This paper presents an efficient algorithm to detect control-loops in large finite-state systems. The proposed algorithm exploits the modular structure present in many models of practical relevance, and often successfully avoids the explicit synchronous composition of subsystems and thereby the state explosion problem. Experimental results show that the method can be used to verify industrial applications of considerable complexity.
