Can we reshape the root locus by adding a pole instead of a zero (as is done in PD controller) to get required Ts while O.S. being the same?

Yes, you can reshape a root-locus with a pole. Usually you don't get the result you want -- usually the increase in phase lag means that you end up with loop performance slower than you would without ...

Understanding Block Diagrams in Control Setups

Once again, agree with Tim! Here is some more detail. Solving dynamic systems control problems like this is most easily done by transforming the problem from the time domain (which is where newton's ...

Understanding Block Diagrams in Control Setups

The block on the left is a source of a measurement of the yaw rate, in degrees per second. The block on the right has the transfer function $$\frac{5}{0.4 s + 1} \tag 1$$ This is Laplace-domain ...

Understanding Block Diagrams in Control Setups

but what specifically does the second block in this diagram mean? A block diagram like the one in the question represents the relation between output of a system and its input. you can think of the ...

Multiplicative Vs Additive (PID) Feedback Loops

In the case of your example, you can take the log of both sides to get a homologue of your (1) that is linear: $$\log C_{t+1} = \log C_t + \log S - \log M_t \tag a$$ (a) is linear in $\log C_t$ and $\...

What is the relationship between classical control: transfer functions/frequency domain and the swing-up problem of an inverted pendulum

how to formulate this same problems as a transfer function or in the frequency domain? I mean I could compute the transfer function for the pendulum equation. The range of motion involved in bringing ...
