3. ### Engineering Simple Circuit Problem (Clarification of doubts)

The value for I_x doesn't seem to be correct. I'm not exactly sure how you got the value that you did. The node to the left of the 5 ohm resistor there's only three paths for current to flow through. It looks like your summing the currents at node A when you solve for Ix? If this is the case...

What about the voltage across the inductor?
6. ### Engineering Simple Circuit Problem (Clarification of doubts)

When you did your conversion, point B shouldn't be connected to ground, it wasn't in the original problem before the conversion.
7. ### Engineering Simple Circuit (RL circuit)

I would recommend not memorizing such equations. It really makes things complicated when presented with problems that don't fit them. There are several ways you could solve the problem. Do you know the equation for KVL for after the switch is opened?
8. ### Digital Communication Systems - Autocorrelation

Homework Statement A white noise process W(t) with unity (N_0/2 = 1) power spectral density is input to a linear system. The output of the linear system is X(t), where X(t) = W(t) - W(t - 1) Determine the autocorrelation of X(t) and sketch it. Homework Equations Let τ denote a time...
9. ### Electrical Engineering - Control Systems - Design Via Frequency Respon

My text says that we can find the frequency, ω_{max} at which the maximum phase angle, Θ_{max}, occurs ω_{max} = \frac{1}{T\sqrt{β}} But this doesn't really seem to help since I don't know the frequency ω_{max}, unless it's the bandwidth frequency ω_{BW}, which I don't think it is. My text...
10. ### Electrical Engineering - Control Systems - Design Via Frequency Respon

For a lead network G_{c}(s) = \frac{1}{β}\frac{s + \frac{1}{T}}{s + \frac{1}{βT}} I'm still unsure where \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} came from though. There's a standard representation for the compensator C(s)? Edit 1: From the characteristic equation 1 + kG(s)C(s) = 0 kG(s)C(s) = -1 kG(s) = -...

13. ### Control Systems Engineering - Signal Flow Graphs

Hi, I seem to be having some issues going from state space representation of a system to signal flow graph representation. My troubles seem to be, if I have something like this \frac{d}{dt}x_{1}(t) = v_{1}(t) In state space representation I list functions to which the derivatives are as...
14. ### Digital Logic - Tri State Buffers

Homework Statement I'm trying to implement the function F = A'BC+ABD+AB'D' using 3 tri-state buffers. Apparently I'm supposed to connect the buffers together and use C, D, and D' as inputs to buffers. I'm supposed to pass A and B through logic to get the input signals. I'm supposed to...
15. ### Buck dc-dc Converter w/Control System Analysis

Well you've stumped me to stay the least, and I'm a bit concerned by suggesting that the problem can't be solved I did not realize that I could think of the transistor and the diode as a switch. This may lead me in the right direction. I'm not exactly sure why it could be considered a switch...

19. ### Transfer Function to State Space Calculator Program

Hi, Does anyone know a program that I can put on my TI-84 calculator that will allow me to input any transfer function and get the state space representation of the system or the other way around. For example G(s) = \frac{\sum(K_{i}s^{i})}{\sum(P_{i}s^{i})} The calculator prompts you...

Why can you let v_{in} be anything you want?
28. ### Electrical Engineering - FET Common Source Configuration with Load

This is starting to make sense, but why do you take Vin = 0?
29. ### Electrical Engineering - FET Common Source Configuration with Load

Gain is the output voltage divided by the AC input? I solved for the AC input voltage and got 6.0036 volts. Oh I need the DC voltage V_S and use that value for V_GS alright. But wait, In order to find V_{G} I just use the DC schematic diagram and get V_{G} = \frac{R_{G}v_{in}}{R_{sig} +...
30. ### Electrical Engineering - FET Common Source Configuration with Load

Wait really I can make up v_{in} to be anything I want? So I can just go with one volt? That seems weird, I was able to solve for it some how. By v_{s} you mean the the AC voltage? It's just zero because it's connected to ground in the small signal equivalent circuit.
