Chapter 01: Block Diagram Reduction

In this course we explore what Block Diagram Reduction means, and also learn its importance.


The block diagram is to represent a control system in diagram form. In other words, a block diagram is the practical representation of a control system. It is not always convenient to derive the entire transfer function of a complex control system in a single function. It is easier and better to derive the transfer function of the control element connected to the system, separately. The transfer function of each element is then represented by a block and they are then connected together with the path of signal flow. For simplifying a complex control system, block diagrams are used. Each element of the control system is represented with a block and the block is the symbolic representation of the transfer function of that element. A complete control system can be represented with a required number of interconnected blocks.
