Assignment 7
The Design of Feedback Control Systems
 Watch video “EE495 – Week 7 – Lecture”
 Read Chapter 10 in the text Modern Control Systems, 12th Edition.
 Work the following problems:

 A unity feedback control systems for a robot submarine has a plant with a thirdorder transfer function
G(s) = K / (s(s + 10)(s +50))
We want the overshoot to be approximately 7.5% for a step input and the settling time (with a 2% criterion) of the system be 400ms. Find a suitable phaselead compensator by using root locus methods. Let the zero of the compensator be located at s = 15, and determine the compensator pole. Determine resulting Kv.

 A system of the form below with unity feedback has G(s) = K / (s + 5)2
We desire the steadystate error to a step input to be approximately 5% and the phase margin of the system to be approximately 45 degrees. Design a lag network to meet these specifications.

Assignment 8
Digital Control Systems
 Watch video “EE495 – Week 8 – Lecture”
 Read Chapter 13 in the text Modern Control Systems, 12th Edition.
 Work the following problems:

 A closedloop system has a hold circuit and process as shown below. Determine G(z) when T = 1 and
Gp(s) = 2 / (s + 2)

 A sampleddata system such as that presented in problem (i) has a sampling period T = 0.05s and has
G(z) = K (z3 + 10.3614z2 + 9.758z + 0.8353) / (z4 – 3.7123z3 + 5.1644z2 – 3.195z + 0.7408)
 Determine K when the two real poles break away from the real axis.
 Calculate the maximum K for stability.
