Homework Help: Transfer function with Disturbance

  1. May 13, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the steady-state error due to a disturbance Td(s) = 1/s.

    Set R(s) = 0.

    if given a system:


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I need Y(s)/Td(s). To do this I must find Y(s) in terms of the transfer function Y(s)/R(s) which I have obtained. This gives me an expression for Y(s) in terms of G(s), Gc(s), and R(s).


    Now I must solve for Y(s)/Td(s).

    If Td(s) = 1/s, then I should just multiply Y(s) by s and be done with it. However, the book gets a totally different answer.

    specifically, I am not sure how R(s) disappears along with the rest of the numerator in the result.

    Thanks for your time.

    Why? R(s) = 0!

    Your transfer function is valid for the R(s) input only.
    The function referred to the Td(s) input looks different!
