Abstract : This work involved the hybrid simulation of a relatively simple second order analog system using a short word length digital computer for the computation of the control law for the analog system. Particular attention was paid to the effects of the analog-digital interface on the analog system response. A method was developed to program the digital computer to minimize these interface effects. The simulation was carried out in the Digital Control Laboratory at the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School using the CDC 160 digital computer and the Pace TR-20 analog computer with associated equipment. Although the specific solution of the interface problem was directed towards the above equipment, the general method of attack on the interface problem is applicable to many similar type hybrid systems.
