As we saw in lecture 1, the Equation of Motion of a mechanical system is, in general, an Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE). In this lecture, we will remind ourselves how to solve ODEs analytically in the time domain and in Matlab ( i.e. , numerically.) We will consider the following rotational system (plant) of a motor attached to a shaft with viscous and/or Coulomb friction: The motor applies torque T s ( t ) which is zero for t < and increases to a step T at t = 0. The shaft inertia is J while we assume that the motor inertia is negligible. We will also neglect the system compliance. (Justify these assumptions.) As input to the system we consider the torque, while the output is the angular velocity. We will consider three cases for the friction applied by the bearings: (i) viscous friction of coecient f v b (units N m sec); (ii) Coulomb friction of magnitude f c (units N m sec); and (iii) both viscous and Coulomb friction. 1 1. Viscous friction The system equation of motion is d J 1 J + b = T s ( t ) + = T s ( t ) . (1) d t b b This is a linear 1 st order...
