1.1 Definitions

System: it is a collection of objects or components connected together to serve and objective.

Control system (CS): is a device or set of devices used to manage, command, direct or regulate

the behaviour of other devices or systems using any quantity of interest. This field is wide. It

is also applied in economy, finance, political science, physics, mathematics and biological

sciences. There are three things that define control systems: input, systems and output.

We can represent a control system in block diagrams, in terms of input, system and output.

The output may or may not be equal to the specified response by the input. Thus, the purpose

of control system is to regulate the system to produce the desired output.

Open loop or feed-forward: systems that

utilizes a device to control the process

without using feedback.

type of control Contains no feedback. The

output is not affected by the input

Application examples: Simple electric

clock

diagram for any system provided that we

know the input and the output. OL contains

no feedback. Sometimes, the input is also

called the desired input or the reference

input and the output is sometimes called

the actual output or actual response.

4

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Closed loop or feedback system: systems that uses a measurement of the output (usually a

sensor) and compares it with the desired input. The system uses the measurement of the actual

output to compare with the input, hence producing a very effective output.

The block diagram representation is given as follows:

Control, Driving an automobile, Law and order. Why are the above example falls in the

category of closed-loop system?

It is a self-regulating machine performing the operation with and without the need of the

human. This machine will keep the surrounding temperature to that of the preset value. Sensor

is used to maintain the temperature in which the air conditioner is placed.

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Sometimes, we might have one input and one output, but there are cases where we might have

multiple input and multiple output. The one (single) input and one (single) output is sometimes

called the SISO system.

On the other hand, the multiple input and multiple output is sometimes called the MIMO

system.

The following example illustrates the application in telecommunication engineering.

We can also categorize a control system in two (2) classes: servomechanism and regulators.

Servomechanism is a power amplifying feedback device in which the controlled variable is a

mechanical position or time derivative of position such as velocity or acceleration.

Characteristics: Closed loop system. The control action is dependent on the desired result.

Automatic (intelligent) control. Measures position (displacement), velocity and/or

acceleration.

Application example: (speed) cruise control of cars. Water level system.

Purpose of servomechanism:

1. Accurate control of motion without the need for human attendants (automatic control);

2. Maintenance of accuracy with mechanical load variations, changes in the environment,

power supply fluctuations, and aging and deterioration of components (regulation and

self-calibration);

3. Control of a high-power load from a low-power command signal (power amplification);

4. Control of an output from a remotely located input, without the use of mechanical

linkages (remote control, shaft repeater).

7

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

The constant speed control system of a DC motor is a servomechanism that monitors any

variations in the motor's speed so that it can quickly and automatically return the speed to its

correct value. Servomechanisms are also used for the control systems of guided missiles,

aircraft, and manufacturing machinery.

Regulator

A regulator is a system where the reference input is constant for a long period of time.

Characteristics: closed loop system and the input (setpoint) is held constant.

Application example: Car (power) window, Human body temperature, Automatic temperature

regulated over, Human perspiration system.

Static System

A static system is a deterministic system. The effects of inertia are ignored. Statics is branch

of mechanics dealing with analysis of behaviour (usually in terms of displacements, strains,

stresses and forces) of bodies (mechanical systems, structures) while neglecting inertia effects.

It is based on equilibrium conditions and the quantity time plays no role in the analysis.

For a static system, the output response to an input that does not change with time i.e. the input

is held constant. Mathematically: y = f(u)

The output signal, y(t), at time t, depends on the value of input at time t.

Dynamic System

Dynamics is a branch of mechanics where due emphasis is paid to inertial effects as opposed

to statics where such effects are ignored. A dynamic system may or may not be a deterministic

and predictable system. It is a system that evolve or change with respect to time. Generally,

this particular system is described by differential equations. Mathematically:

The output signal y(t), at time t, depends on past values of the input.

It is evidently clear that a capacitor is a dynamic system the output of a capacitor depends on

all past inputs.

8

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

If a system is brought to any particular initial condition (or state) and its response decays

continuously to zero state, the system is said to be stable of a particular kind called

asymptotically stable.

If a system grows out of bound without any limit, then the system is an unstable system.

Linear system is a type of system that satisfies the principle of superposition and homogeneity.

where the variables to be solved cannot be written as a linear combination of independent

components.

The main objective of a control system is to produce a desired system, reducing errors and

achieving systems stability.

What do we analyze in control system?

1. Transient (temporary) response,

2. Steady-state response and

3. Stability.

Transient Response or natural response (remember differential equations?) it is the

homogeneous solution.

Example: consider an elevator going from the first floor to the fourth floor. If a transient

response is: Too slow passenger would be angry or Too fast you would be scared.

Steady State Response: An approximation to the desired response. It is also the response that

exist for a long time following the given input signal. In the previous lift example, the steady

state response is when the lift is about to reach the fourth floor. We will also examine the steady

state error, which is how accurately the system performs.

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Consider an example of an elevator going from the first floor to the fourth floor. The output of

the elevator can be represented as follows:

1.10 Stability

It is a performance measure of a system. If a system is stable, then it should operate properly.

An unstable system would lead to self-destruction or chaos. For example, in flight control

system, if it is unstable, it would crash. The total response of the system is given by:

For a particular control system to be useful, we want the natural response to either approach to

zero or oscillate. Sometimes, the natural response will go out of bound, hence the system would

be unstable. We can use mathematical techniques to analyze and control the stability of a

particular control system.

10

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

It uses mathematical language to describe a particular system. Why? Important to gain

understanding and further insight to the system, hence enabling us to perform analysis. Useful

for prediction, formulation and simulation. Useful for estimation and prediction of

unforeseeable event that could somehow affect the system. Type of mathematical model

studied in control engineering:

1. Classical form: representation of nth order differential equations

2. Transfer functions: the ratio between the output to the input, found after taking the

Laplace transform of differential equations.

3. State space: A representation of a set of nth order simultaneous first-order differential

equations.

Uses conservation laws a set of principles describing certain quantities within an isolated

system that does not change with time.

It is a preserved (conserved) quantity. Among the aspects conserved: mass, momentums,

energy, charges etc. Example: Kirchoffs Voltage and Current Laws.

CHAPTER TWO:

SYSTEM MODELING: MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

2.1 Introduction

The main areas captured here are:

Mechanical Systems, Electrical systems and Electromechanically systems and their respective

models.

Basic Law Newtons Law of Motion under Time derivative motion, thus displacement,

velocity & acceleration

Mass, Spring and Damper are key components of mechanical systems or Equivalent System.

mechanical principles. There are two types of mechanical system viz: Translational system

whose motion is generally linear and Rotational system which also makes rotational

(revolution) motion. Torque and moments of inertia are considered under this system.

Time Derivative Motion: Time derivative is the rate of change of a function with respect to

time.

Displacement A vector quantity representing the length of separation between two objects or

bodies, Velocity The rate of change of displacement and Acceleration The rate of change

of velocity.

The translational elements and the corresponding equations of motion are listed below:

13

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Step I: Sketch Free Body Diagram & Define Important Parameters

Draw (sketch) a suitable free body diagram and define important parameters.

Be careful and consistent with signs: if you define your motion to the right to be

positive, then use that convention throughout your calculation.

It doesnt really matter what convention you use for as long as your are consistent, you

will get the right equation.

Step II: Obtain a Set of Differential Equation

Start your modeling by using Newtons Law and conserve all forces i.e. Fin=Fout.

From there, obtain a set of differential equation describing your system.

Step III: Represent Your DE in Transfer Function or State Space

Next, you may represent your differential equation in state space format or in transfer

function, depending on the requirements i.e. the question.

If you wish to represent your equation in transfer function, then take the forward

Laplace transform and assume zero initial conditions.

If you wish to represent your equation in state space, then generate the state space

matrix.

Torque can be defined as the tendency to produce a change in rotational motion. The defining

equation is:

The distance d, is measured perpendicular to the line of action of the force F.

Angular Displacement of a rigid body describes the amount of rotation. Usually denoted by the

symbol . A more applicable way of measuring the angular displacement is the radian. It is

defined by the following equation:

15

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Angular Velocity is the time rate of change in angular displacement. Usually denoted by the

symbol (omega). It is defined by the following equation:

Angular acceleration is the rate of the angular velocity. It is usually denoted by the symbol

Mass Moment of Inertia: It is a measure of an object's resistance to changes to its rotation. And

it is also the inertia of a rotating body with respect to its axis of rotation. The symbol I or J are

usually used to refer to the moment of inertia or polar moment of inertia.

A rotational system can be analyzed similar to the translational system. A rotation will

generally occur around a fixed axis. Torques will occur around the axis rotation and it

corresponds to forces. Inertia however, resists the angular acceleration.

Modeling Rotational Mass: A rotational mass is subjected to the mass moment of inertia

related to mass.

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Systems with Gears: Gears provide mechanical advantage to rotational systems. Some

applications include in systems using a motor as its actuator.

Consider the following gear: r = radius T = torques = displacement N = no. of teeth:

Resistor, Inductor and capacitor are the 3 basic elements of electrical circuits of which the last

two store energy while the first one (resistor) dissipate energy.

There are many techniques that can be used to analyze electrical circuits. Two famous

techniques are discussed in this lecture: Kirchoffs Current Law and Kirchoffs Voltage Law

Other techniques include Voltage divider and Current divider rules. The defining equations

for such electrical systems are shown below.

This subsection will address the following areas: Opamps, Types of op-amp (Inverting and

non-inverting) and Modeling od operational amplifiers using of KCL/KVL or Transfer

function.

Operational Amplifiers: It is a DC differential amplifier incorporating many solid-state

elements in a compact package. Op-amp operates from DC to some upper frequency limit of

the order 1MHz.

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Figure 2.2 op-amp IC. A DIP pin-out for a typical 741-type operational amplifier

The positive (+) input is called the non-inverting input because the output from this

source is in phase with the input.

The inverting input (negative input) has the opposite behaviour, that is, the output

resulting from this source is 180 out of phase with the input.

Op-amp using NPN transistor will have input impedance greater than 1M. Because

of this high impedance, the input current for op-amp is essentially zero.

The output impedance of op-amps is very low, typically less than 1, and the open-

loop gain is very high, and can be up to the order of 106.

We usually make the following assumption when dealing with op-amp:

Because the op-amp gain is so high, when the output voltage is within its normal

operating range, the voltage between the input terminals is so small that it can

be assumed to be zero.

The current drawn by an op-amp input is zero because its input resistance is

very, very large.

The characteristics of an op-amp are:

Differential input V2(t)=v1(t)

High input impedance Zi= (ideal)

Low output impedance zo=0 (ideal)

High constant gain amplification A= (ideal)

The output of an op-amp is measured in terms of gain.

21

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

The circuit shown below is used for finding the difference of two voltages each multiplied by

some constant (determined by the resistors).

The name "differential amplifier" should not be confused with the "differentiator.

The following are some of the possible configurations of the op-amp: Sign changer, Amplifier,

Integrator, Differentiator, Lag, Lead, Lead-lag or lag-lead, Bandwidth limited integrator,

Bandwidth limited differentiator, etc.

CHAPTER THREE:

TIME AND FREQUENCY RESPONSES

2.1 Overview

This chapter will address the following areas as applied to time and frequency responses:

Test input signals, Initial and final value theorem, Time response (First order system response

and Second order system response) Frequency response and techniques, Bode plot and Gain

and phase margins.

A time response is the response (output) of a system with respect to time, given certain type of

inputs. There are generally four (4) types of input: Step input, Ramp input, Parabolic input and

Impulse input.

We always choose the typical signal as the input when analyzing the transient response of a

system because of the following advantages:

1. It simplifies mathematical calculations. The performance indices under the given

typical signal are convenient for system analysis and synthesis.

2. The response to a typical input can often be used as the basis for analyzing the

performance of a system under very complex inputs.

3. It is easier to determine the transfer function of an unknown system.

Step Input

The most common type of input. Also known as Heaviside unit-step function.

Example of step input: Turning on a switch in a circuit, actuating a valve in a fluid system,

Driving over a curb.

27

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Ramp Input

A steadily rising signal.

Examples: Machine tool cutting metal Robot lifting a box Telescope tracking a star across

the sky

Parabolic Input or quadratic input: The input changes (proportional) with time.

Impulse Function

This function is also called Dirac, needle, , or pulse function. The

impulse function consists of a brief pulse, i. e., at the time t = t0

the input value rises to a high value A for a short time (impulse

duration t) and then immediately drops back to its original value.

The impulse function is the derivative of unit step function.

28

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

We can predict the behaviour of a system at two different time, namely the initial time ti, and

also the final time tf. The initial time, sometimes written t(0), is the time t=0 at which the

system receives the excitation input. The final time, sometimes written t() is the time when

the system have reached the steady state. We can determine the behaviour of a system at these

two times by using the initial and final value theorems.

The initial value theorem predicts or describes the initial behaviour of a particular system.

The final value theorem predicts or describe the behaviour of the system at steady state.

29

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

We can also determine and observe the output of a first and second order systems. Recall that

the first and second order system is described by a first and second order differential equations,

respectively. To find the output response of these systems, we simply solve the differential

equations either by using the classical method or Laplace transform. Once we are able to solve

the differential equations, we will plot the output response.

Recall that R(s) is the input of the system. We can actually give many type of input to our

system be it impulse, step, ramp or even parabolic inputs. We can perform the analysis of a

1st order system by using the initial and final value theorems or by using the Laplace transform

method.

Example 1

Given the following system. Find the response of the system subjected to step, ramp and

parabolic input by using the initial and final value theorems:

Solution to Example 1

Example 2

the step, ramp and parabolic nature.

Solution to Example 2

31

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Transient response is the temporary response of the system, just before it settles down to a

value. In 1st order systems, we usually analyze Time constant (), Rise time(tr) and Settling

time (ts).

Time constant (from differential equation)

Every first order differential equation can be represented in the following general form:

32

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

This simply means that this the time constant, , is the time taken for the step response to rise

to 63% of its final value.

33

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Rise Time, Tr

The time for the response (graph) to go from 0.1 to 0.9 of its final value.

Settling Time, Ts

The time for the system to settle-down and stay within 2% of its final value. (some books use

5%, but for our case, well stick to 2%). If we assume that the final value of our system is

100%, then a 2% would constitute 98% or simply 0.98. Hence, for a first-order system to settle

down:

General block diagram:

34

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

There are two very important parameters in a second order system namely: Natural frequency,

n and Damping ratio, (zeta).

By definition, natural frequency is the frequency at which a system naturally vibrates once it

has been set into motion. In other words, natural frequency is the number of times a system

will oscillate (move back and forth) between its original position and its displaced position, if

there is no outside interference. Sometimes, the natural frequency is also known as the

undamped natural frequency.

Damping Ratio, is a dimensionless measure of how a body in oscillation decays.

If there are dampers or frictional losses, then there will be more damping. There are generally

four (4) types of damping: Overdamped system, Underdamped system, Critically damped

system, Undamped system.

Overdamped System

35

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

In general, for overdamped case, we have two real and distinct poles > 1

Underdamped System

In general, for an underdamped system, we have two complex conjugate poles 0 < < 1.

Critically Damped System

In general, a critically damped system has two real and repeated poles = 1

Undamped

In an undamped system, there exists no first order terms in a second order differential equation

of motion, meaning to say, there is no dampers or dashpot present in the system. Hence, the

system will continue to oscillate.

In general, for undamped case : We have two pure imaginary and complex conjugate. = 0

36

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Pole location is a function of damping ratio. A change in damping ratio means that the pole

location has changed. The pole location is important for predicting responses to all kinds of

inputs. Consider the following second order transfer function:

The pole can be computed by letting the denominator equal zero, and then solving the quadratic

equation.

37

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

As with the same case for a 1st order system, we are also looking at the following parameters

(besides the n and ): Peak time, Rise time, Percent overshoot and Settling time.

38

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Engineers are often interested in how a circuit will respond to a sinusoidal input (i.e. current,

voltage). Suppose that we have a linear system represented by the following diagram:

If a sinusoidal input is given, then the output signal is also sinusoidal signal of the same

frequency, but with different amplitude and phase.

Frequency response of a control system is defined as the steady-state response of the system

when the sinusoidal input is applied at the input terminals. The sinusoidal input signal when

applied to a linear system results in an output signal, which is sinusoidal in SteadyState and

differs from the input waveform only in amplitude and phase angle.

systems without any difficulty as the sinusoidal test signals for various ranges of frequencies

and amplitudes are easily available. Frequency response function describing the sinusoidal

steady-state behaviour of the system can be obtained by replacing s=j in the transfer function

G(s) of the system. The function G(j) representing the sinusoidal steady-state behaviour of

the system is a function of complex variable having magnitude and phase angle. The magnitude

and phase angle of function G(j) for various frequencies are represented by various graphical

plots in different coordinates which give better insight for the analysis and design of control

systems.

We take note that any curve giving information regarding the amplitude (gain) or phase shift

of the frequency function is known as the frequency response of the system.Typical examples

of frequency response graph are the Polar plot (a.k.a. Nyquist plot) and Bode plot.

39

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

A polar plot is a plot of the magnitude and phase angle in polar coordinates for various values

of frequencies ranging from zero to infinity.

Bode plot on the other hand is a plot of magnitude and phase angle versus the frequencies in

rectangular coordinates.

In practice, the frequency function of the system is so complex and long that the characteristic

of the system cannot be determined at the desired frequency just only by inspection of the

system frequency function. Hence, the frequency function of systems is plotted in these

graphical forms which indicate the system characteristics.

Bode Plot

NB: In this lecture, I shall be focusing only the Bode plot. The polar plot is omitted and if you

are interested, you can learn on your own.

The Bode plot is generally:

Plots of frequency response.

Gain and phase are displayed in separate plots.

Logarithmic plots.

The horizontal axis is frequency - plotted on a log scale. It can be either f or .

The vertical axis is gain, expressed in decibels - a logarithmic measure of gain.

Sometimes, the vertical axis is simply a gain on a logarithmic scale.

And in general, a Bode plot consists of two components (subplot): The ratio of the amplitudes

of the output signal and the input signal is plotted against frequency.

The phase shift between the input and output signal is plotted against the frequency.

The Bode plot allows us to experimentally determine the transfer function without the tedious

process of detailed modeling.

40

A bit on decibel

A decibel (dB) is a ratio between two numbers on a logarithmic scale. A decibel is not itself a

number, and cannot be treated as such in normal calculations. Widely used when dealing with

sinusoidal function and waves. It confers a number of advantages, such as: the ability to

conveniently represent very large or small numbers, a logarithmic scaling that roughly

corresponds to the human perception of sound and light; and the ability to carry out

multiplication of ratios by simple addition and subtraction.

The phase shift is given as:

41

Control Systems (CE379) Prepared By: E. Effah, 2017

Note that a positive angle is known as phase lead and a negative angle is known as phase

lag.

Sketching Bode Plot

There are two ways of sketching the Bode plot. The first method is the tabulation method

where the table of values is generated. This is the easiest method. The second method is the

analytical method. This is by far, the challenging method. Use of any method is acceptable.

CHAPTER FOUR:

BLOCK DIAGRAMS: REPRESENTATION AND SIMPLIFICATION

4.1 Introduction

A control system consists of a number of components connected to perform a desired function.

Once components (system or subsystem) is reduced to a mathematical model, it can be

represented as a block with the component operation described by the mathematical function.

It is convenient and useful to represent the element of a control system by blocks. The

properties of the block are contained in the transfer function, represented by a Laplace

transform. Thus, a block diagram is a representation of an entire control system in terms of all

the elements and their transfer function.

As mentioned, a system is represented by input, output and transfer function. Many systems

are composed of multiple subsystems. When multiple subsystems are interconnected, then, a

few more schematic elements must be added to the block diagram. The elements are summing

and pick-off points. The characteristics of summing point is that the input point is the algebraic

sum of the many input signals. A pick-off point distributed the input signal to several output

points.

There are generally three structures of block diagram: Cascade form, Parallel form and

Feedback form.

Deriving the transfer function for feedback system:

A unity feedback system is one in which the primary feedback is identically equal to the

controlled output.

The advantage of a unity feedback system is that the reference input and the system output

represent the same quantity and it can be compared directly.

Usually, the feedback to a control system is a sensor. By having feedbacks to your system:

1. There is an increase in system components and complexity.

2. There is a possibility of the system being unstable.

Despite the fact that feedback system has its own disadvantages, however, its advantages far

outweighs the disadvantages, thus it is much more desirable to have a feedback system.

Definitions

Poles Poles are the roots of D(s) (the denominator of the transfer function), obtained by

setting D(s) = 0 and solving for s.

Zeros The roots of the numerator of the transfer function obtained by setting N(s) = 0 and

solving for s.

Pole-Zero Map A plot of poles and zeros.

A stable system has a closed-loop transfer functions with poles only in the left half plane.

An unstable system has a closed-loop transfer functions with at least one pole in the right half

plane and/or poles of multiplicity greater than one on the imaginary axis.

A marginally stable system has closed-loop transfer functions with only imaginary axis poles

of multiplicity 1 and poles in the left half plane.

A system is said to be stable if every bounded input produced a bounded output. The following

system shows a stable system:

There are two conditions in order for a system to be stable. The first condition is the sufficient

condition and the second condition is the necessary condition. The sufficient condition is

the minimum requirement in order for a system to be stable. The necessary condition is a

must condition in order for a system to be stable.

Consider the following characteristic equation:

The stability of this system may be determined by solving this characteristic equation. Solving

this equation will yield roots of the characteristic equation. The necessary but insufficient

condition for the stability of a system is that all coefficients of the above characteristic equation

be real and have the same signs. Furthermore, none of the coefficients should be zero.

We also take note of the following results:

1. If all the roots of the characteristic equation have negative real parts, then the system is

stable.

2. If any root of the characteristic equation has a positive real part or if there is a repeated

root on the jw-axis, then the system is unstable (because it lies on the right-half plane).

3. If some of the coefficients are zero or negative, then it can be concluded that the system

is unstable.

4. If all the coefficients of the characteristic equation have the same signs, then the

possibility of the stability exists and one should proceed further to examine the

sufficient condition of stability.

Theorem:

1. The positive-ness of the coefficients of characteristic equation is necessary as well as

sufficient condition for stability of system of a first and second order.

2. The positive-ness of the coefficients of the characteristic equation ensures that the

negative-ness of real roots, but it does not ensure the negative-ness of the real parts of

the complex roots for third and higher order systems.

In sum, a necessary and sufficient condition for a feedback system to be stable is that all of the

poles of the system transfer function must have negative real parts.

CHAPTER FIVE:

STATE SPACE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN

Every square matrix has its eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors. The eigenvalues,

usually denoted by the symbol , is found by forming the characteristic equation:

Eigenvalues can tell us about the stability of a system. A system is stable if and only if the

eigenvalues of A have negative real parts.

Classical control system Analysis is performed in frequency/s-domain Example: root locus,

bode diagram, Nyquist plot

Modern control system is introduced due to arrival of space exploration. Thus, Modeling using

LTI system becomes inadequate. The effect of time must be taken into account. SS is applicable

for all type of system: linear, non-linear, digital system and MIMO system.

SS uses the matrix approach.

5.2 SS Analysis

In state space analysis, the dynamic of a control system is described by a set of first order

differential equations. The general format is written as follows:

A state variable is one of the set of variables that describe the "state" of a dynamical system.

Intuitively, the state of a system describes enough about the system to determine its future

behaviour. Models that consist of coupled first-order differential equations are said to be in

53

state-variable form. A state variable is a time-related quantity. For example, voltage and current

is a state variable, but not resistance or inductance.

Example: Convert the following transfer function to state space.

Type 3: SS to TF

Consider the following equation:

Our main task is to convert the above state space equation to transfer function. To do so, take

the forward Laplace transform and assume zero initial conditions.

We can represent a transfer function in various state space format. There are essentially four

state space formats that will be of our main concern:

o Controllable canonical form

o Observable canonical form

o Diagonal canonical form

o Jordan canonical form

Let us look and study all of this form in the next slide. Now, the general format of transfer

function is:

The controllable canonical form (in state space, that is) is given as follows:

Note: You can also use the signal flow graph to obtain the above model.

The output equation is given as:

The observable canonical form (in state space, that is) is given as follows:

A diagonal canonical form is a little different. To represent your transfer function in diagonal

canonical form, you must first sort your transfer function in the following form (factor the

denominator):

The state space representation for diagonal canonical form is given as:

57

Now, a Jordan canonical form can only be used to represent a transfer function having multiple

poles, given as follows:

The state space matrix for Jordan Canonical Form is of the form:
