C(s)/R(s) = G(s)/(1 + G(s))

From the transfer function the Transient Response can be found by using Laplace Transforms see

For Large Systems the Transfer Function can be converted into a set of first order differential equations which can be integrated by Runge-Kutta methods.

Assuming a Transfer function of the form

The applets show how the transient response depends on the number of poles and zeros and their locations. The Following images show how some of the applets look when enabled.
