## Ql. (a) A Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) consultancy is recruiting

new engineers for the company. You a"re expected to answer several basic
control system questions as a candidate following a preliminary procedure.
Please provide the best solutions for the following enquiries.
(i) Based on your knowledge in control engineering, give three (3) benefits
of having control engineering knowledge in HVAC system.

## (ii) Identiff the type of control system used if a room temperature is

maintained between2?oc to 25oC with a switch that regulates 'on' and
'off in a pre-defined switching cycle.
(iiD Give reasons for your answer in Ql (a)(ii).
(iv) With the same control system, give an additional mechanisms that allow
the temperature to be maintained within the desired range ideally without
e1Tor.

(11 marks)

(b) Obtain the transfer function (X"/X) of the mechanical system shown in FIGURE

## Ql(bxr) and show that this system is analogous to an electrical system in

FIGURE Ql(bxii) which is having a transfer function of
E,(4 (Rrcrs+l){Rzcrs*1}
e, (") (Rrcrs + tXRzCus * 1) + R"Grs
(8 marks)

(c) Prove that the following block diagram reductions are correct.

## (b) A movement of a typical mechanical system is being modelled as in

FIGURE Q2. If the input signal is applied force, f(t) and its output signal is
displacement Xr{f},
O write the differential equation of motion for the system. Use Laplace
transform and assume all initial conditions are zero.
(6 marks)

## (ii) sketch the block diagram of the system.

(8 marks)

(iii) obtain the transfer function of the system with the input and output signal
as in Q2(b) using any suitable method.
(9 marks)

## PART B: AIISWER TWO (2) OUT OF THREE QUESTIONS

Q3 (a) Find the transfer function Xrfu)tX,(s) of the mechanical system shown in

## FIGURE Q3 using the block diagram reduction or signal flow graph.

(5 marks)
(b) From part (a), if the input signal is a unit step, determine
(i) the value of k and a to yield 30% overshoot and a settling time of 4

## seconds for a system,

(ii) the value of rise time (7,),peak time (4) *O steady-state elror (r",) of the

## system step response, and

(iii) the location of the system's poles in s-plane.
Then,
(iv) plot the system's poles is the s-plane, and
(v) sketch the time response graph of the system and indicate the location and
value of rise time (r,),peak time (rr),percent overshoot (%oS), settling

## time (q) *a steady-state error (r",) in the graph.

(13 marks)
(c) From part (a), if the input signal is a unit ramp, determine the value of k and a
to yield a 5Yo error in the steady-state and a 30Yo overshoot.

(i) Sketch the Nyquist plot (use scale of I cm: 1 unit on both a:res)
(ii) Find phase and gain margin from the graph.
(iii) Give two (2) disadvantages of using Nyquist plot.
(15 marks)

Q5 (a) FIGURE Q5 shows the simplest form of on-off type feedback controller for the
temperature control. Explain how Proportional (P), Proportional plus Derivative
(PD) and Proportional plus Integral and Derivative (PID) controllers affects the
transient of this system. (Use the same plot to explain your answer)
(12 marks)
(b) The open loop transfer function of a control system is given by
K
KG(s)H(')-
s(s+l)(s+a)
Design an ideal derivative compensator to yields 16% Overshoot, with a threefold
reduction in settling time. Sketch the root locus on a linear graph paper to obtain
the corresponding pole, undamped natural frequency an and damped natural
frequency oa forthe compensated system. I Use the scale of 2 cm: I unit on both
a:res]
