1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Okay, this is probably a really simple thing but I'm just not able to wrap my head around it for whatever reason. I've got a second order system with feedback, where I've found the transfer function (and the real and imaginary parts of the transfer function), given by -AB = K/((1+jwt)^2). So I work through it, get to tan(theta) = Im/Re. To draw the Nyquist plot, I know I need to analyse what happens to theta as frequency (w) approaches zero and infinity. 2. Relevant equations I end up with tan(theta) = [2wtK] / [(-K)(1-(wt)^2)] where w = omega = angular frequency K = gain factor, a constant t = tau = time constant = RC (R = resistance, C = capacitance) 3. The attempt at a solution I can manage finding what theta approaches as w tends to zero. In this case it also goes to zero. But I just can't wrap my head around why, when w tends to infinity, theta tends to -180 degrees. Could someone please explain this? I know it's simple, but it's just not clicking for me. Thanks!
