Flight Control Systems Test #1 Dr. Bishop - Spring 2008 Closed-book; 75 minutes 1. (33pts) Consider the control system shown in Figure 1. (a) List two advantages of closed-loop feedback. List one disadvantage of closed-loop feedback. (b) Compute the tracking error E ( s ) = Y ( s ) - R ( s ). (c) Determine the closed-loop characteristic equation. (d) Find the ranges of K P , K D , K I and τ for closed-loop stability. (e) Determine values for K P , K D , and K I so that the steady-state track- ing error to a unit ramp disturbance T d ( s ) is less than 0.1 when τ = 1. + Y ( s ) - R ( s ) Process Controller E a ( s ) 1 s ( s + τ29 T d ( s ) K p + K I s + + + N ( s ) K D s + Figure 1: Block Diagram for Problem 1. 2.

Explain your answer. (b) Compute the dominant poles of the closed-loop system. (c) Do you think that the closed-loop system behaves exactly like a second-order system (no zeros and only two poles)? Why or why not? (d) Sketch the pole-zero map of the closed-loop system. Indicate on the pole-zero map how you would move the dominant poles if you needed a shorter settling time without changing the percent overshoot.
