Compute the pole-zero map of an LTI model



pzmap(sys) plots the pole-zero map of the continuous- or discrete-time LTI model sys. For SISO systems, pzmap plots the transfer function poles and zeros. For MIMO systems, it plots the system poles and transmission zeros. The poles are plotted as x's and the zeros are plotted as o's.

When invoked without left-hand arguments,

returns the system poles and (transmission) zeros in the column vectors p and z. No plot is drawn on the screen.

You can use the functions sgrid or zgrid to plot lines of constant damping ratio and natural frequency in the - or -plane.


Plot the poles and zeros of the continuous-time system.


pzmap uses a combination of pole and zero.
