No.

Theory:The control system is that by means of which any quality in a machine, mechanism or
other equipment is maintained or altered in accordance with a desired manner.
An automatic control or regulating system is a feedback control system in which the
reference input or the desired output in either constant or slowly varying with time and in
which the primary task is to maintain the actual output at the desired value in the presence of
disturbance.
There are many examples of automatic regulating system, some of which are the
automatic controls of pressure, temperature - Flow, and of electric quantities such as voltage,
current and frequency.
System error is an important feature of control system. Errors in the control system
can be attributed to many factors changes in the reference input will cause unavoidable errors
during transient periods and many also cause steady state errors. Imperfections in the system
component, such as static friction, backlash, and amplifier drift, as well as aging or
deterioration, will cause errors at steady state.
Steady state errors are a measure of accuracy of a control system. The steady-state
performance of a control system is generally judged by the steady state errors due to steps,
ramp or acceleration input, which are considered to be the standard test signals.
In these trainers we shall investigate such performance, namely a type of steady state
error, which is caused by the incapability of the system follow particular types of input.
Any physical control system inherently suffers steady state error in response to certain
types of inputs. A system may have no steady state error to a step input, but the same system
may exhibit non zero steady state error to ramp input.
Control system may be classified according to their ability to follow step inputs, ramp
input may etc. This is a reasonable classification scheme because actual may frequency be
considered as combinations of such inputs. The magnitude of a steady state error due to these
individual input are indicative of the goodness of the system.
Type 0 control system offers steady state error for step input and infinite error for
ramp output. Type 1 offers zero errors for step and constant error ramp input, whereas type 2
offers zero error for both step and ramp inputs.

Aim: - To study potentiometer as variable power supply.
Apparatus: - Trainer, potentiometer, probes and DMM.
Theory:It is an electromechanical transducer that converts mechanical energy to electrical
energy.
The input is displacement of knob. It can be linear or rotational depending upon the
potentiometer type i.e. linear or rotational. When voltage is supplied to fixed terminal, the
variable terminal gives voltage which is proportional to the knob setting. This voltage may
vary linearly or non-linearly.
Rotary potentiometer is available in single revolution or multi-revolution form, with
limited or un-limited rotational motion.
Potentiometers commonly are made with wire wound or conductive plastic resistance
material.
Conductive plastic has following advantages: Infinite revolution
Long rotational life
Good output smoothness
Low static noise
The voltage e(t) is proportional to shaft position c(t) in case of rotary motion, therefore
e(t)=Ks. c(t)
Where Ks is proportionality constant.
Now For N-turn potentiometer,
Ks=E/2N V/rad
Two remotely located shaft positions can be compared by using two potentiometers connected
in parallel. Output is taken across variable terminals of two
e(t)=Ks(1(t)-2(t))

Procedure:

Connect the power supply at input terminal of potentiometer.


Connect DMM at output terminal(variable)
Vary the angular position of knob and note output

Aim: - To study the characteristics of the Proportional Control Action.


Apparatus: - Adtrons Trainer Kit, Digital Multimeter -02 Nos.
Theory:Proportional Control Action:
For a controller with proportional control action the relationship between the output of
the controller M(t) and the actuating error signal e(t) is:
M(t) = KP e(t)
Or in the Laplace Transformed equation:
M(S)/E(S) =KP
Where KP is termed as the proportional sensitivity or gain. A block diagram of such a control
system is shown in fig.1 Potentiometer P1 is the proportional adjust potentiometer.
Potentiometer control action is essentially is amplifier with adjustable gain. Hence the
controlled output will always be the difference between set value and simulated process
input ,multiply by the proportional constant. Hence the output will always be proportional to
the difference.

Aim: To study about the active phase lag compensation network


Apparatus: CRO, Probes, Function Generator, compensation experiment kit
Theory:
In general there are two situations in which compensation is required. In the first case, the
system is absolutely unstable and compensation is required to stabilize it as well as to achieve
a specific performance. In second case, the system is stable but compensation is required to
obtain the desired performance. The system which are type-2 or higher in order are usually
absolute unstable. For these type of system clearly lead compensation is required because
only the lead compensator increase the margin of stability. In type-1 and type -0 system stable
operation is always possible if the gain is sufficiently reduced in such cases any of three
compensation viz lag, lead or lag-lead may be used to obtain desired performance.
Active Lag Compensation:
An active lag compensation network is shown in fig for an inverting operational
amplifier.

Advantages of Lag Network:
1. Improves the steady state accuracy.
2. Suppress high frequency noise.
3. Applied specifically when error constants are specified.
Disadvantages of Lag Network:
1. Reduces the speed and noise.
2. Decrease system bandwidth.
3. Slow down transient response.
4. Require large value of RC components.
Limitation of Lag Compensator:
1. The rise and setting time is more because of reduced bandwidth.
2. System becomes more sensitive to parameter variation.
3. Band width of the system reduced due to lag compensator shifts the gain cross over
frequency to a lower frequency point.

2. Set about 1Hz frequency with help of function generator and set 1V peak to peak on
the CRO. Give this as a input signal to the lag compensator i.e. connect CH-1 of CRO
to i/p of compensator N/W.
3. Connect o/p terminals of the circuit to the CH-2 of CRO through probes.
4. You will see a lagging pattern on the CRO. Measure the Phase angle sin -1(v1/v2). Set
xy mode to see a lagging pattern.
Note down the phase angle for other different frequencies through the lagging pattern.

Control Theory Lab Manual

Aim: To study for phase lead compensation circuit (active/passive).


Apparatus: CRO, probes, compensation, kit, function generator.
Theory:
In general there are two situations in which compensation is required.
1. When system is absolutely unstable & compensation is used to stabilize it.
2. The system is stable, but compensation is used to obtain required performance.
The systems which are type-2 or higher are usually absolute unstable. For these systems
compensation is required.
Passive lead compensation:
A passive lead network using two resistors &one capacitor has a transfer function of the form
Equation
Assuming impedance of souse to be zero & o/p lead impedance infinite. We desire the transfer
function.
Equation
Disadvantages of lead compensation:
1. Lead compensation requires additional amplification gain.
2. It increases bandwidth & thus noise is increased.
3. It requires large values of components for RC n/w.
4. Not applicable when phase decreases rapidly near to crossover frequency.
Advantages of lead compensation:
1. Increase system bandwidth.
2. Lead compensation yields the desired response of system.
3. When fast transient response is desired it is applied.
Effect of phase lead compensation:
Velocity constant is increase for a given relative stability.
Phase margin of system is increase.
Bandwidth resonant peak MP is increase.
Frequency response is faster.
Active lead compensation:
In active lead compensation n/w is shown in fig. for an inverting op-amp.

Procedure:

Switch on the kit for lead compensation.


Set about 1k freq. with help of function generator & set 2v p-p on the CRO, give this as
input signal to lead compensation network. I.e. connect CH-1 of CRO to input of
compensation network.
Connect the output terminals of the circuit to CH-2 of CRO.
You will see a lissagious pattern of CRO; measure the phase angle by setting x-y mode for
it.
Note down the phase angle for other different frequency 2k and 5k.

What is MATLAB?
MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates
computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where
problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation.
MatLab is an interactive system whose basic data element is an array that does not
require dimensioning.
The name MatLab stands for MATrix LABoratory.

Features of MATLAB:
MatLab features a family of add-on application-specific solutions called toolboxes.
Toolboxes are comprehensive collections of MatLab functions (M-files) that extend
the MatLab environment to solve particular classes of problems.

How to start MATLAB?


On a Microsoft Windows platform, to start MATLAB, double click the MATLAB
shortcut icon on your Windows desktop.
After starting MATLAB, the MATLAB desktop opens Note the >> is the matlab
command prompt
To end your MATLAB session, select Exit MATLAB from the File menu in the desktop,
or type quit in the Command Window.
Note that nothing is saved when you exit, you will not be prompted to save.

MATLAB containing some windows & pull down menus when you open you can see
1. Command Window: This is the main window for issuing commands and seeing results,
and is what has been used in this class up to now.
2. Command History: An ordered list of all commands issued in the Command Window.
3. Current Directory: The files in the user directory currently available for use in the
Command Window.
4. Workspace: a list of variables that have been used in the Command Window.
