ME 375 HOMEWORK 11 Spring 2009 Out: Wed., April 15 Due: Wed., April 22 PROBLEM 1 (35%) In many chemical processes the temperature in a tank has to be maintained within a good degree of accuracy. The block diagram of an open-loop temperature-control system is shown in Fig. (a) and that of a closed-loop system in Fig. (b). Assume that the nominal value of K is 1 for both cases. Fig. 2(a) Open-loop temperature-control system. Fig. 2(b) Closed-loop temperature-control system For each system: a. Determine and sketch the variation of θ (in degrees C) with time t (in seconds) if r(t) is a unit step and the disturbance d(t) is zero. b. Determine the steady-state temperature for a unit step reference input when the disturbance d(t) is zero c. What time must elapse before the temperature reaches 63.2 percent of its final value with d(t) = 0? Normalized temperature θ (t) Temperature sensor d(t) + + Heating System Reference temperature r(t) K 11 0 s + Normalized temperature θ (t) Reference temperature r(t) Heating system Amplifier + a K1 0 0 = K 0 s + T = + + d(t)
