## Root Locus Denition

Def. The Root Locus (RL) is the set of values of s for which the characteristic equation (s) = 0 is satised as a (real) parameter varies. Root Locus Transfer Function To analyze and plot the RL one must write (s) = 0 in root locus form

(s) =

## a(s) + Kb(s) = 0 1+K b(s) =0 a(s)

1 + KGrl (s) = 0
where K is the real parameter that generates the RL and Grl (s) the root locus transfer function.

## (s) = 0 Grl (s) =

1 K

Normalization Grl will always be normalized so that both b(s) and a(s) are monic. Magnitude & Angle Conditions

Conclusion The positive (or 180) RL is the set of points in the s-plane where the phase of Grl (s) is 180. The negative (or 0) RL is the set of points in the s-plane where the phase of Grl (s) is 0.

## General Properties of the RL

(Direction) The RL branches start at the poles of Grl (s) and end at the zeros of Grl (s) (including those at ) (Symmetry) The RL is symmetric with respect to the real axis. (Centroid) The RL centroid, is

## where r is the relative degree of Grl

(Singular points) Breakin/Break away points occur when multiple roots of (s) coincide. If sb is a break point of the RL then it dGrl (s) satises ds = 0 or equivelentely db(s) da(s) a(s) b(s) =0 ds ds

## Positive Root Locus Properties

1. (Real axis RL) A point on the real axis belongs to the RL if the total number of poles and zeros to its right is odd. 2. (Asymptotes) As |K| , r branches of the RL approach one asymptote each. Asymptotes originate on the real axis at the centroid and form angles w.r.t the real axis of

180 l = k, r

k = 1, 3, . . . , 2r 1

3. (Angles) The departure angle, dep,k of the RL from a pole pk (of multiplicity 1) of Grl (s) is given by

C(s)

P (s)

1. Translate Transient Response Specications into Acceptable Regions (AR) for the dominant poles of the closed loop. 2. Find lower and upper bounds got the compensator gain K from Steady-State Specications and Stability Requirements. 3. Use the zeros of the feedback compensator C(s) to attract the branches of the RL of the the dominant poles into the Acceptable Regions (AR). 4. Use the poles of C(s) to shape the root locus as required. If necessary add far-o poles for noise reduction and realizability. 5. Design the prelter F (s) to improve the overall transient response.
