A unity-feedback control system has the forward path transfer function as

G(s) = K / s(s2+6s+25)

Construct the root locus diagram for K ≥ 0 . Find values of K for all the breakaway points.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The given transfer function is rewritten as follows:

K G(s)= s(52 +6s+25) К G(s)= s(s+3-4 s3+ j4) 1. Poles are s-0, -3+j4, -3-j4 2. Angle of asymptotes n- Number of poles is '3' and m-Number of zeros is '0 t180(2 1 0 = ,9%3 0,1, п-т п — т +180 (2(0)+1) = +600 3 0 Likewise e2 180°, 0±120°, 0, = T60°
