FirstOrder Linear System Transient Response
Hey there,
I am trying to solve a problem of first order equation which is
A temperature sensor has a first order response with τ = 18 seconds. The calibration curve of the sensor is presented in Figure 1. Graph the sensor response when it is exposed to the temperature profile shown in Figure 2. Present the senor voltage as a function of time. Sensor has been kept at 15 °C for a long time before the operation.
[itex]\tau[/itex]dy(t)/dt + y(t) = K
Figure 1 & 2 are attached
where [itex]\tau[/itex] =18 and K is given by an equation 5+t/3 (deduce from figure 1)
I know that first order equation’s answer is the addition of two general solutions: homogenous (natural response of the equation) and particularintegral (generated by the step function there
T(total) = T(homogenous) + T(particularintegral)
T(homogenous)= Ae^t/5
T(particularintegral)= I am not sure how to do the integral of Ae^t/5 ... Any Idea's
So if someone can help me with the T(particularintegral) then i would be able to find the value of A by putting the initial condition of T(0)=5V
