Classical Control Design

Design, tuning, and analysis of single-input, single-output (SISO) feedback systems

Using the Control System Designer app, you can interactively design and analyze single-input, single-output (SISO) controllers for feedback systems. You can design controllers using various graphical and automated tuning methods. To choose the best tuning method for your application, see Control System Designer Tuning Methods.

For information about tuning SISO controllers in Simulink® models, see Classical Control Design in the Simulink Control Design™ documentation.

Getting Started

Control System Designer Tuning Methods

You can tune compensators using various graphical and automated tuning methods.

Feedback Control Architectures

When you open Control System Designer from MATLAB®, you can select one of six possible control architecture configurations.

Design Requirements

Using Control System Designer, you can tune your compensator to satisfy various time-domain and frequency-domain design requirements

Design Workflow

Multimodel Control Design

Design a compensator for a set of plant models using Control System Designer.

Design Compensator for Plant Model with Time Delays

Some Control System Designer design and analysis tools support exact time delays while others use approximations of time delays.

Design Compensator for Systems Represented by Frequency Response Data

Design compensators for plant models defined by frequency response data using Control System Designer.

Design Multiloop Control System

Design compensators for a control system with an inner and outer loop using Control System Designer.

Compensator Tuning

Bode Diagram Design

Bode diagram design is an interactive graphical method of modifying a compensator to achieve a specific open-loop response.

Root Locus Design

Root locus design is a common control system design technique in which you edit the compensator gain, poles, and zeros in the root locus diagram.

Nichols Plot Design

Nichols plot design is an interactive graphical method of modifying a compensator to achieve a specific open-loop response.

Edit Compensator Dynamics

Achieve your design goals by manually editing compensator poles, zeros, and gains.

Design Compensator Using Automated Tuning Methods

Tune a compensator using automated tuning methods in Control System Designer.

Analysis and Validation

Analyze Designs Using Response Plots

Analyze your control system designs using the plotting tools in Control System Designer.

Compare Performance of Multiple Designs

Examine the effects of different tuning methods or compensator structures by comparing the performance of multiple compensator designs.

Case Studies
