This paper proposes a new method to the design of a controller to be embedded at a prescribed location in an otherwise unknown complex and multiple-loop Linear Time-Invariant (LTI) control system. The questions that arise naturally are: Will a controller proposed for this location stabilizes the overall system and, if so, what stability margins and response can be obtained? We address these questions by constructing an equivalent single-loop frequency domain representation of the original unknown complex system. This equivalent plant construction can be accomplished by a small set of frequency response measurements.
