# State Vector 3 Real Poles Product, Step response and Bode Plot

Cuthbert Nyack

This applet shows the transient behaviour of the state vector components
x_{1}, x_{2} and x_{3} for a third order system when **A** is derived from a product of lag factors. The Bode plot for the output x_{1} is also shown.

In this case, the x_{1} response is the standard response for a third order system.
The x_{2} response is delayed relative to the x_{1} response and the x_{3} response is delayed relative to the x_{2}.

The eg parameters (8.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0.4) show that the system is oscillatory with x_{2} leading x_{1} and x_{3} leading x_{2}.

Gif image below shows how applet should appear.
