Enter the maximum value and the step value into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Percent Overshoot.

## Percent Overshoot Formula

PO = (MV - SV) / SV *100

Variables:

- PO is the Percent Overshoot (%)
- MV is the maximum value
- SV is the step value

To calculate Percent Overshoot, subtract the step value from the maximum value, then divide by the step value, and finally multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Percent Overshoot?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Percent Overshoot.

- First, determine the maximum value.
- Next, determine the step value.
- Next, gather the formula from above = PO = (MV – SV) / SV *100.
- Finally, calculate the Percent Overshoot.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

maximum value = 40

step value = 20
