Find the new value of K, which gives the same damping ratio for the closed loop response. Compare the velocity error constant and settling time of the original and the compensated systems
15.b) A servomechanism has an open loop transfer function of
G(s) = 10 / s (1+0.5s) (1+0.1s)
Draw the Bode plot and determine the phase and gain margin. A networks having the transfer function (1+0.23s)/(1+0.023s) is now introduced in tandem. Determine the new gain and phase margins. Comment upon the improvement in system response caused by the network
