# Nyquist Diagram

**This model can be continuous or discrete and siso or mimo.**

**Nyquist diagram**.
That means nyquist plots are used to draw the complete frequency response of the open loop transfer function.
Well all we need to do is calculate or estimate the magnitude of the nyquist curve where it crosses the negative real axis.
Now lets draw a unit circle around the origin using matlab s ltiview command.

Consider the following two variations on the nyquist diagram shown above. Nyquist sys creates a nyquist plot of a dynamic system sys. A nyquist plot is a parametric plot of a frequency response used in automatic control and signal processing.

In cartesian coordinates the real part of the transfer function is plotted on the x axis. Systems with greater gain margin and phase margins can withstand greater changes in system parameters before becoming unsta ble. In the mimo case nyquist produces an array of nyquist plots each plot showing the response of one particular i o channel.

The most common use of nyquist plots is for assessing the stability of a system with feedback. However because there is a pole at the origin we can infer that the counterclockwise 180 detour around the origin in s yields a clockwise 180 detour in l s that is not shown in the matlab plot. Nyquist plots are commonly used to assess the stability of a system with feedback.

This nyquist diagram is a little hard to decipher because the branches go off towards infinity. The frequency points are chosen automatically based on the system poles and zeros. Assuming that a starts from origin a is a path traveling up the jω axis from j0 to j then a semicircular arc with radius followed by a path traveling up the jω axis from j to origin.

In fact the nyquist command is generally more useful for examining the details of a nyquist plot called here the nyquist diagram than the plots we have been using but the plots we have been using may be better for learning about the plots. Gain phase margin via the nyquist diagram we use the nyquist diagram to deﬁne two quantitative measures of how stable a system is. What is nyquist plot a nyquist plot or nyquist diagram is a frequency response plot used in control engineering and signal processing.
