Abstract

In the field of process control it is desirable to study dynamic characteristics such as frequency response and distortion when determining just how equipment is to be controlled. Pneumatic controllers, transmitters, control valves, etc., all have dynamic behaviors which can be expressed mathematically as transfer functions. Each component plays an important role in determining the entire system behavior. Frequency response is one technique used in developing a component’s transfer function. By driving a device with a sinusoidal signal of fixed amplitude and frequency the output amplitude and phase shift are measured and compared with that of the input. Varying the frequency of the input at a fixed amplitude generates frequency response data which identify the device’s dynamic behavior.
