Lagged low order control systems with powered controlsWith powered controls, a high order control system can be changed to a lower order control system with a lag, which is better suited to our position control skills and strategies. Separate groups of untrained men were trained on an acceleration control system, or on a rate control system with an exponential lag of either .5, 2, or 4 sec. Acquisition time was reliably shorter with all the lagged rate control systems than with the unlagged acceleration control system.
