This set of Network Theory Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Hurwitz Polynomials”.

1. The denominator polynomial in a transfer function may not have any missing terms between the highest and the lowest degree, unless?

a) all odd terms are missing

b) all even terms are missing

c) all even or odd terms are missing

d) all even and odd terms are missing

View Answer

Explanation: All the quotients in the polynomial P(s) are positive. The denominator polynomial in a transfer function may not have any missing terms between the highest and the lowest degree, unless all even or odd terms are missing.For example P(s) = s

^{3}+3s is Hurwitz because all quotient terms are positive and all even terms are missing.

2. The roots of the odd and even parts of a Hurwitz polynomial P (s) lie on ____________

a) right half of s plane

b) left half of s-plane

c) on jω axis

d) on σ axis

View Answer

Explanation: The roots of the odd and even parts of a Hurwitz polynomial P (s) lie on jω axis not on right half of s plane or on left half of s-plane.

3. If the polynomial P (s) is either even or odd, then the roots of P (s) lie on __________

a) on σ axis

b) on jω axis

c) left half of s-plane

d) right half of s plane

View Answer

Explanation: If the polynomial P (s) is either even or odd, then the roots of P (s) lie on jω axis not on right half of s plane or on left half of s-plane.

4. If the ratio of the polynomial P (s) and its derivative gives a continued fraction expansion with ________ coefficients, then the polynomial P (s) is Hurwitz.

a) all negative

b) all positive

c) positive or negative

d) positive and negative

View Answer

Explanation: If the ratio of the polynomial P (s) and its derivative P

^{‘}(s) gives a continued fraction expansion with all positive coefficients, then the polynomial P (s) is Hurwitz. If all the quotients in the continued fraction expansion are positive, the polynomial P(s) is positive.

5. Consider the polynomial P(s)=s^{4}+3s^{2}+2. The given polynomial P (s) is Hurwitz.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: P(s)=s

^{4}+3s

^{2}+2 => P

^{‘}(s)=4s

^{3}+6s

After doing the continued fraction expansion, we get all the quotients as positive. So, the polynomial P (s) is Hurwitz.

6. When s is real, the driving point impedance function is _________ function and the driving point admittance function is _________ function.

a) real, complex

b) real, real

c) complex, real

d) complex, complex

View Answer

Explanation: When s is real, the driving point impedance function is real function and the driving point admittance function is real function because the quotients of the polynomials P(s) and Q(s) are real. When Z(s) is determined from the impedances of the individual branches, the quotients are obtained by adding together, multiplying or dividing the branch parameters which are real.

7. The poles and zeros of driving point impedance function and driving point admittance function lie on?

a) left half of s-plane only

b) right half of s-plane only

c) left half of s-plane or on imaginary axis

d) right half of s-plane or on imaginary axis

View Answer

Explanation: The poles and zeros of driving point impedance function and driving point admittance function lie on left half of s-plane or on imaginary axis of the s-plane..

8. For real roots of s_{k}, all the quotients of s in s^{2}+ω_{k}^{2} of the polynomial P (s) are __________

a) negative

b) non-negative

c) positive

d) non-positive

View Answer

Explanation: For real roots of s

_{k}, all the quotients of s in s

^{2}+ω

_{k}

^{2}of the polynomial P (s) are non-negative. So by multiplying all factors in P(s) we find that all quotients are positive.

9. The real parts of the driving point function Z (s) and Y (s) are?

a) positive and zero

b) positive

c) zero

d) positive or zero

View Answer

Explanation: The real parts of the driving point impedance function Z (s) and driving point admittance function Y (s) are positive or zero.

10. For the complex zeros to appear in conjugate pairs the poles of the network function are ____ and zeros of the network function are ____________

a) complex, complex

b) complex, real

c) real, real

d) real, complex

View Answer

Explanation: P(s) and Q(s) are real when s is real. So the poles of the network function are real and zeros of the network function are real, the complex zeros to appear in conjugate pairs.
