The precise value of the friction coefficient is unknown, as is the slope angle, so we model them as a disturbance. Neglect all masses and inertias in the system except for the block mass m. Also neglect the field time constant of the field-controlled motor. Feedback of the block speed v is provided by a sensor that measures the pulley rotational speed, which is directly related to v by v = R.

a. Obtain the equation of motion of the block speed v, with the voltage vm, friction force F =, and the weight component Wx = as the inputs.

b. Draw a block diagram representing the control system, with the command input vr, the output v, and the disturbance D = F + Wx. Model the speed sensor as directly sensing the speed. Show the necessary transfer functions for each block in the diagram.
