"The compensation process in control system engineering is indispensable. The addition of a compensator to a fixed plant can often make the system meet certain specifications easily. In this study an attempt was made to use a general purpose digital computer to design a feedback compensator. The method developed is first to determine the minimum gain of the amplifier and the number of compensator poles and zeros based on the given specifications. then free hand root-loci are plotted, with several combinations of possible compensation variables. These data are used as the open-loop transfer function from which the poles and zeros of the closed loop system are obtained. If any set of data meets all the specifications then it is a solution. If not, then select the one which is closest to the performance as an initial value for subsequent iteration and solve the problem"--Abstract, page ii.
