THE LAPLACE transform method for analyzing the transient response of feedback systems is laborious.1 Synthesis by this method is almost impracticable. The graphical methods which were developed by Nyquist, Bode, Evans, and others allowed the analysis and synthesis of linear feedback systems to be made with considerably less effort.2,3,4 Methods using infinite series to approximate the transient response from the open-loop transfer function were developed by Tustin, and earlier by Bedford and… CONTINUE READING
