The classical loop shaping is a design procedure that explicitly involves the shaping of the open loop transfer function L(s), within a desired frequency spectrum by manipulating the poles, zeros, and gain of the controller C(s). Interactive software tools have proven as, particularly, useful techniques with high impact on control education. This kind of interactive tools has demonstrated in the past that students learn in a much more active way. This paper presents the basic functionality of the linear control system design (LCSD), an interactive tool for analysis and design of linear control systems with special emphasis on the classical loop shaping design. The software tool is implemented in Sysquake, a MATLAB-like language with fast execution and excellent facilities for interactive graphics, and is delivered as a stand-alone executable that is readily accessible to students and instructors. Several design problems are used to illustrate the main features of the LCSD tool to perform classical loop shaping.
