9. Feedback Control Systems Design
Feeding a weighted part of the state or output variables back to the input is a method often used to correct the behavior of control systems. This chapter describes the tools provided in Control System Professional to design such feedback schemes by enforcing the desired pole location on the complex plane. Another approach, using the optimal control technique, is discussed in Chapter 10. The methods described here are applicable to continuous- or discrete-time systems as long as the proper values of the poles—on the - or -plane—are supplied.
