Transfer Functions Transfer function is defined as: Transfer function = L { output variable } L { input variable } initial conditions are zero For example, find the transfer function E o ( s ) E i ( s ) of an RC circuit We shall use the transfer function to determine the stability and response of the system.

Block Diagrams & Signal-Flow Graphs ECE382 1 / 31 Block Diagrams A block diagram of a system is a graphical representation of a physical system, illustrating the functional relationship among its components Each functional block is connected by arrows which show the direction of signal flow Each block contains information concerning dynamic behavior, but it does not contain any information about the physical structure of the system A block diagram is NOT unique.

Closed-Loop Transfer Function Determine the closed-loop transfer function : C ( s ) R ( s ) C ( s ) E ( s ) = G ( s ) or C ( s ) = G ( s ) E ( s ) (1) and E ( s ) = R ( s ) H ( s ) C ( s ) (2) Substituting Eq. (2) into Eq. (1): C ( s ) = G ( s ) R ( s ) G ( s ) H ( s ) C ( s ) or C ( s )[ 1 + G ( s ) H ( s )] = G ( s ) R ( s ) C ( s ) R ( s ) = G ( s ) 1 + G ( s ) H ( s ) (3) C. S.

Block Diagrams & Signal-Flow Graphs ECE382 6 / 31 Closed-loop System with Disturbance (I) Two inputs : R ( s ) and D ( s ) One output : C ( s ) Two transfer functions : T 1 ( s ) = C 1 ( s ) R ( s ) D ( s )= 0 ; T 2 ( s ) = C 2 ( s ) D ( s ) R ( s )= 0 C 1 ( s ) R ( s ) D ( s )= 0 = G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) 1 + G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) H ( s ) C 2 ( s ) D ( s ) R ( s )= 0 = G 2 ( s ) 1 + G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) H ( s ) Output, C ( s ) C ( s ) = C 1 ( s ) + C 2 ( s ) = T 1 ( s ) R ( s ) + T 2 ( s ) D ( s ) C.

Block Diagrams & Signal-Flow Graphs ECE382 7 / 31 Closed-loop System with Disturbance (II) C ( s ) = C 1 ( s ) + C 2 ( s ) = T 1 ( s ) R ( s ) + T 2 ( s ) D ( s ) = G 2 ( s ) 1 + G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) H ( s ) [ G 1 ( s ) R ( s ) + D ( s )] If | G 1 ( s ) H ( s ) | 1 and | G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) H ( s ) | 1, then C 2 ( s ) D ( s ) R ( s )= 0 G 2 ( s ) G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) H ( s ) 1 G 1 ( s ) H ( s ) = 0 This is the advantage of a feedback control system. C 1 ( s ) R ( s ) D ( s )= 0 G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) H ( s ) 1 H ( s ) Hence, it is independent of G 1 ( s ) G 2 ( s ) . If H ( s ) 1, then C 1 ( s ) = R ( s ) ; we have output tracks the input.

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
