### The Step response of an RLC circuit in State Space Model

This will be my last post in this series on using matlab for designing the compensators. In this post we will see the step response of an RLC circuit using a matlab program.The initial conditions are current is 1ma and voltage across capacitor is 2V. The state space representation of the above circuit is. Here … More The Step response of an RLC circuit in State Space Model

### Lead Compensator design with Root Locus

This has been the most difficult part for me since I started writting this series. I took one whole day to figure out how to write a program to designa lead compensator with rot locus in matlab. For those who have followed my previous posts will know by now what the compensators are. As said … More Lead Compensator design with Root Locus

### Lead Compensator design with Bode plot

Introduction to Matlab Lag Compensator with Bode Plot Lag Compensator with root locus So far we have seen the design of lag compensators, now we move on to lead compensators which help in improving the transient response. We will start from the frequency domain design using bode plot. Here I would like to tell the … More Lead Compensator design with Bode plot

### Lag Compensator design with Root Locus

So far we have discussed on an Introduction to Matlab and Lag compensator design with bode plot. In this post we will deal with lag compensator design with time domain specifications and using the root locus technique. The steps to design the lag Compensator are Draw the root locus of the given open loop uncompensated … More Lag Compensator design with Root Locus

### Lag Compensator design with Bode plot

In the previous post  An Introduction to compensator Design with matlab we saw an introduction to compensators. In this post we will deal with lag compensator design with frequency domain specifications. The steps to design the lag Compensator are Determine K from the error constatns given Sketch the bode plot Determine phase margin if it is not … More Lag Compensator design with Bode plot

### An Introduction to compensator Design with matlab

This will be a series of posts where I will be dealing with Control system Compensator design using matlab. This is intended primarily for Btech Electrical and Electronics students. I will try to be as brief as possible the underlying concepts have to be studied from standard text books. If there are any mistakes please … More An Introduction to compensator Design with matlab

### Electrical Energy- A Modern Wonder

If someone asks you to list out some of the most important inventions that revolutionized the world, you may say, radio, computers, electricity, steam engine etc. The list of inventions is just countless and we cannot pick out the “best” because all are equally important. But if someone asked me that question I would say … More Electrical Energy- A Modern Wonder

### An Engineer’s Hobby

After four years of my Btech life and the numerous electronics projects I did, I found my room overwhelming with broken components and fried up chips, all adding to the great e-waste. I had many ICs including a Pentium 4 processor some micro controller chips and even a DDR RAM. I felt like my room … More An Engineer’s Hobby

### Classification Of Software Bugs

Who is not afraid of bugs ? Most of my readers I know will shudder just at the thought of those creepy things crawling all over you . Just like the tag line of the Movie Eight-Legged Freaks , “Do you hate spiders? Do you REALLY hate spiders? Well they don’t like you either” But … More Classification Of Software Bugs

### Recursion In Programming

Recursion and recursive functions are a great concept in programming languages. For a beginner it can turn into one of the worst nightmares but once you get into the spirit of programming then writing recursive programs will be a bliss. Recently some of my friends found it difficult to write a recursive program to print … More Recursion In Programming
