THEORY:
Speed can be controlled by varying (i) flux per pole (ii) resistance of armature circuit and
(iii) applied voltage.
It is known that N
Eb.
If applied voltage is kept, Eb = V IaRa will

Remain constant. Then, N

By decreasing the flux speed can be increased and vice versa. Hence this
method is called field control method. The flux of the DC shunt motor can be
changed by changing field current, Ish with the help of shunt field rheostat. Since
the Ish relatively small, the shunt filed rheostat has to carry only a small current,
2
which means Ish R loss is small. This method is very efficient. In non-interpolar
machines, speed can be increased by this methods up to the ratio 2: 1. In interpolar
machine, a ratio of maximum to minimum speed of 6:1 which is fairly common.

FUSE RATINGS:
Blocked rotor test: 125% of rated current.
THEORY:
An servo motor is basically a two phase induction type except for certain
special design features. A two phase servomotor differ in the following two ways
from a normal induction motor.
The rotor of the servomotor is built with high resistance. So that its X / R
(Inductive reactance / resistance) ratio is small which result in liner speed torque
characteristics. The excitation voltage applied to two stator winding should have
o
a phase difference of 90
WORKING PRINCIPLE OF AC SERVOMOTOR
o

Voltages of equal rms magnitude and 90 phase difference excite the stator
o

winding. These results in exciting current i1 and i2 that are phase displaced by 90
and have equal rms value. These current are rise to a rotating magnetic field of
constant magnitude. The direction of rotation depends on the phase relationship of
the two current (or voltage).

The rotating magnetic field sweeps over the rotor conductor. The rotor
conductors experience a change in flux and so voltage are induced in rotor
conductors. This voltage circulates current in the short circuited rotor conductors
and the current creates rotor flux.
Due to the interaction of stator and rotor flux, a mechanical force (or torque)
is developed on the rotor and the rotor starts moving in the same direction as that
of rotating magnetic field.

AIM:
(i)

To obtain the bode plot, Nyquist plot and root locus of the given
transfer function.

(ii)

To analysis the stability of given linear system using MATLAB.

APPARATUS REQUIRED:
System with MATLAB
THEORY:
Frequency Response:
The frequency response is the steady state response of a system when the
input to the system is a sinusoidal signal.
Frequency response analysis of control system can be carried either
analytically or graphically. The various graphical techniques available for
frequency response analysis are
1. Bode Plot
2. Polar plot (Nyquist plot)
3. Nichols plot
4. M and N circles
5. Nichols chart
Bode plot:
The bode plot is a frequency response plot of the transfer function of a
system. A bode plot consists of two graphs. One is plot of the magnitude of a
sinusoidal transfer function versus log . The other is plot of the phase angle of a
sinusoidal transfer function versus log .
The main advantage of the bode plot is that multiplication of magnitude can
be converted into addition. Also a simple method for sketching an approximate log
magnitude curve is available.

Polar plot:
The polar plot of a sinusoidal transfer function G (j ) on polar coordinates
as is varied from zero to infinity. Thus the polar plot is the locus of vectors G
(j ) G (j ) as
is varied from zero to infinity. The polar plot is also called
Nyquist plot.
Nyquist Stability Criterion:
If G(s)H(s) contour in the G(s)H(s) plane corresponding to Nyquist contour
in s-plane encircles the point 1+j0 in the anti clockwise direction as many times
as the number of right half s-plain of G(s)H(s). Then the closed loop system is
stable.
Root Locus:
The root locus technique is a powerful tool for adjusting the location of
closed loop poles to achieve the desired system performance by varying one or
more system parameters.
The path taken by the roots of the characteristics equation when open loop
gain K is varied from 0 to are called root loci (or the path taken by a root of
characteristic equation when open loop gain K is varied from 0 to is called root
locus.)
Frequency Domain Specifications:
The performance and characteristics of a system in frequency domain are
measured in term of frequency domain specifications. The requirements of a
system to be designed are usually specified in terms of these specifications.
The frequency domain specifications are
1. Resonant peak, Mr
2. Resonant Frequency, r.
3. Bandwidth.
4. Cut off rate
5. Gain margin
6. Phase margin

Control Systems Laboratory Manual

Resonant Peak, Mr
The maximum value of the magnitude of closed loop transfer function is
called the resonant peak, Mr. A large resonant peak corresponds to a large over
shoot in transient response.
Resonant Frequency,

The bandwidth is the range of frequency for which the system gain is more
than -3db. The frequency at which the gain is -3db is called cut off frequency.
Bandwidth is usually defined for closed loop system and it transmits the signals
whose frequencies are less than cut-off frequency. The bandwidth is a measured of
the ability of a feedback system to produce the input signal, noise rejection
characteristics and rise time. A large bandwidth corresponds to a small rise time or
fast response.
Cut-Off Rate:
The slope of the log-magnitude curve near the cut off frequency is called
cut-off rate. The cut-off rate indicates the ability of the system to distinguish the
signal from noise.
Gain Margin, Kg
The gain margin, Kg is defined as the reciprocal of the magnitude of open
loop transfer function at phase cross over frequency. The frequency at witch the
phase of open loop transfer function is 180 is called the phase cross over
frequency, pc.
Phase Margin,
The phase margin , is that amount of additional phase lag at the gain cross
over frequency required to bring the system to the verge of instability, the gain
cross over frequency gc is the frequency at which the magnitude of open loop
transfer function is unity (or it is the frequency at which the db magnitude is zero).

THEORY:
Closed loop system
Control system which the output has an effect upon the input quantity in such a
manner as to maintain the desired output value is called closed loop systems.
The open loop system can be modified as closed loop system by providing a
feedback. The provision of feedback automatically corrects the change in output
due disturbances. Hence the closed loop system is also called closed loop system.
The general block diagram of an automatic control system is given below. In
consists of an error detector, a controller, plant (open loop system) and feedback
path element.
The reference signal (or input signal) corresponds to desired output. The
feedback path elements sample the output and convert it to a signal of same type as
that of reference detector. The error signal generated by the error detector is the
difference between reference signal and feedback signal. The controller modifies
and amplifies the error signal to produce better control action. The modified error
signal is fed to the plant to correct its output.

THEORY:
A synchro is an electromagnetic transducer commonly used to
convert an angular position of a shaft into an electric signal. It is commercially
known as a selsyn or an autosyn. The basic synchro unit is usually called a synchro
transmitter. Its construction is similar to that of three phase alternator. The stator is
of laminated silicon steel and is slotted to accommodate a balanced three phase
winding which is usually of concentric coil type and star connected. The rotor is
dumb bell construction and its wound with a concentric coil.
AC voltage is applied to rotor winding through slip rings. Let and
AC voltage
Vr (t) = Vr sin ct be applied to the rotor of the synchro transmitter.
The voltage causes a flow of magnetizing current in rotor coil which produces a
sinusoidally time varying flux directed along its axis and distributed nearly
sinusoidally in the air gap along the stator periphery. Because of transformer
action, voltage is induced in each of the stator coil. As the air gap flux sinusoidally
distributed the flux linking with any stator coil is proportional to the cosine of the
angle between the axes of rotor and stator coil. This flux voltage in each stator coil.
Voltages are in time.

phase with each other. Thus the synchro transmitter acts a like a single-phase
transformer in which the rotor coil is the primary and the stator coil is the
secondary.
Let Vs1n, Vs2n, Vs3n, be the voltage induced in the stator coils, S1, S2,
S3 respectively with respect to the neutral. Then for a rotor position of the synchro
transmitter, is the angle made by rotor axis with the stator coil S2.
The various stator voltages are

When = 0, Vs1s2 and Vs2 s3 have the maximum voltage and while Vs3s1 has
zero voltage. This position of rotor is defined as ht electrical zero of the transmitter
and is used as reference for specifying the angular position of the rotor.
Thus it is seen that the input to the synchro transmitter is the angular
position of its rotor shaft and the output is a set of three signal phase voltages. The
magnitudes of this voltage are function of the shift position. The output of the
synchro transmitter is applied to stator winding of synchro control transformer.
The control transmitter is similar in construction to a synchro transmitter
except for the fact that rotor of the control transformer in made cylindrical in shape
so that the air gap is practically uniform. The system (transmitter and control
transformer pair) acts an error detector, circulating current to the same phase but of
different magnitudes flow through two stator coils. The result is establishment of
an indentical flux pattern in the air gap of the control transformer as the voltage
drops in resistance and lockage reactances of two sets of stator coils are usually
small.

a voltage signal at the rotor terminals of the control transformer proportional to the
angular difference between the transmitter control transformer shaft positions.

AIM:
To simulate the time response characteristic of liner system with simple
non-linearities like saturation and dead zone.
APPARATUS REQUIRED:
System with MATLAB 6.5
THEORY:
Non-Linear Systems:
The non linear system are system witch do not obey the principle of
superposition.
In practical engineering systems, there will be always some non linearity due
to friction, inertia, stiffness, backslash, hysteresis, saturation and dead zone. The
effect of the non linear components can be avoided by restricting the operation of
the component over a narrow limited range.
Classification of non linearities:
The non linearities can be classified as incidental and intentional.
The incidental non linearities are those which are inherently present in
the system. Common examples of incidental non linearities are saturation, dead
zone, coulomb friction, stiction, backlash, etc.
The intentional non linearities are those which are deliberately
inserted in the system to modify system characteristics. The most common
example of this type of non linearity is a relay.
Saturation:

Control Systems Laboratory Manual

In this type of non linearity the output proportional to input for limited
range of input signals. When the input exceeds this range, the output tends to
become nearly constant.
All devices when driven by sufficient large signals, exhibit the
phenomenon of saturation due to limitations of their physical capabilities.
Saturation in the output of electronic, rotating and flow amplifiers, speed and
torque saturation in electric and hydraulic motors, saturation in the output of
sensors for measuring position, velocity, temperature, etc. are the well known
examples.
The dead zone is the region in witch the output is zero for given input.
Many physical devices do not respond to small signals, i.e., if the input amplitude
is less than some small value, there will be no output. The region in which the
output is zero is called dead zone. When the input is increased beyond this dead
zone value, the output will be linear.

Time Domain Specification
The desired performance characteristics of control systems are specified in
terms of time domain specification. System with energy storage elements
cannot respond instantaneously and will exhibit transient responses, whenever
they are subjected to inputs or disturbances.
The desired performance characteristics of a system of any order may be
specified in terms of the transient response to a units step input signal.
The transient response of a system to a unit step input depends on the initial
conditions. Therefore to compare the time response of various systems it is
necessary to start with standard initial conditions. The most practical standard is
to start with the system at rest and output and all time derivatives there of zero.
The transient response of a practical control system often exhibits damped
oscillation before reaching steady state.
The transient response characteristics of a control system to a unit step input

It is the taken for response to reach 50% of the final value, for the very first
time.
2. Rise Time:
It is the time taken for response to raise from 0 to 100% for the very first
time. For under damped system, the rise time is calculated from 0 to 100%. But for
over damped system it is the time taken by the response to raise from 10% to 90%.
For critically damped system, it is the time taken for response to raise from 5% to
95%.

APPARATUS REQUIRED:
System employed with MATLAB 6.5
THEORY:
The control systems are designed to perform specific taskes. When
performance specification are given for single input. Single output linear time
invariant systems. Then the system can be designed by using root locus or
frequency response plots.
The first step in design is the adjustment of gain to meet the desired
specifications. In practical system. Adjustment of gain alone will not be sufficient
to meet the given specifications. In many cases, increasing the gain may result poor
stability or instability. In such case, it is necessary to introduce additional devices
or component in the system to alter the behavior and to meet the desired
specifications. Such a redesign or addition of a suitable device is called
compensations. A device inserted into the system for the purpose or satisfying the
specifications is called compensator. The compensator behavior introduces pole &
zero in open loop transfer function to modify the performance of the system.
The different types of electrical or electronic compensators used are lead
compensator and lag compensator.
In control systems compensation required in the following situations.
1. When the system is absolutely unstable then compensation is required
to stabilize the system and to meet the desired performance.
2. When the system is stable. Compensation is provided to obtain the
desired performance.
LAG COMPENSATOR:
A compensator having the characteristics of a lag network is called a lag
compensator. If a sinusoidal signal is applied to a lag network, then in steady state
the output will have a phase lag with respect input.

Lag compensation result in a improvement in steady state performance but

result in slower response due to reduced bandwidth. The attenuation due to the lag
compensator will shift the gain crossover frequency to a lower frequency point
where the phase margin is acceptable. Thus the lag compensator will reduce the
bandwidth of the system and will result in slower transient response.
Lag compensator is essentially a low pass filter and high frequency noise
signals are attenuated. If the pore introduce by compensator is cancelled by a zero
in the system, then lag compensator increase the order of the system by one.

The lead compensator increase the bandwidth, which improves the speed of
response and also reduces the amount of overshoot. Lead compensation
appreciably improves the transient response, whereas there is a small change in
steady state accuracy. Generally lead compensation is provided to make an
unstable system as a stable system. A lead compensator is basically a high pass
filter and so it amplifies high frequency noise signals. If the pole is introduced by
the compensator is not cancelled by a zero in the system, then lead compensator
increases order of the system by one.
