Improving plant performance


Suppose we have a second order plant: G(s) =
2 n 2 s2 + 21 n s + n

Overdamped: 1 > 1 Poles = 1 n n Sluggish response Can we improve the performance by a controller

Root locus, a denition


Root locus is the locus of roots of 1 + KG(s) = 0, as K goes from 0 to . 1 + KG(s) = 0 or KG(s) = 1 s is complex and hence, 1 + KG(s) also is complex. We get the following magnitude and phase relations: |KG(s)| = 1 KG(s) = (2l + 1)180 , l = 0, 1, 2, . . .
9/18 CL-417 Process Control Root locus guidelines

Root locus angle condition


KG(s) = (2l + 1)180 , l = 0, 1, 2, . . . If we assume the following form of G(s), G(s) = (s z1 )(s z2 ) (s zm )

(s p1 )(s p2 ) (s pn )

zi are known as the zeros pj are known as the poles KG(s) = (s z1 ) + + (s zm ) (s p1 ) (s p2 ) = (2l + 1)180 , l = 0, 1, 2, . . .
10/18 CL-417 Process Control Root locus guidelines

Angles made by poles and zeros


Angle made by a pole:
Im(s) (s p1 ) p1

Re(s)

Angle made by a pole and a zero:


Im(s) (s p1 ) (s z1 ) Re(s) p1

All points s that satisfy the following condition will be on root locus: (s z1 )+ +(s zm )(s p1 )(s p2 ) = (2l + 1)180 , l = 0, 1, 2, . . .

Singularity on right ,

Contr. to G = 180 or +180 , i.e. 180 The locus on the real axis is to the left of an odd no. of real poles plus real zeros
12/18 CL-417 Process Control Root locus guidelines

Left of odd number of real poles and zeros

Want to check whether a point s0 on real axis belongs to root locus Count the total number of poles and zeros to the right of s0 If this number is odd, s0 belongs to root locus If this number is even, s0 does not belong to root locus
