1. Obtain the transfer function between the input exciting flow V(t) (volumetric fluid flow rate into the cylinder) and the velocity u(t) of the mass M 2 for the system shown in figure 1. The cylinder has area of cross section A as shown. 2. Using Routh's criteria obtain the limiting. values of Rt within which range the system

Area of cross section A

shown in figure 2 remains stable.

Draw the theoretical Nyquist diagram for the open loop system. What general


conclusion may be drawn from such a diagram? The parameters given are in consistent units. 4. A velocity control scheme is shown in figure 4. For the given system K1 = 100, R1 0.2, K2 = 20, a= 1, b 5, M = 1. Obtain the critical distance d where the velocity sensor may be placed such that the system remains stable. Use Routh's criterion.

5. A displacement control scheme for an articulated system of vehicles is shown in figure 5. Obtain the transfer function between the velocity of mass m 2 and the force acting on mass m 1 from the bond graph model of the system. Draw root locus diagram for the system. Discuss what general conclusion may be drawn from the diagram.
