Unformatted text preview: ME 132 Fall 2009 Solutions to Homework 3 1. ( 3.3, Problem 3) (a) The time constant will be the same regardless of the input u ( t ). However, for the steady state gain , assume that the input is a constant. As given in the notes, the response of the system to a step input, u ( t ) = u for t 0, is y ( t ) = e at y (0) b a ( 1 e at ) u. If a < 0, then the steadystate output is y = b a u. The time constant, , and the steadystate gain, , are given by = 1 a , = b a . Rearranging these yields a = 1 , b = . (b) The response of the system to the given input is shown in Figure 1. The output y ( t ) always exponentially approaches a value of u ( t ) that is, the input multiplied by the steadystate gain. The rate of the exponential convergence is determined by the time constant, . During each period of one time constant, the output gets 63% closer to the steadystate value. (c) The response of the system to the given input is shown in Figure 2. The response is identical in shape to that of the previous system. This is because this system is the same as the previous system with time compressed (sped up) by a factor of 1000. The new time constant is 1000 times smaller than the old time constant, so the system responds 1000 times faster. Additionally, the input signal is the same except 1000 times faster. Therefore, the behaviour of the system is the same, only 1000 faster. 2. ( 3.3, Problem 4) We will solve this problem both of the ways that the statement suggested.
