Abstract

This paper describes a program intended to be an aid for teaching and learning the process of creating Bode diagrams by hand Bode diagrams are a fundamental tool for understanding the frequency domain behavior of systems. The program, BodePlotGui, is a GUI (graphical user interface) tool written in the MATLAB (R) programming language. This program takes as input a transfer function, splits it into its constituent elements, then draws the piecewise linear asymptotic approximation for each element. This paper is available in interactive form on the IJEE website.
