The ZIP package APLL Modeling and Simulation.zip has been updated to include a working simulation model along with examples for phase step, frequency step, and frequency ramp. Stability using root locus is stduied for the example from class that had questions. A PDF of the notebook is also in the ZIP package. More coming by Monday to make modeling other configurations easier.
