K G(s) + - MECH 431 Frequency response Slide 2 Introduction Frequency response refers to the steady state response of a system to a sinusoidal input. • In frequency-response methods, we vary the frequency of the input signal over a certain range and study the resulting response. • The information that is obtained from the frequency response is different from the information we get from the root locus. Both methods complement each other.

K G(s) + - MECH 431 Frequency response Slide 3 Introduction • The Nyquist stability criterion enables us to investigate both the absolute and relative stabilities of linear closed-loop systems from a knowledge of their open-loop frequency response characteristics. • Frequency-response tests are in general simple and can be made accurately by use of readily available sinusoidal signal generators and accurate measurement equipment.

K G(s) + - MECH 431 Frequency response Slide 4 Introduction • Often the transfer functions of complicated components can be determined experimentally by frequency- response tests. • In designing a closed-loop system, we adjust the frequency-response characteristic of the open-loop transfer function by varying several design criteria in order to obtain appropriate transient-response characteristics for the system.

K G(s) + - MECH 431 Frequency response Slide 5 Obtaining steady-state outputs G(s) • It will be shown next that after waiting until steady- state, the frequency response can be calculated by replacing s in the closed loop transfer function by jw . The transfer function becomes: Phase shift between input sine and output sine Amplitude ratio
