Prev: Transfer Functions | Chapter 9 | Lecture Index | Next: PID Control |

## Overview

This lecture describes how to analyze the stability and performance of a feedback system by looking at the open loop transfer function. We introduce the Nyquist criteria for stability and talk about the gain and phase margin as measures of robustness. The cruise control system is used as an example throughout the lecture.
