Absolute stability of nonlinear systems is examined using the conventional techniques, and a representation of Popov line in the logarithmic gain and phase versus frequency plane. A grapho-analytical procedure is advanced for the Popov line transference to the Bode plane. The technique may be used either as an analytical tool for investigating absolute stability of systems with specified nonlinearity sector, or as a synthesis technique for compensator design. The application of the proposed method for substantiating compensator design results is illustrated by two examples.
