### Frequency warping when integrators are replaced with backward-euler and forward-euler integration

Resonant controllers are used in the power industry. The transfer function is $G_{res}(s) = \frac{K_i*s}{s^2 +2*\omega_c*s+ \omega_o^2}$ The "textbook" discrete implementation is depicted in the ...

### Why does the control effort increase if the bandwidth of the system is higher then the bandwidth of the plant?

I am studying control systems and I am focusing on the control effort. I have seen that if I place a pole at higher and higher frequencies, if the bandwidth of the system goes above the bandwidth of ...

### Is it possible to use a control scheme with a delay as prefilter?

I am studying control systems, and in my studies I have encountered the topic of control scheme of the form and I have seen thaht this control scheme is really useful since it is possible to add a ...

### Lead compensator vs lag compensator?

I already know that lag compensator acts like PI controller and improves steady state and lead compensator acts like PD controller improves transient state but how they achieve their goal? Despite ...

### What does it mean that a zero is slow?

I am studying control systems, and I have encountered the definizion of slow zero. I am searching on internet and on books, but I don't understand the meaning this. I know that if a zero is too slow, ...

### Does a RHP zero imposes some limitation in the time domain?

I am studying control systems and I have seen that a non-minimum phase zero imposes limitation in bandwidth , which is that the bandwidth has to be lower than a frequency which is half the frequency ...

### Problem in verifying zero blocking property of a zero of a multiple input multiple output system

I have a multiple input multiple output control system, and in particular a two inputs two outputs system. I want to find the zero state direction and the zero input direction of the system, which has ...

### Doubt on the relationship between the sensitivity and the complementary sensitivity function

I am doing loop shaping with the following transfer functions: G = 10/((s+10)*(s+1)); K1 = 0.5/s; where G is the process and K1 is the controller, and If I ...

### Is a good practice to use one PID in rise time and another PID for steady time in order to eliminate oscillations during steady time?

I'm trying to control temperature with PID(Kp,Ki, Kd). During the rise time the system use one PID and when target is reached the system switch to another PID with other parameter in order to ...

### Influence of a RHP zero/pole in the frequency response

I am studying loop shaping, and I am looking at loop shaping design with unstable poles and zeros. I have seen that noth unstable poles and zeros introduce limitations in the bandwidth. I have also ...

### Can a pole at the origin be considered a dominant pole?

I am studying control syetems, and I have studied that the dominant poles of a system are the ones closer to the imaginary axis. Now, consider a system with a pole at the origin. Can this pole at the ...

### Understand diagram of a process

I've found this diagram in a slide, but i have no backround to properly understand it. Could you explain to me, in simple terms, how this process behaves and what's the purpose of the blocks $z^{-1}$ ?...

### Control optimization problem

I am running into a problem where I have a control system $S[t]$ that takes a control $C[t]$, so that $$S[t+1] = H(C[t,t-1,...], S[t,t-1,...])$$ the response of the system is the history of controls ...

### Measurement delay versus control delay

For a typical control loop (no delay, measurement transfer function is 1) the closed-loop transfer function is $$H(s) = \frac{G_{comp}G_{process}}{1+G_{comp}G_{process}}$$ With an actuator delay ...
### On $H_\infty$ norm for transfer function
For a given scenario in the context of control system, I'm trying to investigate how the $H_\infty$ norm can be calculated for a transfer function as follows: G(s)= \frac{w_n^2}{s^2 +2\zeta w_ns +...
