The MapleSim™ Control Design Toolbox provides the necessary control design tools to extend the plant modeling capabilities of MapleSim. Using a symbolic approach, you can design, analyze, and test control systems.

You can also use the technical documentation tools available with MapleSim to document your design decisions.

Features of this toolbox include:


Model linearization


Standard PID tuning techniques: Ziegler-Nichols time response, Ziegler-Nichols frequency response and Cohen-Coon


Advanced PID tuning techniques: Dominant pole placement, pole placement in a specified region, and gain and phase margin


State Feedback Control: Single input pole placement (Ackermann), multiple input pole placement, and LQR


State Estimation: Single output pole placement (Ackermann), multiple output pole placement, and Kalman filter


Access to commands in the ControlDesign and DynamicSystems packages in Maple

Scope of Model Support

MapleSim Control Design Toolbox is a very comprehensive modeling tool where it is possible to design linear controllers for models created in MapleSim. The Control Design Toolbox linearizes systems of any complexity, including systems of DAEs of any index.


Systems that contain any type of discontinuity, including discrete transforms, switches, logic gates, relational and Boolean operations are not supported by the current release of this product.
