Abstract:

A summary is given of techniques and concepts useful in the analysis of linear feedback systems these procedures are then correlated and integrated into a unified analysis method. The central feedback system analysis problem discussed is that of finding complete closed-loop system characteristics from a knowledge of the open-loop transfer function. Several forms of graphical representation for open-loop transfer functions, including pole-zero plots and generalized Gs logarithmic diagrams, are considered. The use of these graphical forms in generalized root-locus and decomposition techniques to find closed-loop transfer functions is illustrated with examples. The various feedback system analysis procedures are shown to have a common theoretical connection and to be supplementary techniques when used in an integrated manner to attack specific problems.
