    Final Value Theorem

    What is the steady-state output of a transfer function subjected to a step change? There is a simple rule - but does it work in all cases?

The Transfer Function Simulator above is a simplistic (yet quite powerful) imitation of commercial products such as Simulink(r) by MathWorks(c) or PLECS(r) by PLEXIM(c). The purpose behind providing the simulator is simple: not everyone has access to Simulink. Alternatively, there might not a free license at the time or simply one would like to explore the design of control systems online on a machine without installed MatLab.
