Applet shows root locus of a system with 2 pairs of complex conjugate poles and 1 pair of complex conjugate zeros. There are 2 asymptotes at ±90°.

Parameters (0.0, 1.65, 1.05, 0.5, 0.5, 1.0, 3.0, 1.0) illustrate the locus of a system with cc poles at -1.65 ± j1.05, -0.5 ± j0.5 and 2 cc zeros at -1.0 ± j3.0. This system is stable for K < 1.0 and for K > 24.6.

Parameters (0.0, 1.3, 0.3, 0.7, 0.3, 1.0, 1.5, 1.0) illustrate the locus of a system where the real part of the zeros is equal to the asymptote. This system is always stable because the loci never cross the imaginary axis.
