This study was concerned with the transient performance of servomechanims. Only those systems with a steady-state-displacement error of zero when subjected to an input-step function were considered. Specific linear and nonlinear systems were optimized by minimizing the cost functionals of the integral of time multiplied by the absolute value of the error and the integral of time multiplied by the absolute value of error plus a weighting factor times the control effort squared. Resultant pole locations were evaluated to determine the existance of progressive and useful patterns. Standard forms were derived for first- through seventh-order systems. Active networks were designed using these standard forms. Step responses were evaluated in terms of the components of the cost functionals. Nonlinear and linear optimizations were compared to determine if one was superior to the other. Performance indices were compared to determine if advantages existed for the inclusion of a control cost. Conclusions drawn by previously published material were investigated for validity.
