When a system is stimulated by an input it will respond. Initially there is a substantial transient response, that is eventually replaced by a steady state response. Techniques for finding the combined steady state and transient responses were covered in earlier chapters. These include the integration of differential equations, and numerical solutions. Phasor analysis can be used to find the steady state response only. These techniques involve using the phasor transform on the system transfer function, input and output.
