Unformatted text preview: tput, Y(s). For the controller to achieve good disturbance rejection, it is obvious that ε(s) 2 of 7 Copyright 2002 Sensitivity Functions should be made as small as possible by an appropriate design for the controller, Gc ( s) . In particular, ε(s) = 0 if perfect control is achievable. However, most physical systems are ‘strictly proper’. In terms of their transfer-function representation, this means that the denominator of the transfer function is always of higher order than the numerator. Thus, lim Gc ( s) G p ( s) = 0 s→∞ In the frequency domain, this becomes lim Gc ( jω )G p ( jω ) = 0 ω →∞ Hence, lim ε( jω ) = lim ω →∞ 1 =1 ω →∞ 1 + G ( jω ) G ( jω ) c p Thus, on the one hand, ε( jω ) has to be close to zero for ideal disturbance rejection, while on the other, at high frequencies, ε( jω ) is one! What the results are telling us is that perfect control cannot be achieved over the whole frequency range. Indeed, the analysis shows that perfect control can only be achieved over a small range of frequenc...
