The Digital Compensator Design Tool (DCDT) allows you to select between different types of compensators. You are encouraged to explore the different available options to determine the one that achieves the best overall system performance.

  • 3-Pole/ 3-Zero (3P3Z) Compensator
  • 2-Pole/ 2-Zero (2P2Z) Compensator
  • Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Compensator
  • Analog Op Amp Type III Compensator
  • Analog Op Amp Type II Compensator

The Compensator Select window, shown in Figure 1, allows you to make a selection by clicking on the compensator of interest.
