1 ME6402, Nonlinear Control Systems • Motivation • Phase Portraits • Singular Points • Constructing Phase Portraits • Phase Portrait of Linear Systems Outline What is Phase Plane Analysis (PPA)? ± Phase plane analysis is a graphical method for studying 2nd order systems. ± PPA shows the free response of the system in the phase-plane for different initial conditions. ± PPA is an old method; it was introduced over a century ago by mathematicians such as Poincare.
