You can use this method on any order of ODE,
limited only by factoring of denominator polynomial
(characteristic equation)

## Must use modified procedure for repeated roots,

imaginary roots
Laplace transforms can be used in process

## Can be generalized to steps of different magnitudes

(a1, a2).
One other useful feature of the Laplace transform
is that one can analyze the denominator of the transform
to determine its dynamic behavior. For example, if
1
Y(s)= 2
s 3s 2
the denominator can be factored into (s+2)(s+1).
Chapter 3

## Using the partial fraction technique

1 2
Y(s)=
s 2 s 1
The step response of the process will have exponential terms
e-2t and e-t, which indicates y(t) approaches zero. However, if
1 1
Y(s)=
s 2 s 2 (s 1 )(s 2 )
We know that the system is unstable and has a transient
response involving e2t and e-t. e2t is unbounded for
large time. We shall use this concept later in the analysis
of feedback system stability.
