What are some of the examples of "plant" in control systems?

In control systems, the plant is not controlled. Properly, a behavior or action of the plant is what is controlled. Saying that a motor is controlled begs the question, "What about the motor is ...

What are some of the examples of "plant" in control systems?

Plant, in the context of a control system, means the thing being controlled towards a goal. The only limit to that is your imagination. One of the earliest examples of a servo mechanism was the speed ...

What are some of the examples of "plant" in control systems?

Anything you want to control. The voltage output of a power supply is one I encounter a lot. Motors are just an easy example because they're easy to conceptualize. It could be the current through an ...

Induction motor control panel circuit

Comments on today's schematic: Please consider redrawing the power supply section of your schematic so that input-to-output flows from left to right, and the positive rail is above the negative rail. (...

Induction motor control panel circuit

The Ground pins of the Pico should only be used to connect the Pico to Ground. Ground connections for the motors and LEDs should go directly to Power Supply Ground, and not pass through the Pico. ...

Confusion regarding transfer function and state space conversion in MATLAB

For transfer functions, if you restrict it to canonical representation -- i.e., a polynomial in \$s\$ or \$z\$, with the leading coefficient of the denominator polynomial = 1 (i.e., \$D(s) = s^n + a_{...

Effect on stability margins when an integrator is introduced in the loop of a closed loop system

Since we were told that only one of the option is correct I immediately hit (b) because an integrator is known to make steady state error 0 A real-life integrator does not make the steady-state error ...

Poles of a second-order closed-loop transfer function

Try this picture from my basic website: - So, the point on the \$j\omega\$ axis coincident with the positive pole is \$\omega_n\sqrt{1-\zeta^2}\$ and, this is sometimes called the damped frequency.

Poles of a second-order closed-loop transfer function

The imaginary value of the pole represents the damped frequency of oscillation, Wd. The higher the imaginary part of the pole is in value, the higher will be the damped frequency of oscillation. If ...

Poles of a second-order closed-loop transfer function

If you read about the real part then you must be able to read about the imaginary part, as well, along with explanations. What you're asking can take a good part of a book. Otherwise, to find out how ...

Decide P controller gain K so that phase margin is 50°

By far the easiest way is to investigate the open loop transfer function \$H_\text{ol}(s) = KG(s) \$. Initially, set \$K=1\$ and look at the Bode Plot: - ...

Decide P controller gain K so that phase margin is 50°

I don't know if the following method is the easiest technique to find k given phase margin or not. The following equation gives phase margin when damping ratio, zeta is known. We want to know zeta ...

Meaning of time parameters in control theory

The definitions for timings can vary among various sources but, as I know them: Correct, the lower the td the faster the system responds; It's considered from 10%-90% for consistency; you may also ...

Meaning of time parameters in control theory

The 10%-90% definition of rise time is for measurement practicality. If you are going to make a well-defined time measurement, you need a signal changing fairly quickly. If you try to make a 0%-100% ...
