    • 5.1: OBJECTIVES
    • 5.2: Series Compensation
      One way to change the performance of a feedback system is to alter the transfer function of either its forward-gain path or its feedback path. This technique of modifying a series element in a single-loop system is called series compensation. The changes may involve the d-c gain of an element or its dynamics or both.
    • 5.3: Feedback Compensation
      Series compensation is accomplished by adding a cascaded element to a single-loop feedback system. Feedback compensation is implemented by adding a feedback element which creates a two-loop system.
