# Control Systems Questions and Answers – Correlation between Time and Frequency Response

This set of Control Systems Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Correlation between Time and Frequency Response”.

1. The forward path transfer function of a unity feedback system is given by G(s) = 100/(s2+10s+100). The frequency response of this system will exhibit the resonance peak at:
a) 10 rad/sec
b) 0.866 rad/sec
c) 0.707 rad/sec
d) 5rad/sec
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: G(s) = 100/(s2+10s+100)
wn = 10rad/sec
G = 10/2wn =0.5
wr = 0.707 rad/s.

2. Assertion (A): All the systems which exhibit overshoot in transient response will also exhibit resonance peak in frequency response.
Reason (R): Large resonance peak in frequency response corresponds to a large overshoot in transient response.
a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
b) Both A and R are true and R is not the correct explanation of A
c) A is true but R is false
d) A is false but R is true

Answer: a
Explanation: For G<1/√2 frequency parameters ex Mr resonant peak and time response parameters eg. Mp peak overshoot are well correlated. For G>1/√2 the resonant peak Mr does not exist and the correlation breaks down. This is not a serious problem as for this range of G, the step response oscillations are well-damped and Mp is hardly perceptible.

3. The transfer function of a system is given by Y(s)/X(s) = e−0.1s/1+s. If x(t) is 0.5sint, then the phase angle between the output and the input will be:
a) -39.27°
b) -45°
c) -50.73°
d) -90°
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Phase angle = -tan−1-0.1*180°/π
w =1 rad/sec
Phase angle =-50.73°.

4. The critical value of gain for the system is 40. The system is operating at a gain of 20. The gain margin of the system is :
a) 2 dB
b) 3 dB
c) 6 dB
d) 4 dB
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: G.M. =Kmarginal/Kdesire
Kmarginal =40
Kdesire = 20
G.M. =2
G.M. (dB) = 6dB.

5. The phase angle of the system G(s) =s+5/s2+4s+9;varies between
a) 0° and 90°
b) 0° and -90°
c) 0° and -180°
d) -90° and -180°
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Phase = tan−1−11w−w3/45−2.

6. The open loop transfer function of a system is :
G(s) H(s) =K/ (1+s) (1+2s) (1+3s)
The phase crossover frequency wpc is:
a) √2
b) 1
c) Zero
d) √3
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: angle =-180°
3wpc/1-2wpc2 =-3wpc
wpc = 1 rad/sec.

7. Which one of the following statements is correct for gain margin and phase margin of two closed-loop systems having loop functions G(s) H(s) and exp(-s) G(s) H(s)?
a) Both gain and phase margins of the two systems will be identical
b) Both gain and phase margins of G(s) H(s) will be more
c) Gain margins of the two systems are the same but phase margins of G(s) H(s) will be more
d) Phase margins of the two systems are the same but gain margin of G(s) H(s) will be less
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: The factor exp (-st) is the cause of the term transportation lag (time delay). The effect of e-st term is simply to rotate each point of the G(s) H(s) plot by an angle wT rad in the clockwise direction. So the phase margin of the system reduces as T increases. But since |e-s| =1, therefore the gain margins of both the systems are the same.

8. In a feedback control system, phase margin(PM) is
1. Directly proportional to G
2. Inversely proportional to G
3. Independent of G
4. Zero when G =0
Which of the above statements are correct?
a) 1 and 2
b) 2 and 3
c) 3 and 4
d) 1 and 4
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: For small values of G, PM is directly proportional to G and at G=0. phase margin(PM)=0.

9. The gain margin in dBs of a unity feedback control system whose open loop transfer function, G(s) H(s) =1/s(s+1) is
a) 0
b) 1
c) -1
d) ∞
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: wpc = ∞
Magnitude of the transfer function =0
Gain Margin =∞ dB.

10. The loop transfer function of a system is given by G(s) H(s) =10e-Ls/s. The phase crossover frequency is 5rad/s. The value of the dead time L is
a) π/20
b) π/10
c) -π/20
d) Zero
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: – π/2-180/π*L*5 = -π
5L =π/2
L =π/10.
