Owning Palette: Frequency Response VIs

Requires: Control Design and Simulation Module

Calculates all the gain and phase margins, which result from the frequency response crossing at 0 decibels (magnitude) and –180 degrees (phase). You can use the CD All Margins VI only with single-input single-output (SISO) systems. Wire data to the State-Space Model and Frequency Range inputs determine the polymorphic instance to use or manually select the instance.

This VI converts the state-space and zero-pole-gain models into transfer function models before calculating their margins.
