RAMOS-PAJA, Carlos Andrés; GONZALEZ, Daniel  and  SAAVEDRA- MONTES, Andrés Julián. Accurate calculation of settling time in second order systems: a photovoltaic application. Antioquia [online]. 2013, n.66, pp.104-117. ISSN 0120-6230.

A procedure to accurately calculate the settling time of second-order systems for any damping ratio and natural frequency is proposed in this paper. In addition, settling time calculation for second-order systems is reviewed in this paper, illustrating the errors generated by classical approximations reported in textbooks and research papers. Finally, such a procedure is used to precisely design a perturb and observe algorithm in a photovoltaic application.

Keywords : Settling time; accurate calculation; second order systems.
