CHAPTER III LAPLACE TRANSFORM
Process Control CHAPTER III LAPLACE TRANSFORM

The Laplace transform of a function f(t) is defined as;
In the application of Laplace transform variable time is eliminated and a new domain is introduced. In the modeling of dynamic systems differential equations are solved by using Laplace transform.

Properties of Laplace Transform
The Laplace transform contains no information about f(t) for t<0. (Since t represents time this is not a limitation) Laplace transform is defined with an improper integral. Therefore the required conditions are the function f(t) should be piecewise continuous the integral should have a finite value; i.e., the function f(t) does not increase with time faster than e -st decreases with time.

Laplace transform operator transforms a function of variable t to a function of variable s. e.g., T(t) becomes T(s) The Laplace transform is a linear operator. Tables for Laplace transforms are available. In those tables inverse transforms are also given.

Solution of Differential equations by Laplace Transform
For the solution of linear, ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients Laplace Transforms are applied. The procedure involves: Take the Laplace Transform of both sides of the equation. Solve the resulting equation for the Laplace transform of the unknown function. i.e., evaluate x(s). Find the function x(t), which has the Laplace Transform obtained in step 2.

Example: Solve the following equation. Solution:

Example (Repeated factors)
Solve the equation for which Laplace transform is given. Heaviside expansion rule can not be used for A, because the denominator of coefficient B becomes infinity.
