t ). [10pts] 1c Compute a state space model of the dynamic system based on the two-dimensional state vector [ x ( t ) ˙ x ( t )] T . [5pts] 2
2 To improve the speed of the response of the mechanical system, a proportional feedback controller u ( t ) = K p [ r ( t ) y ( t )] , with K p > 0 (2)

### 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.
