Python Control Systems LibraryΒΆ

The Python Control Systems Library (python-control) is a Python package that implements basic operations for analysis and design of feedback control systems.

Features

  • Linear input/output systems in state-space and frequency domain
  • Block diagram algebra: serial, parallel, and feedback interconnections
  • Time response: initial, step, impulse
  • Frequency response: Bode and Nyquist plots
  • Control analysis: stability, reachability, observability, stability margins
  • Control design: eigenvalue placement, LQR, H2, Hinf
  • Model reduction: balanced realizations, Hankel singular values
  • Estimator design: linear quadratic estimator (Kalman filter)

Documentation
