Dynamical effects in polarization-mode dispersion compensators are investigated. A typical compensator can actually work in two different operating modes. Dynamic evolution of the input signal can require a continuous switch between these modes, producing significant performance degradation. We introduce a numerical procedure to simulate dynamical effects, which confirms the occurrence of critical configurations.
