This lecture provides an introduction to stability and performance of (nonlinear) control systems. Formal definitions of stability are given and phase portraits are introduced to help visualize the concepts. Local and global behavior of nonlinear systems is discussed, using a damped pendulum and the predator-prey problem as examples. Performance of control systems is presented for transient and steady state specifications. <font color=green>(note: this is not covered in AM05 until [[Chapter 4 - Linear Systems]]).</font>

Overview

This lecture provides an introduction to the behavior of (nonlinear) dynamical systems. Formal definitions of stability are given and phase portraits are introduced to help visualize the concepts. Local and global behavior of nonlinear systems is discussed, using a damped pendulum and the predator-prey problem as examples. Performance of control systems is presented for transient and steady state specifications. </font>
