# getGainCrossover

Crossover frequencies for specified gain

## Syntax

``wc = getGainCrossover(sys,gain)``

## Description

example

````wc = getGainCrossover(sys,gain)` returns the vector `wc` of frequencies at which the frequency response of the dynamic system model, `sys`, has principal gain of `gain`. For SISO systems, the principal gain is the frequency response. For MIMO models, the principal gain is the largest singular value of `sys`.```

## Examples

collapse all

Find the 0dB crossover frequencies of a single-loop control system with plant given by:

`$G\left(s\right)=\frac{1}{{\left(s+1\right)}^{3}},$`

and PI controller given by:

`$C\left(s\right)=1.14+\frac{0.454}{s}.$`

```G = zpk([],[-1,-1,-1],1); C = pid(1.14,0.454); sys = G*C; wc = getGainCrossover(sys,1)```
```wc = 0.5214 ```

The 0 dB crossover frequencies are the frequencies at which the open-loop response `sys = G*C` has unity gain. Because this system only crosses unity gain once, `getGainCrossover` returns a single value.

Find the 20 dB stopband of

`$sys=\frac{{s}^{2}+0.05s+100}{{s}^{2}+5s+100}.$`

`sys` is a notch filter centered at 10 rad/s.

```sys = tf([1 0.05 100],[1 5 100]); gain = db2mag(-20); wc = getGainCrossover(sys,gain)```
```wc = 2×1 9.7531 10.2531 ```

The `db2mag` command converts the gain value of -20 dB to absolute units. The `getGainCrossover` command returns the two frequencies that define the stopband.

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Input dynamic system, specified as any SISO or MIMO dynamic system model.

Input gain in absolute units, specified as a positive real scalar.

• If `sys` is a SISO model, the gain is the frequency response magnitude of `sys`.

• If `sys` is a MIMO model, gain means the largest singular value of `sys`.

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Crossover frequencies, returned as a column vector. This vector lists the frequencies at which the gain or largest singular value of `sys` is `gain`.

## Algorithms

`getGainCrossover` computes gain crossover frequencies using structure-preserving eigensolvers from the SLICOT library. For more information about the SLICOT library, see http://slicot.org.
