Fig.1, shows the block diagram representation of a control system. The system in block A has an impulse response $${h_A}(t) = {e^{ - t}}\,u(t)$$. The system in block B has an impulse response $${h_B}(t) = {e^{ - 2t}}\,u(t)$$. The block 'k' amplifies its input by a factor k. For the overall system with input x(t) and output y(t)

(a) Find the transfer function $${{Y(s)} \over {X(s)}}$$, when k=1

(b) Find the impulse response, when k = 0

(c) Find the value of k for which the system becomes unstable.

$$$\left[ {\matrix{ {Note:u(t)\, \equiv \,0} & {t\, \le \,0} \cr {\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\, \equiv 1} & {t\, > \,0} \cr } } \right]$$$

Consider the following interconnection of the three LTI systems (Fig.1). $${h_1}(t)$$ , $${h_2}(t)$$ and $${h_3}(t)$$ are the impulse responses of these three LTI systems with $${H_1}(\omega )$$, $${H_2}(\omega )$$, and $${H_3}(\omega )$$ as their respective Fourier transforms. Given that $${h_1}\,(t)\, = \,{d \over {dt}}\left[ {{{\sin ({\omega _0}t)} \over {2\,\pi \,t}}} \right],{H_2}(\omega ) = \exp \left( {{{ - j2\pi \omega } \over {{\omega _0}}}} \right)$$

$${h_3}\,(t)\, = u(t)\,and\,x(t)\, = \,\sin \,2\,{\omega _0}t\, + \,\cos \,({\omega _0}t/2),$$ find the output y(t).

$${h_3}\,(t)\, = u(t)\,and\,x(t)\, = \,\sin \,2\,{\omega _0}t\, + \,\cos \,({\omega _0}t/2),$$ find the output y(t).
