A method for the analysis of nonlinear and sampled control systems using spreadsheets is presented. Elements constituting control systems are first simulated, and then a network methodology is used to connect these elements together. As a result, it is then possible to evaluate the response of the control system and any of its components in reaction to any input. This method is characterised by its low cost, flexibility and primitivity.
