Definition of step response in English:

step response


  • The output of a device in response to an abrupt change in voltage.

    • ‘The step response of multi-input systems is the collection of step responses for each input channel.’
    • ‘The significance of these differences is indicated by the plot showing both step responses overlaid.’
    • ‘A time vector can be created to compute the step response only over this range.’
    • ‘The step response depends on the relative locations of the complex poles relative to the imaginary axis.’
    • ‘In the case of the step response we need the response to a unit voltage step at the input.’
