ENS6160: SIGNAL AND SYSTEMGiven the accelerometer below:Figure 1: (a) Piezoelectric accelerometer attached to a large body. (b) Accelerometerrepresentation using mass, spring and damper.Section 1: Mathematical Analysis of SystemFrom figure 1 (b) the free body diagram is given in figure 2 below:Figure 2: FBDDeriving equation of motionUsing Hook’s law spring mass is given by:Spring force:Fs=kz(t)Damping Force,Fd=cdz(t)dtForce due to motion of the massd2x(t)dtFrom newton’s law of motion:f=ma(i)md2z(t)dt=cdz(t)dtkz(t)+d2x(t)dt(ii)Rearranging equation (ii) gives:md2z(t)dt+cdz(t)dt+kz(t)=d2x(t)dt(iii)
The accelerometer is a damped second order system. It can be expressed inhomogenous second order differential equation as given in equation (iv) below.d2z(t)dt+2ζωndz(t)dt+ωn2kz(t)=0(iv)Where isωnnatural frequency ofPiezoelectric accelerometersystem andζis dampingratio of the same system. At equilibrium pointd2x(t)dt=0,thus, equation (iii) can bewritten as: (iii) can be written as:d2z(t)dt+cdz(t)mdt+kz(t)m=0(v)From equation (iv) and (v):Natural frequency of the systemωn2=(mk)1ωn=km(vii)Damping ratio:2ζωn=(mc)12ζkm=(mc)1Thus,ζ=c2km(viii)Assumingz(t)=Aest,then:dz(t)dt=Asestd2z(t)dt=As2est(ix)Inserting equation (ix) in equation (v) becomes:Aest(s2+cms+km)=0SinceAest0,Then characteristic equation is therefore given in equation (x) belows2+cms+km=0(x)Eigenvalue are:s1=(cm)+(cm)24(km)2
