K G(s) + - MECH 431 Root Locus Analysis Slide 2 Introduction The Root Locus (RL) is the locus (i.e., location) of roots of the characteristic equation of the closed-loop system as a specific parameter (usually, gain K ) is varied from 0 to infinity. The RL shows the contributions of each open-loop pole or zero to the locations of the closed-loop poles.
K G(s) + - MECH 431 Root Locus Analysis Slide 3 Introduction The RL method is valuable when designing a linear control system since it indicates the manner in which the open-loop poles and zeros should be modified so that the response meets system performance requirements. By using the RL, it is possible to determine the value of the loop gain K that makes the damping ratio of the dominant closed loop poles as prescribed.

K G(s) + - MECH 431 Root Locus Analysis Slide 5 Angle and magnitude conditions The values of s that satisfy both the angle and magnitude conditions are the roots of the characteristic equation (i.e., closed loop poles). A locus of the points in the complex domain satisfying the angle condition alone is the root locus. The roots of the characteristic equation corresponding to a given gain value are found from the magnitude condition.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
