# black

Black-Nichols diagram of a linear dynamical system

### Calling Sequence

black( sl,[fmin,fmax] [,step] [,comments] ) black( sl,frq [,comments] ) black(frq,db,phi [,comments]) black(frq,repf [,comments])

### Arguments

- sl
a continuous or discrete time SIMO linear dynamical system ( see: syslin).

- fmin,fmax
real scalars (frequency bounds)

- frq
row vector or matrix (frequencies)

- db,phi
row vectors or matrices (modulus, phase)

- repf
row vectors or matrices (complex frequency response)

- step
real

- comments
string

### Description

Black's diagram (Nichols'chart) for a linear system ( see: syslin). `sl`

can be a continuous-time or
discrete-time SIMO system. In case of
multi-output the outputs are plotted with different colors.

The frequencies are given by the bounds
`fmin`

,`fmax`

(in Hz) or by a row-vector
(or a matrix for multi-output) `frq`

.

`step`

is the ( logarithmic ) discretization step.
(see calfrq for the choice of default value).

`comments`

is a vector of character strings
(captions).

`db,phi`

are the matrices of modulus (in Db) and
phases (in degrees). (One row for each response).

`repf`

matrix of complex numbers. One row for each
response.

To plot the grid of iso-gain and iso-phase of
`y/(1+y)`

use nicolschart().

Default values for `fmin`

and
`fmax`

are `1.d-3`

,
`1.d+3`

if `sl`

is continuous-time or
`1.d-3`

, `0.5`

/sl.dt (nyquist frequency)
if `sl`

is discrete-time.

### Examples

//Black diagram s=poly(0,'s'); sl=syslin('c',5*(1+s)/(.1*s^4+s^3+15*s^2+3*s+1)) clf();black(sl,0.01,10);

//Black diagram with Nichols chart as a grid s=poly(0,'s'); Plant=syslin('c',16000/((s+1)*(s+10)*(s+100))); //two degree of freedom PID tau=0.2;xsi=1.2; PID=syslin('c',(1/(2*xsi*tau*s))*(1+2*xsi*tau*s+tau^2*s^2)); clf(); black([Plant;Plant*PID ],0.01,100,["Plant";"Plant and PID corrector"]); //move the caption in the lower rigth corner ax=gca();Leg=ax.children(1); Leg.legend_location="in_lower_right"; nicholschart(colors=color('light gray')*[1 1])
