A control systems design toolbox for Julia.

To install, in the Julia REPL:

```
Pkg.add("ControlSystems")
```

- 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)`

#### New examples - Delayed systems (frequency domain)
- Delayed systems (time domain)
- Systems with uncertainty
- Robust PID optimization
### 2019-05-22
New state-space type
`HeteroStateSpace`

that accepts matrices of heterogeneous types: example using`StaticArrays`

. ### 2019-01-31 System identification using ControlSystemIdentification.jl is now available. The readme together with a series of notebooks serve as documentation. - State-space identification
- ARX/PLR
- Transfer-function estimation using spectral methods
- Impulse-response estimation

Support for Julia 0.7/1.0 added.

- LTISystem types are now more generic and can hold matrices/vectors of arbitrary type. Examples (partly pseudo-code):
`ss(1) ss(1.) ss(1im) ss(ForwardDiff.Dual(1.)) ss(GPUArray([1])) ss(SparseMatrix([1]))`

Similar for`tf,zpk`

etc. - Continuous time systems are simulated with continuous time solvers from
`OrdinaryDiffEq.jl`

- Freqresp now returns frequencies in the first dimension.
- Breaking:
`lsim(sys, u::Function)`

syntax has changed from`u(t,x)`

to`u(x,t)`

to be consistent with`OrdinaryDiffEq`

- Breaking:
`feedback(P,C)`

no longer returns`feedback(P*C)`

. The behavior is changed to`feedback(P1, P2) = P1/(1+P1*P2)`

. - Type
`Simulator`

provides lower level interface to continuous time simulation. - Example autodiff.jl provides an illustration of how the new generic types can be used for automatic differentiation of a cost function through the continuous-time solver, which allows for optimization of the cost function w.r.t. PID parameters.

All functions have docstrings, which can be viewed from the REPL, using for example `?tf `

.

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"])
```
