The meaning of the parameters !n and  are explained in sections 3.6.4 and 3.6.3. 3.6.2 Roots of the characteristic equation and their relationship to damping in second-order systems As discussed in Section 3.1, the transient response of a system is independent of the input. Thus for transient response analysis, the system input can be considered to be zero, and equation (3.41) can be written as (as2  bs  c)Xo (s)  0 If Xo (s) T 0, then as2  bs  c  0 (3:44) //SYS21/D:/B&H3B2/ACE/REVISES(08-08-01)/ACEC03.3D ± 50 ± [35±62/28] 9.8.2001 2:26PM 50 Advanced Control Engineering Table 3.4 Transient behaviour of a second-order system Discriminant Roots Transient response type b > 4ac s1 and s2 real and unequal (Àve) Overdamped Transient Response b2  4ac s1 and s2 real and equal (Àve) Critically Damped Transient Response b2 < 4ac s1 and s2 complex conjugate of the form: s1 , s2  À Æ j!
