Electrical Analogies of Mechanical Systems | Control Systems - Electrical Engineering (EE) PDF Download

Two systems are said to be analogous to each other if the following two conditions are satisfied.

  • The two systems are physically different
  • Differential equation modelling of these two systems are same

Electrical systems and mechanical systems are two physically different systems. There are two types of electrical analogies of translational mechanical systems. Those are force voltage analogy and force current analogy.

Force Voltage Analogy

  • In force voltage analogy, the mathematical equations of translational mechanical system are compared with mesh equations of the electrical system.
  • Consider the following translational mechanical system as shown in the following figure.
