My system: IC6.1.5
In stb analysis, based on the bode plots I am able to approximately see where the poles and zeros are. But sometimes I would like to know the exact locations of poles and zeros. Is there a way to print out all the poles and zeros?
I know pz analysis can show poles and zeros, but in a feedback system I need to break the loop so that what pz analysis shows are the real open loop gain poles and zeros. So how to break the loop in pz analysis? I know stb has this built in...
thanks for helping.
They're not really the same thing. The pz analysis is computing the poles and zeros of the entire circuit, not just a specific loop gain. The stb analysis computes the loop gain (it does not "break" the loop) - they are different algorithms that work in different ways - so there's not really a way to do this (right now).
There have been some requests to implement this, but no plans to do so right now (not sure about the feasibility).
You probably want to fit poles and zeros to the loop gain computed by the stb analysis. One way of doing this (I have not tried it) might be to export the complex loop gain data and use something like zpkfit (see http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/27821-zpkfit).
In reply to Frank Wiedmann:
Thanks Andrew, thanks Frank,
Yes stb analysis calculates the open loop response without really "breaking" the loop. pz analysis just calculates poles and zeros from A to B based on your input. So in my understanding pz analysis is not really useful for stability analysis, because for stability we mostly care open loop response...
I will try zpkfit in matlab.
In reply to apple419:
Your circuit is unstable if the pz analysis gives you any poles in the right half plane (with a positive real part).
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
does cadence calculator now has a pole/zero fitting function?
so that it can form function like zpkfit? thanks.
