Q.1 Determine the relative stability of the systems with the following characteristic equations
(1) by shifting the axis in the s-plane and using the Routh-Hurwitz criterion, and (2) by
determining the location of the complex roots in the s-plane.
a.) 3 + 3 2 + 4 + 2 = 0
b.) 4 + 9 3 + 30 2 + 42 + 20 = 0
c.) 3 + 19 2 + 110 + 200 = 0
Q.2 Determine the value of gain K when the system with the following open-loop transfer
function oscillates and calculate the roots of the closed-loop system for the K you found.

Q.3 For the control system shown below, (1) determine the range of such that the steady-state
error to a unit step reference input is less than 5% (2) determine the range of such that the
system is stable (3) select an that meets both requirements.

Q.4 For the following system compute the closed loop system poles using a Matlab script for
the following cases = 0.1 and = 0.6. What is the maximum for stability?
