This paper refers to the problem of designing a linear state feedback dynamic controller for single-input, single-output decoupling of linear, time-invariant, singular systems. Sufficient conditions are established for the state-feedback decoupling problem to have a solution. In the case where the system satisfies these conditions, the class of controller matrices which decouple the system is given. Finally a method is presented for pole-zero placement in the decoupled singular system and a structure is described for the realization of the generalized transfer function matrices.
