A process of condensation is used to develop a geometric programming approach to the necessary conditions for a constrained optimum in an elementary way. Special features of geometric programming not found in other optimization procedures and which offer significant advantages in the design of optimum compensators are developed. Compensator design is formulated as an optimum pole placement problem subject to a time delay response constraint. The geometric programming approach results in simple explicit equations for the optimum compensator parameters.
