Classical Control Design
Using the Control System Designer app, you can interactively design and analyze single-input, single-output (SISO) controllers for feedback systems modeled in Simulink®. You can tune controllers using various graphical and automated tuning methods. To choose the best tuning method for your application, see Control System Designer Tuning Methods.

You can tune compensators using various graphical and automated tuning methods.
You can tune parameters in certain Simulink blocks using Simulink Control Design™ software.
Analysis points allow you to access to internal signals, perform open-loop analysis, or specify requirements for controller tuning in systems modeled in either MATLAB® or Simulink.
Tune the closed-loop performance of a single-loop system using a feedback compensator, and then tune the system response to changes in the reference signal using a prefilter.
To design compensators for cascaded multi-loop systems, first tune the compensator for the inner loop and then tune the outer-loop compensator.
Some Control System Designer design and analysis tools support exact time delays while others use approximations of time delays.
To tune a controller within a custom masked subsystem, you can configure the subsystem as a tunable block.
Automatically tune the parameters of a PID controller. You can then fine tune the controller performance using graphical design techniques.
Tune Simulink blocks using the Compensator Editor dialog box in Control System Designer.
Analysis and Validation
Analyze your control system designs using the plotting tools in Control System Designer.
Examine the effects of different tuning methods or compensator structures by comparing the performance of multiple compensator designs.
To tune a controller for a nonlinear system, Control System Designer linearizes the Simulink model. Therefore, it is good practice to validate your tuned controller performance using the nonlinear system.
