Control System Stability
“How can we measure the stability of a control system?”
Control systems are necessary for the function of society. However, if our system proves to be unstable, then it can cause serious harm to its operation. So how can we measure the control system stability? Well if we take the Laplace transform of the transfer function and observe that there are poles in the right-hand plane, then the exponential part of the function will grow to infinity over time, thereby causing a system malfunction. Control system stability is used to analyze a diverse range of fields ranging from aerospace controls to robotics and even building energy management.
