## Homework Statement

The first order ramp unit response is shown in the graph below. Determine:

1. The transfer function.

2. Plot the error function e(t) then determine its maximum magnitude and the time

## Homework Equations

G(s)=(1/T)/(S+1/T) ... G(s): Standard first order T.F, , T (or tau) is the time constant.

T is the time to reach 63,2% of the final output value.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to solve this if the input was the step unit as shown in the graph:

But that is not my case in ramp unit. How can I get the time constant while the curve is going upward forever?

The only thing I knew that if I plot the error function, then its steady state value will be T (tau or time constatnt). Any help?
