Note 1 to entry: The transfer function of a dead-time element is given by
|Tt||is the dead time;|
|s||is the complex variable of the Laplace transform;|
|U(s)||is the input transform;|
|V(s)||is the output transform.|
Note 2 to entry: Transportation lags of mass, energy or information are described by dead-time elements.
Note 3 to entry: This entry was numbered 351-28-42 in IEC 60050-351:2006.
