Questions & Answers
Q: What is the purpose of drawing the Nyquist plot?
The Nyquist plot helps visualize the behavior of a control system. It provides insights into system stability and can be used to determine the number of encirclements around a point, which indicates system stability.
Q: How do you calculate the magnitude and phase angle of the transfer function?
The magnitude is calculated by taking the square root of the sum of the real part squared and the imaginary part squared. The phase angle is determined using the inverse tangent function, considering the imaginary and real parts of the transfer function.
Q: What does it mean if the magnitude of the transfer function is zero?
A magnitude of zero indicates that the transfer function output is zero for a specific frequency. This could imply that the system response at that frequency is completely canceled out or that there is a complete phase shift.
Q: How is the stability of the system determined from the Nyquist plot?
The stability is determined by counting the number of encirclements made by the Nyquist plot around the point 1+j0. If there are no encirclements, the system is stable. The number of encirclements can be calculated by subtracting the number of poles from the number of zeros.
Summary & Key Takeaways

The video discusses the process of drawing the Nyquist plot for a control system using the open loop transfer function.

The magnitude and phase angle of the transfer function are calculated for different values of frequency (omega).

A table of magnitude and phase angle values is created, which is then used to create the Nyquist plot by plotting the points on a polar graph.

The stability of the system is determined by counting the number of encirclements made by the plot around the point 1+j0. If there are no encirclements, the system is stable.
