Abstract:

This report describes the design of a graphical input language and CAD system for specifying control system block diagrams. The goal to develop a graphical means of defining block diagrams that avoided the need to create the textual descriptions required by most existing traditional analysis packages was accomplished. Generalized requirements for a successful human interface were developed. A graphical input methodology was developed that meets these human constraints. The CAD system designed allows graphical definition of linear systems and translation of these systems into forms acceptable by traditional analysis programs. Author
