kblocks package, v.2.0.
A Macro Package to Easily typeset Control Block Diagrams and Signal Flow Graphs with TikZ/PGF
Statement of Need
Desiring to typeset control block diagrams in LaTeX and dissatisfied with the other LaTeX macro packages that can be found online, I thought: why not write my own macro package for this purpose.
Like all LaTeX packages, TikZ/PGF inherits the steep learning curve, that is, no what you see is what you get. Basically, kblocks defines a number of macro commands to make drawing control block diagrams using TikZ/ PGF more structured and easier. This macro reduces the length of this learning curve and serves as a frontend, by focusing the theme on control block diagrams only.
You will find a demo and an introduction in kblocks-doc.pdf file.
Fortunately this documentation in kblocks-doc.pdf as it grows and gets to be improved, will come with a number of slowly-paced tutorials, which will guide you on creating control block diagrams with the kblocks macro.
Licensing of this package is covered by the MIT Licence.
Issues and Feedback
My wish is that you find it helpful. Don’t forget to share and like. Please feel free to e-mail me for any improvement or suggestion with respect to using kblocks and making it useful for researchers, students and others involved in the applications and field of control theory.
