A correlation equation is established between open-loop test data and the desired closed-loop system characteristics permitting control system synthesis to be done on the basis of a numerical approach using experimental data. The method is applicable when the system is linear-time-invariant and open-loop stable. The major merits of the algorithm are two-fold: 1) Arbitrary placement of the closed-loop system equation is possible, and 2) explicit knowledge of an open-loop system model is not needed for the controller synthesis.
