Let t he frequency where t he angle plot crosses - 180° b e w p ( the p hase c rossover f requency). Observe t hat a t W p , t he gain is 0.5 or - 6 dB. This shows t hat t he gain K will have to double (to value 48) to have unity gain, which is t he verge of instability. For this reason we say t hat t he system has a gain margin a M = 6 dB. On t he o ther hand, if W g is t he frequency where t he gain is u nity or 0 dB, (the g ain c rossover f requency), t hen a t t his frequency, t he open-loop phase is - 157.5°.

Thus, the system has a phase margin of (J M = 22.5°. Clearly, t he gain a nd phase margins are measures of relative stability of t he system. Figure 7.lOc shows t hat t he Nyquist plot of K G(s)H(s) crosses t he real axis a t - 0.5 for K = 24. I f we double K t o a value 48, t he m agnitude of every point doubles (but t he p hase is unchanged). This step expands t he Nyquist plot by a factor 2. Hence, for K = 48, t he N yquist plot lies on t he real axis a t - 1; t hat is, K G(jw)H(jw) = - 1, a nd t he s ystem becomes unstable. For K > 48, t he p lot crosses a nd goes beyond t he p oint - 1. T hus, t he critical point - 1 lies inside the curve; t hat is, t he curve encircles t he critical point - 1. W hen t he Nyquist plot of a n open-loop transfer function encircles t he critical point - 1, t he corresponding closed-loop system becomes unstable. This statement, roughly speaking, is t he wellknown N yquist c riterion i n a simplified form.t For the Nyquist plot in Fig. 7.lOb (for K = 24), the gain will have t o d ouble before the system becomes unstable. Thus, t he gain margin is 2 (6 dB)in this case. In general, if t he Nyquist plot crosses t he negative real axis a t - a"" t hen t he gain margin is l /a",. Similarly, if - 7r + (Jm is t he angle a t which t he N yquist plot crosses t he u nit circle, t he phase margin is ( Jm' In t he p resent case, (Jm = 22.5°. In order t o p rotect a system from instability because o f v ariations in s ystem parameters (or in t he e nvironment), t he s ystem should be designed with reasonable gain a nd p hase margins. Small margins indicate t hat t he poles of t he closed-loop system are in t he LHP, b ut t oo close to t he j w axis. T he t ransient response of such systems will have a large overshoot ( PO). On t he o ther hand, very large (positive) gain a nd phase margins may indicate a sluggish system. Generally, a gain margin higher t han 6 dB a nd a phase margin of a bout 30° t o 60° a re considered desirable. Design specifications for transient performance are ofte...
