1. For a cascaded tanks (cross sectional areasA1 and A2) shown in Figure 1, (a) Develop a complete bond graph model. (b) Provide constitutive laws for all components. (c) Write a set of state equation in the canonical format [à = Ax + Bu] where x =[V1 V2]T. And Vị and V2 are volumes of fluid contained in each tank. (d) Determine a transfer function H1(s)/Qin(s). Assume the fluid is incompressible and connecting pipe of the two tanks is negligibly short compared to tank height. (e) Select one system parameter that is the most influential to hi's steady state value.
