This paper presents a controller design method using lead and lag controllers for fractional-order control systems. In the presented method, it is aimed to minimize the error in the control system and to obtain controller parameters parametrically. The error occurring in the system can be minimized by integral performance criteria. The lead and lag controllers have three parameters that need to be calculated. These parameters can be determined by the simulation model created in the Matlab environment. In this study, the fractional-order system in the model was performed using Matsuda's fourth-order integer approximation. In the optimization model, the error is minimized by using the integral performance criteria, and the controller parameters are obtained for the minimum error values. The results show that the presented method gives good step responses for lead and lag controllers.
