## Assignment 1: Modeling of a dynamic system (cont'd...)

1.14 Consider the servo system shown in following figure which is self explanatory. The output voltage of this amplifier is applied to
the armature circuit of the dc motor. A fixed voltage is applied to the field winding. If an error exists, the motor develops a
torque to rotate the output load in such a way as to reduce the error to zero. For constant field current, the torque developed
by the motor is $T=K_2i_a$, where $K_2$ is the motor torque constant and $i_a$ is the armature current. When the armature is
rotating, a voltage proportional to the product of the flux and angular velocity is induced in the armature. For a constant flux,
the induced voltage (back emf) $e_b=K_3d\theta/dt$ $K_3$ is the back emf constant of the motor, and $\theta$ is the angular
displacement of the motor shaft.

a. Obtain the transfer function between the motor shaft angular displacement $\theta$ and the error voltage $e_v$.

b. Draw block diagram for this system and a simplify the block diagram when $L_a$ is negligible.

1.15 Consider the liquid-level system shown in the following figure. All the bars in the figure represent
steady state values. Determine the state space model of the system when $h_l$ and $h_2$ are the outputs and $q_{i1}$, and $q_{i2}$ are the inputs.
You may assume $q_{il}$, $q_{i2}$, $h_l$, $h_2$, $q_1$, and $q_0$ are considered small.
