A control systems design toolbox for Julia.
To install, in the Julia REPL:
using Pkg; Pkg.add("ControlSystems")
- Breaking: Support for julia versions older than 1.3 is dropped
c2d(::StateSpace)now returns only the system, not the
c2d_x0mapfor the old functionality.
- System order can be specified in
- New discretization methods in
c2d. We now support
- Symbolic computation utilities in SymbolicControlSystems.jl
More details under releases.
lsimplot, stepplot, impulseplotnow have the same signatures as the corresponding non-plotting function.
- New function
d2cfor conversion from discrete to continuous.
Release v0.7 introduces a new
TimeEvolution type to handle
Discrete/Continuous systems. See the release notes.
- Poles and zeros are "not sorted" as in Julia versions < 1.2, even on newer versions of Julia. This should imply that complex conjugates are kept together.
- We now support systems with time delays. Example:
sys = tf(1, [1,1])*delay(1) stepplot(sys, 5) # Compilation time might be long for first simulation nyquistplot(sys)
- Delayed systems (frequency domain)
- Delayed systems (time domain)
- Systems with uncertainty
- Robust PID optimization
New state-space type
HeteroStateSpace that accepts matrices of heterogeneous types: example using
All functions have docstrings, which can be viewed from the REPL, using for example
A documentation website is available at http://juliacontrol.github.io/ControlSystems.jl/latest/.

ss, tf, zpk

minreal, sminreal, c2d
This toolbox works similar to that of other major computer-aided control systems design (CACSD) toolboxes. Systems can be created in either a transfer function or a state space representation. These systems can then be combined into larger architectures, simulated in both time and frequency domain, and analyzed for stability/performance properties.
Here we create a simple position controller for an electric motor with an inertial load.
using ControlSystems # Motor parameters J = 2.0 b = 0.04 K = 1.0 R = 0.08 L = 1e-4 # Create the model transfer function s = tf("s") P = K/(s*((J*s + b)*(L*s + R) + K^2)) # This generates the system # TransferFunction: # 1.0 # --------------------------------- # 0.0002s^3 + 0.160004s^2 + 1.0032s # #Continuous-time transfer function model # Create an array of closed loop systems for different values of Kp CLs = TransferFunction[kp*P/(1 + kp*P) for kp = [1, 5, 15]]; # Plot the step response of the controllers # Any keyword arguments supported in Plots.jl can be supplied stepplot(CLs, label=["Kp = 1" "Kp = 5" "Kp = 15"])
