Python Control System Library RMM, 23 May 09

This directory contains the source code for the Python Control Systems Library (python-control). This library is still under development, but is intended to serve as a wrapper for standard control system algorithms in the python programming environment.

Installation instructions

Standard python package installation:

python setup.py install

To see if things are working, you can run the script examples/secord-matlab.py (using ipython -pylab). It should generate a step response, Bode plot and Nyquist plot for a simple second order linear system.

You can also run a set of unit tests to make sure that everything is working correctly. After installation, run

python tests/test_all.py

from the source distribution directory.
