Phase-Lead and Phase-Lag Compensators. The phase-lead compensator improves the performance of the open-loop system by adding a phase boost to the phase curve to obtain the desired phase margin at the desired gain crossover frequency [29], whereas the phase-lag compensator improves the performance of the open-loop system by adding phase attenuation to the phase curve to obtain the desired phase margin at the desired gain crossover frequency [31].
Clearly, the compensator u = [y.sup.2] + v gives a solution, but this is not a feedforward solution as it depends on the output y of the system.
