Fall 2007 16.31 4–2 Frequency Stability Tests • Want tests on the loop transfer function L ( s ) = G c ( s ) G ( s ) that can be performed to establish stability of the closed-loop system G cl ( s ) = G c ( s ) G ( s ) 1 + G c ( s ) G ( s ) – Easy to determine using a root locus. – How do this in the frequency domain? i.e., what is the simple equivalent of the statement “does root locus go into RHP”? • Intuition : All points on the root locus have the properties that L ( s ) = ± 180 ◦ and | L ( s ) | = 1 – So at the point of neutral stability (i.e., imaginary axis crossing), we know that these conditions must hold for s = j ω – So for neutral stability in the Bode plot (assume stable plant), must have that L ( j ω ) = ± 180 ◦ and | L ( j ω ) | = 1 – So for most systems we would expect to see | L ( j ω ) | < 1 at the frequencies ω π for which L ( j ω π ) = ± 180 ◦ • Note that L ( j ω ) = ± 180 ◦ and | L ( j ω ) | = 1 corresponds to L ( j ω ) = − 1 + 0 j September 3, 2007 Cite as: Jonathan How, course materials for 16.31 Feedback Control Systems, Fall 2007.
