This paper presents the results of efforts to implement a hybrid control system at the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School, The salient features of this effort are use of real time digital computer programming, digital determination of instantaneous state variables, and, using the foregoing features to demonstrate optimum control of a second order system. It was found that the technique employed would control the second order system, and that the derivative of a variable could be determined with the digital equipment. The computer programs for accomplishing this effort are included in Chapter IV and the appendicies.
