### Digital control: Exercise solution

Can you help me (show me how) to solve the following exercise? For the process with transfer function $G(s)=e^{-2s}/(s+1)$ design a digital controller with sampling time $T_{s} = 1$ that meets the ...

### Derivation of Strehl ratio

I am in trouble proving the following fact: The Strehl ratio is the ratio of the volume of the aberrated OTF (optical transfer function) and the ideal OTF, i.e. \begin{align} \mathcal{S}=\frac{\int\...

### Extracting transfer function from output measurement

Let's say I am generating pure sine oscillations with a laboratory instrument on which vibration frequency and amplitude are tunable (there are uncertainties +/- 1 % with my inputs), and I get my ...

### Generate a continuous time system with desired bode diagram

I have a fluid mechanics model that is heavy to simulate. Its main output is a scalar $q$ related to some energy transfer, and its input is a pressure $P$. This model, noted system 2, is coupled with ...

### Help with Implementation of Transfer Function using Python or MATLAB

Relatively new to the DSP side and wanted some help to implement this approach using Python (with NumPy, SciPy libraries) or via MATLAB. Background of the problem: I'm running a linear dynamic loads ...

### How is the transfer function of a state space representation computed in practice?

I know that if you have a linear time invariant system defined by $$\dot{X} = AX+BU$$ $$Y = CX$$ by "Laplacing" the previous equations, you get the following transfer function in the ...

### Error in the computation of PSF?

I am in trouble computing a PSF of an optical system in optical turbulence. Background The optical transfer function (OTF) for an imaging system in optical turbulence can be modeled as the product of ...

### Help with setting up transfer function correct format

I have a transfer function as: H(s) = R / (sRC + 1) V is the output and I is the input so we can write: V(s) = I(s)*H(s) Now the thing is that, I want to obtain I(t) for the given V(t). So I write: I(...

### Mismatch between the frequency response of a transfer function and bode plot

I generate a state space model as follows (The details are not important. This part is used to get matrix A_xi and B_xi and the state space model is xi(k+1) = A_xi*xi(k)+B1_xi*u0(k); y(k) = x(k)): <...

### Practical implementation of IIR/biquad filters following non-textbook transfer function of real-wold analog filter

I am trying to program a DSP filter to study prototypes of loudspeaker filters, which will be implemented as passive analog circuits in the final speaker system. This process involves simulation of ...

### real refractive index from Kramers Kronig relation

I have a measurement of the complex part of the refractive index $k$ (where the refractive index is $m = n + i\,k$) measured at a nonlinear grid of wavelengths or frequencies that span several orders ...

My $G(s)=1-e^{-s/\tau}$, $\tau$ is very small, say of order $10^{-4}$. I need to compute a $H(z)$ (a digital filter) such that $H(z)$ has the inverse response of $G(s)$. Is ok even if $G(z)$ has the ...
