### Connection between positive feedback at DC and real-axis right-half-plane pole(s)

(Context provided here, question summarized at the end.) Suppose I have an open-loop transfer function with two coincident left half plane poles like $$H(j\omega)=\frac{-H_0}{(1+j\omega RC)^2}$$ ...

### Zero crossing count vs zero crossing rate: does it make any difference?

I am trying to make a feedback howling detection program for an audio DSP chip I made a very crude one by counting zero crossings, doing something like this: ...

### How to accomodate feedback bits from Base Station to devices in LTE or 5g?

I am trying to think of a way in which the base station (BS) can send say 100 bits of feedback to devices in my cell. My confusion is what is a good way to send this feedback bits. This is during the ...

### How do I reduce a block diagram with just a line as a feedback loop, I dont get how it adds K to the denominator

How do I reduce a block diagram with just a line as a feedback loop, I dont get how it adds K to the denominator. The bottom equation is supposed to be the answer.

### What does the frequency of oscillating microphone feedback depend on?

Pointing a microphone to a connected loudspeaker creates a feedback path and usually results in acoustic resonance, which manifests in a sustained oscillation: https://youtu.be/_XTtjZ8aZbc. A similar ...

### Feedback stabilizes unstable systems?

Can feedback stabilize a unstable system?I guess so since we may get rid of any poles in the positive complex plane by feedback but I am not sure.

### To create feedback, does the peak to peak amplitude of a signal loop have to have an amplification factor (gain) that reaches zero?

In technical terms, feedback occurs when the gain in the signal loop reaches "unity" (0dB gain). How to Eliminate Feedback Peak-to-peak amplitude (abbreviated p–p) is the change between ...

### Introducing Feedback to Miller Puckette's Time-Domain Pitch Shifting Algorithm without Discontinuities

I've implemented Miller Puckette's time-domain pitch shifting algorithm (http://msp.ucsd.edu/techniques/v0.11/book-html/node125.html) in PureData's help files in C++ (my code here: https://github.com/...

### Did Dialup Modem use closed or open loop power/volume control? How did they determine Tx level?

I have been reading about dialup modems, but one thing I cannot seem to find out about is how implementers determined optimal transmit power/volume. Is this part of the echo cancelation framework? The ...

### Is there a strategy for discrete control of a system with dynamics near sample rate?

I'm trying to control a system where the controller sample rate is physically fixed and the plant has significant dynamics on the same order as the sample rate. I understand that one would prefer to ...

### Do we use closed loop or open loop information in Bode plot, Nyquist plot and Root Locus?

When analyzing a control system via Bode, Nyquist and Root-Locus, are we using open or closed loop information? I'm not able to understand when the poles of the open loop are used and when the one of ...

### What is the Reference in Control Theory?

I've started studying Control and I've come across some concepts that I'm finding a bit difficult to understand. For example, in the system showed here, there is a signal called "reference" as well ...

### Is there an existing feedback elimination algorithm that can be implemented in iOS?

The project I'm working on allows a user to speak through a PA system with their iphone as the microphone. Unfortunately, the existing audio units in iOS don't eliminate the feedback between the PA ...

### Frequency range of acoustic feedback

What is the frequency range in which acoustic feedback can be found? Most importantly, is there some lowest frequency below which one can expect not to find any feedback? My conclusion from the ...
