Sensitivity analysis is applied to an investigation of the influences of design parameters on the dynamics of electrohydraulic position control servos. A sensitivity model suitable for certain nonlinear dynamic systems is introduced in general form. State equations may have nonlinearities that are continuously twice differentiable with respect to the state vector and parameter vector and nonlinearities such as deadband. As an example parameter influences on a servo system typical in the sawmill industry are considered.
