## Example 1: Construction of Bode Diagram

Given the transfer function
G( s ) =

60( s + 5 )
s( s + 0.5 )( s 2 + 0.2s + 150 )

## Example 2: Computing A Transfer

Function
1. At low frequencies slope 40 db/dec
(double integrator)
2. Change in slope by +20db/dec at =0.1
3.

## Change in slope by +20db/dec at =1

double pole at s = 0
zero at s = 0.1
zero at s = 1

## 4. Change in slope by -40db/dec at =5

double pole at s = 5 or
complex pole with n = 5 and some 0 < < 1
5. Change in slope by -20db/dec at =30

zero at s = 30

Hence

Hence the transfer function is
