Abstract:

The rise time of the unit step response of a second order system is shown to be improved by means of a feedback loop consisting of an exponentially time-varying gain. Analysis of the proposed system essentially consists of determining the solution of a linear differential equation with time-varying coefficients. A good approximation to the solution is readily obtained by the application of Laplace Transform Theory to Picards Theorems on Existence and the Method of Successive Approximations. Author
