## Nonlinear Analytical Models:

State-space Models
Input-Output Models

Model linearization
Real systems are nonlinear
They are represented by nonlinear analytical models
Common techniques (e.g., response analysis, frequency
domain analysis, eigenvalue problem analysis, simulation,
control) use linear models
Method: Linearize each nonlinear term (1st order Taylor
series approximation)
Note: A nonlinear term may be a function of more than one
independent variable.

Graphical Illustration
Nonlinear function f(x) of a single independent variable x

## Linearization About an Operating Point

Steps:
1. Express each nonlinear term at an operating point (or, reference condition
2. Select (small) increments of the independent variables from the operating
condition
3. Express Taylor series expansion of nonlinear term about operating point
4. Retain O(1) terms
Note: We need the first-derivatives (local slopes) at operating condition
Example: A nonlinear function f(x,y) of two independent variables x and y

f ( xo , yo )
f ( xo , yo )
f ( x, y ) f ( xo , yo )

Note: ( ) or ( )o denotes operating condition

period of interest, A and B are constant
Note 2: A linear model is acceptable when the resulting error is small
(typically when response variations about operating point are small
compared to operating range).

is assumed constant but usually varies with speed
There is some flexibility in the shaft (coupling) between gear and drive motor

Electro-Mechanical Coupling
Mechanical damping constant bm comes from bearing
friction and other mechanical sources
Electrical damping constant b comes from the
electromagnetic interactions in the motor
The two occur together (and should be treated
together, in model analysis, simulation, design,
control, etc.).
E.g., whether the response is underdamped or
overdamped depends on the sum bm +b and not the
individual components
Electro-mechanical coupling

## Main Concepts Illustrated in

Example 1
1. Electro-mechanical coupling in damping
2. Mechanical damping and electrical damping should be treated
together. System behavior depends on the combined effect a
case for integrated analysis, simulation, design, control, etc.)
3. System nonlinearity can come from nonlinear coupling of
inputs and state variables
4. A state variable cannot change instantaneously
5. When an input changes instantaneously, the highest derivative
of the response changes with it (instantaneously); and the
lower derivatives dont change.
Note: These lower derivatives may be taken as state variables.

Example 2

## A Wood Cutting Machine

Jm = axial moment of inertia of motor rotor
bm = equivalent viscous damping constant of motor bearings
k = torsional stiffness of flexible shaft; Jc = axial moment of inertia of cutter blade
bc = equivalent viscous damping constant of cutter bearings; Tm = magnetic torque of motor

c =

cutter speed

## TL = load torque on cutter from workpiece (wood).

Note: In comparison with flexible shaft, coupling unit is rigid; shafts are light
Cutting load TL c c c
Constant parameter c depends on depth of cut and material properties of workpiece

spring two state variables: velocity for inertia and
position (which gives spring force) for nonlinear
spring. Compare with simple pendulum (needs two
state variables: velocity and position corresponding to
the nonlinear spring of gravitational pull) and freefalling mass under gravity (needs only one state
variable: velocity; gravity appears as a constant
external force, not a nonlinear spring).
2. Time-varying operating state.
3. Linearization concepts, as illustrated in Example 3

Graphical Solution to
Linearization:
Use of Experimental Operating
Curves

## Graphical Linearization Using

Experimental Characteristic Curves
1. Linearization is done by finding the local slopes
(derivatives with respect to the independent
variables) of experimental characteristic curves
2. As a matter of experimental feasibility, the curves are
determined by varying one variable at a time
(keeping the other variables constant at some
operating condition)
3. On a two-axis coordinate frame, only two such
variables can be represented

Graphical Linearization
(Two-variable Case)
1. Keep one variable constant at some operating condition and
vary the other variable in steps
2. Plot the data curve
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 by changing the operating condition of
the first variable by a small step. Obtain a series of
characteristic curves in this manner
4. Linearization: For a specific operating condition, find the
slope of the curve passing through it (i.e., with the first
variable kept constant); Also find the vertical increment of two
adjacent curves enclosing the operating point (i.e., with the
second variable is kept constant)
5. Slopes with respect to the two independent variables are
obtained from the two values in Step 4.

Linearization Steps
1. Keep one variable constant at some operating condition and
vary the other variable in steps
2. Repeat for an increment of the variable that was kept constant
3. Plot the successive operating curves obtained in this manner
4. Determine the local slopes at an operating point
5. The rest is the same as with analytical linearization
