SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol. Type of system=number of poles at origin.

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. With positive feedback, system gain reduces.

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. For system to be stable, Gain Margin in dB and Phase Margin in degree must be +ve.

NOTE: For unstable system the signs of gain margin and phase margin are always different or they can both be negative.

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. steady state response=lim┬(s→0)〖sC(s)=〗 lim┬(s→0)= s×(2(s+3))/((s+2)(s+4))×1/s=3/4

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. System with Unity Gain margin and ‘0’ Phase angle is Oscillatory in nature.
