Abstract : Elementary fractional transfer functions are studied in this paper. Some basic properties of elementary transfer functions of the first kind are recalled. Then, two main results are presented regarding elementary fractional transfer functions of the second kind, written in a canonical form and characterized by a commensurate order, a pseudo-damping factor, and a natural frequency. First, stability conditions are established in terms of the pseudo-damping factor and the commensurate order, as a corollary to Matignon's stability theorem. They extend the previous result into conditions that are simpler to check. Then, resonance conditions are established numerically in terms of the commensurate order and the pseudo-damping factor and give interesting information on the frequency behavior of fractional systems. It is shown that elementary transfer functions of the second kind might have up to two resonant frequencies. Moreover, three abaci are given allowing to determine the pseudo-damping factor and the commensurate order for, respectively, a desired normalized gain at each resonance, a desired phase at each resonance, and a desired normalized first or second resonant frequency.
