There is a certain equation relating both Mp (max. overshoot) and damping ration. Which is; Mp = e(-ζ*pi)/(1-ζ2)1/2 What I get from that equation is for every system a certain damping ratio will result the system in a certain amount of max. overshoot. That sounds ridiculous, because every system must have its own inner dynamics, right ? Can someone please explain me that phenomena ?
