This thesis presents an analytical technique for the design of compensation for multi-loop servomechanisms. A completely general multi-loop system is represented in a standard block diagram. For this system a standard determinant is formed which uniquely represents each block, loop and path in the block diagram. Based on this determinant, the effect of all possible compensators on the coefficients of the system characteristic equation is found. This information is presented in a Location Matrix. A model characteristic equation is synthesized from the static and dynamic performance specifications. Comparison of the uncompensated characteristic equation to the proper model equation shows which coefficients must be altered. the Location Matrix will show all the compensator-path combinations which will affect the desired change. The method requires no intuition, and so can be applied by persons without extensive training in the servomechanism field. A step-by-step procedure for application of this technique is included as a summary.
