10/12/04 ESE 441 3 Root Locus Method Closed-loop response depends on the location of closed-loop poles. If system has a variable design parameter (e.g., a simple gain adjustment or the location of compensation zero), then the closed-loop pole locations depend on the value of the design parameter. The root locus of a system is the plot of the paths (loci) of all possible closed loop poles as the design parameter takes on a range of possible values.

10/12/04 ESE 441 4 Root Locus Method (cont.) The poles that provide the desired closed-loop response are selected and the proper value of the design parameter is thereby established. The closed-loop poles are the roots of the system's characteristic equation. Since finding the roots of polynomials of degree higher than 3 is laborious, graphical aids were devised in the late 1940s to help construct the root loci. Recently, computer-aided design tools such as Matlab provide a convenient computer solution. The older, graphical aids are still relevant since the ability to quickly sketch root loci by hand is invaluable in making fundamental decisions early in the design process and in checking Matlab results.

The path of a closed-loop pole on the s-plane is called a branch of the root locus. No matter what we pick k to be,
