Unformatted text preview: Summary – Forced Response of an Underdamped 2nd order System to a Step Input The forced response of a second ­order system to a unit step input: 2 2 + 2ζω n y + ω n y = Kω n h ( t ) y has been seen to take on the following form: ⎧ ⎛ ⎞⎫ ζω ⎪ ⎪ y ( t ) = K ⎨1 − e−ζω n t ⎜ cosω d t + n sinω d t ⎟ ⎬ ωd ⎝ ⎠⎪ ⎪ ⎩ ⎭ where ω d = ω n 1 − ζ 2 . This response is dictated by the location of the poles of the transfer function for this system: p1, 2 = −ζω n ± jω d We have seen that there are three important loci of poles in the complex plane: • Constant damping ratio: radial lines from the origin at an angle of φ . Moving the system poles along these radial lines represents constant %OS . • Constant settling time: straight line parallel to the imaginary axis. Moving the system poles along these lines represents constant 2% settling time, t s = 4 / ζω n • Constant undamped natural frequency: circular arc centered at the origin and with a radius of ω n . Moving the system poles around these circular arcs represents constant undamped natural frequency ω n imag{ p} ωn constant damping ratio, ζ ωd φ φ = cos −1 (ζ ) real { p} constant ω n constant settling time, t s −ω n ...
