rise time

[′rīz ‚tīm]
(control systems)
The time it takes for the output of a system to change from a specified small percentage (usually 5 or 10) of its steady-state increment to a specified large percentage (usually 90 or 95).
(electricity)
The time for the pointer of an electrical instrument to make 90% of the change to its final value when electric power suddenly is applied from a source whose impedance is high enough that it does not affect damping.
