The purpose of this thesis is to find suitable ways to design feedback compensators for high order systems by using Root-Locus methods. As a starting point we will examine a motor amplidyne system and a position control system that were previously designed using Bode methods. Then we generalize the method and extend it to other systems. The final subject of this thesis is to design feedback compensators as filters by using state feedback coefficients to define zeros of the filter, then we extend this idea to build cascade filters.
