Design using the root locus technique
Consider the closed loop system

𝑅 𝑠 𝐸 𝑠 𝑈𝑝(𝑠) 𝑌 𝑠
+- 𝐺𝑐 (𝑠) 𝐺(𝑠)

##  The plant 𝐺 𝑠 may not be capable of meeting the specifications.

 It is expensive and inconvenient to alter the plant 𝐺(𝑠) in many cases. A Proportional controller does not
always achieve specifications.

 We need a compensator 𝐺𝑐 𝑠 to compensate for the shortcomings of the plant in meeting specifications.

 In Module 7, we discussed the effects of adding poles and zeros to the open-loop transfer function,
specifically on the Root Locus of the system.
The Root Locus based design involves the addition of poles and zeros to the open-loop transfer function,
such that the Root Locus passes through the desired pole locations.

Transient response specification
 We specify the desired transient performance of a closed-loop control system through the
standard second order system.

 We reshape the root locus so that the closed-loop system has a pair of dominant closed loop
poles, in which case, the specifications are closely met.

 These specifications are translated to the positions of dominant closed-loop poles −𝜁𝜔𝑛 ± 𝑗𝜔𝑛 1 − 𝜁 2.

 The final design must ensure the dominance of the closed-loop poles nearest to the 𝑗𝜔 axis.

Recap
Module 7 :- Effects of adding a zero to the open-loop transfer function
 The addition of a zero to an open-loop transfer function has the effect of pulling the Root
Locus to the left. This improves the relative stability.

 The effect of the zero is prominent when it is close to the imaginary axis.

 We begin with a third order system and add a zero at different locations on the real axis to
illustrate these points.

The open-loop transfer function with the compensator is 𝐺𝑐 𝑠 𝐺 𝑠 . For the point 𝑠𝑑 to
be on the root-locus, it must satisfy the angle criterion.

## We see the following major effects

• 𝑦1 𝑡 is the step response of 𝐺 𝑠 .
 Increased overshoot • 𝑦2 𝑡 = 𝑦1 𝑡
 No significant change in the settling time • 𝑦 𝑡 is the step response of 𝐺 ′ 𝑠 .
 Faster response
 As 𝑎 → ∞, the contribution of the zero to the system response decreases and we get back the
original system behaviour.
