Unformatted text preview: 1 Review: Bode Plots H(s) , the Laplace transform of h(t) , is called the transfer function of a system. It leads directly to the frequency response ) ( j H by replacing s by j . In general, the transfer function takes on the following form: 1 1 1 1 .. .. ) ( b s b s a s a s a s H n n n m m m m + + + + + + = This can be rewritten as: ) )...( ( ) ( ) )...( ( ) ( ) ( 2 1 2 1 n m m p s p s p s z s z s z s a s H = Here, p i are called the poles of the system and z i are the zeros . Important remarks: 1. Poles and zeros always appear in complex conjugates pairs. The reason is that the a i and b i coefficients in the equation above can only be real numbers for practical systems (as they are the result of elements such as capacitor, inductors, resistors).

We will discuss this further in the chapter on feedback....
