Resumen (en)

This paper presents a review of Laplace Transform (LT) applications in the analysis of linear dynamic systems. Is presented the importance of the transforms; the definition of the Transform; theorems and properties with applications and finally, the use of LT for the calculation of: steady state error, transfer functions, ordinary differential equations solution, frequency responses, signal analysis and block diagrams. The modeling and operational analysis with LT of a multipurpose reactor is proposed as a didactic situation for academic purposes.
