ECE382 / ME482 Homework Assignments

Spring 2005

  • Assignment 1:   given in lecture January 19, 2005, due in lecture January 26, 2004.
    • Problems:   2.33, 2.34, and 2.37  (pp. 119–120)
    • Design Problems:   2.4  (p. 126)
    • Matlab Problems:   2.6  (p. 127)  For these problems, refer to section 2.10 as needed.
    • Notes (additional work required):
      • In Problem 2.37, use Matlab to construct the transfer function from the partial fraction components using the "tf" and "parallel" commands. Use Matlab to plot the response required in part (d).
      • In Matlab Problem 2.6, simplify the system by hand first, using the block diagram transformations given in Table 2.6 on p. 69 of the text. Then check your work with Matlab. Obtain the closed-loop step response using the "step" command and apply the final value theorem to verify that the limiting value of the step response obtained (if there is one) is correct.

(*) These problems are not to be turned in. The list is rather long, but it is intended that ME students skip those problems that require EE background beyond what they have and vice versa. It is worth looking at such problems carefully before deciding to skip them as you may find that you know more than you think and can consolidate what you know by working a problem.
