Input TRANSFER FUNCTION Output X(s) Y(s) X(s) Y(s) G(s) . Output signal Y(s). and transfer function.Block Diagram • Normally relation between input signal X(s). • To describe the relationship between the output and the input a block diagram is used as shown in Fig. G(s). are visualize in block diagram. 1.

This cannot be done in t-domain.• One advantage of using s-domain is that the output signal Y(s) is the result of the multiplication between the input signal X(s) and the transfer function G(s). .
