Hence, once a signal is applied, no m atter how small and how short in duration, it comes back t o reinforce the input undiminished, which further passes t o t he o utput, a nd is fed back again and again and again. In essence, t he signal perpetuates itself forever. This perpetuation, even when the input ceases t o exist, is precisely the symptom of instability. 6 .7-1 Analysis o f a Simple Control System O __ _ G T - 1 + GH = 20,000 1 + 200 = 99.5 Observe t hat 100% variation in the forward gain G causes only 0.5% variation in the feedback amplifier gain T .

The input ()i is the desired angular position o f t he object, which can be set a t a ny given value. T he a ctual angular position ()o o f the object (the o utput) is measured by a potentiometer whose wiper is m ounted on t he o utput shaft. The difference between the o utput ()o a nd the input ()i is amplified; t he amplified o utput, which is p roportional t o ()o - ()i, is applied to the motor input.
