Abstract : For the past five years, the authors have been engaged in various aspects of the design of control systems. Virtually all of the studies required, in one way or another, the solution to the differential equations describing the controller and the system being controlled. This aspect of the problem falls into the general area of simulation. This paper describes the experiences of the authors in their use of various simulation techniques, including digital simulation languages, Fortran, and the analog computer. (Author)
