Homework Help: Designing a controller whice goal is stabilizing

  1. Oct 5, 2009 #1
    I am currently designing a controller whice goal is stabilizing (by means of feedback)
    a known plant.

    The design is carried out with matlab. Now, there is an option of using the gui "sisotool"
    for the controller design.
    The problem is that i want the closed loop system to meet certain
    demands that are defined in *advance*, and I don't want to "manully" create the contoller with the gui, after examining the plant.

    My goal is to the close the loop, so that the controller will be implemnted without the use of a gui, as a continous part of the program with no intervetion (as with the gui).

    Re: Matlab???

    Do you have a specific question that you would like to ask?

    EDIT -- and are you planning on actually closing the loop with some plant equipment? What are your output and input devices going to be?

    the question is: how do i design the controller automatically?
