# Problem with performances of a control scheme

I am trying to prove with Matlab that if I have an improper system and I place poles at higher and higher frequencies the performances of the system improves. In particular I am considering the following two degree of freedom scheme: and my code is the following:

s = tf('s');
P = 1/[(1+s)*(1+0.05*s)^2];
C = (s+1)/s;

tau_1 = 0.1;
CF_1 = [(1+s)*(1+0.05*s)^2]/((1+tau_1*s)^3);

tau_2 = 0.01;
CF_2 = [(1+s)*(1+0.05*s)^2]/((1+tau_2*s)^3);

tau_3 = 0.001;
CF_3 = [(1+s)*(1+0.05*s)^2]/((1+tau_3*s)^3);

T1 = (C+CF_1)*P/(1+P*C);
T2 = (C+CF_2)*P/(1+P*C);
T3 = (C+CF_3)*P/(1+P*C);

figure;
bodemag(T1,'r',T2,'b',T3,'g'),grid
legend('tau = 0.1','tau = 0.01','tau = 0.001')


so what I expected is that the performances with respect to the reference tracking increse as tau gets smaller, but if I do the Bode plot, what I get is: from which I don't really see much of an improvement. Moreover if I change some values: which is somenthing that to me does not makes sense because I should have that with $\tau =1$ I should have better performances than with $\tau =10$, this because with $\tau =1$ the pole is at higher frequencies that with $\tau =10$. • What would you expect to see for various $\tau$ values, other than a range of bandwidths? – Chu Nov 19 '19 at 23:04
