**MECH 343: MODELING OF DYNAMIC SYSTEMS**

**Monash University**

**MEC3457: Systems and Control**

In classical control theory, we use variety of techniques for analyzing transfer function models. In this computer lab, we introduce root locus in the MATLAB environment. While root locus plots can be manually drawn by hand, MATLAB has the ability to generate it in a single function. The major advantage, aside from time savings, is that we can interact with the generated plots to obtain the information we need for system tuning. Plotting root locus plot in the MATLAB environment is a very simple process, it is important to understand how these plots are generated. The purpose of this computer laboratory is to not only introduce the root locus plot functions, but also to help you understand the process of generating these plots and read the plots so that you can properly utilize them in system tuning and gauging system response performance.
