Two main approaches on sampled control are compared, the descrete equivalent design and the direct discrete design. Both design methods are used to implement a control system for a real plant, DC-motor. It is shown that discrete equivalent design works well with su cient high sampling rates and that direct discrete design works nearly independent of sampling time.
