Assignment 4

  1. Simulate the controller in Example 7.8 and compare with the case when we have a zero-order-hold. Test different sampling intervals, h. Which is most crucial: long or short sampling intervals?
  2. Discuss how to use the extra degrees of freedom if the minimum degree solution is not used. Use the harmonic oscillator in Section 5.8 as a test example.
  3. Discuss how to make the separation between the servo and regulator cases in the input-output pole-placement design.
