- If the system is of type 0 at low frequencies will be level.
- A type 0 system, (that is, a system without a pole at the origin,)will have a static position error, Kp, equal to

- If the system is of type 1 (a single pole at the origin) it will have a slope of -20 dB/dec at low frequencies
- A type 1 system will have a static velocity error, Kv, equal to the value of the -20 dB/dec line where it crosses 1 radian per second

- If the system is of type 2 ( a double pole at the origin) it willhave a slope of -40 dB/dec at low frequencies
- A type 2 system has a static acceleration error,Ka, equal to the value of the -40 dB/dec line where it crosses 1 radian per second

- We have seen that the open loop transfer function, has profound influences on the closed loop response
- The key concept in loop shaping designs is that there is some ideal open loop transfer (B(s)) that will provide the design specifications that we require of our closed loop system
- Loop shaping is a trial and error process
- To perform loop shaping we can used either the root locus plots or the Bode plots depending on the type of response that we wish to achieve
- We have already considered an important form of loop shaping as the PID controller

- The open loop Bode plot is the natural design tool when designing in the frequency domain.
- For the frequency domain, the common specifications are bandwidth, gain cross over frequency, gain margin, resonant frequency, resonant frequency gain, phase margin, static errors and high frequency roll off.

Poles bend the magnitude and phase down

Zeros bend the magnitude and the phase up

- The compensator with a transfer functionis called a lead compensator if a<b and a lag compensator if a>b
- The lead and the lag compensator can be used together
- Note: the compensator does add a steady state gain ofthat needs to be accounted for in the final design
- There are analytical methods for designing these compensators (See Ogata or Franklin and Powell)

- The lead compensator is used to improve stability and to improve transient characteristics.
- The lead compensator can be designed using either frequency response or root locus methods
- Usually, the transient characteristics are better addressed using the root locus methods
- Addressing excessive phase lag is better addressed using the frequency methods

- The pole of the system is usually limited by physical limitations of the components use to implement the compensator
- In the lead compensator, the zero and pole are usually separated in frequency from about .4 decades to 1.5 decades depending on the design

- Lag compensators are used to improve steady state characteristics where the transient characteristics are adequate and to attenuate high frequency noise
- In order to not change the transient characteristics, the zero and pole are located near the origin on the root locus plot
- The starting point for the design on a root locus is to start with a pole location at about s = -0.001 and then locate the pole as needed for the desired effect

- In order to not give up too much phase, the zero and pole are located away from the phase margin frequency

Note that the lag compensator causes

a drop in the magnitude and phase

This could be useful in reducing bandwidth, and improving gain margin; however it might reduce phase margin

- Sensitivity is an evaluation of how the system responds to various signals compared to the design signal
- In general, we want the system to respond to the reference input
- We do not want the system to respond to noises and other signals that do not contribute to the accuracy of the desired output

- We want our system designed such that the disturbances to the system are attenuated
- Harold S. Black gave us the answer: negative feedback

Disturbances with

than the cross over

frequency are

attenuated while

frequencies higher

would be passed

Fortunately, most load

disturbances are low

frequency and often

can be treated as step

inputs

- We would also like noise rejection
- Noise is most often high frequency signals caused by the sensors used to measure
- Noise is presented as a result of the feedback terms
- We do not have noise as defined here in an open system

- In the closed loop error, noise is multiplied by T, the complementary sensitivity function,
- In a system without a pre-filter, this is the transfer function
- For this reason high frequency roll-off is important

- Systems with right hand side poles and zeros are inherently hard to control
- For a system with right hand side poles, pk, Bode showed that
- Improvements in one frequency region are met with deteriorations in another frequency region
- Sometimes called the waterbed effect
