Abstract

A computer simulation for control systems design A.M. Eydgahi Telecommunication Company of Iran, and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran ABSTRACT A menu-driven graphics-based simulation package called DESIGN has been developed. It enables the users to add/delete poles or zeros and vary design requirements such as the value of the gain, damping factor, overshoot, delay time, rise time, bandwidth, resonance frequency, etc., to see the effects on system response. The package is designed around the root locus plot of a unity feedback control system in a window environment. It is a useful tool for both the teachers and the students in a basic control system theory course with a special emphasis on design. INTRODUCTION In recent years, the use of various software for analysis and design of control systems has been a routine practice both in
