The open loop transfer function of a unity feedback system is given by $$G\left( s \right) = {{2\left( {s + \alpha } \right)} \over {s\left( {s + 2} \right)\left( {s + 10} \right)}}.$$ Sketch the root locus as $$\alpha$$ varies from $$0$$ to $$\infty$$. Find the angle and real axis intercept of the asymptotes, breakaway points and the imaginary axis crossing points, if any

A unity feedback system has open loop transfer function $$G\left( s \right) = {{K\left( {s + 5} \right)} \over {s\left( {s + 2} \right)}};K \ge 0$$
(a) Draw a rough sketch of the root locus plot; given that the complex roots ofthe characteristic equation move along a circle.
(b) As K increases, does the system become less stable? Justify your answer.
(c) Find the value of $$K$$ (if it exists) so that the damping $$\xi$$ of the complex closed loop poles is $$0.3.$$

(a) Determine the range of $$K$$ for stable operation

(b) Determine the imaginary axis crossover points

(c) Without calculating the real axis break - away points, sketch the form of root loci for the system.
