In this paper, the controllability of a class of fractional differential evolution equations with nonlocal conditions is investigated. Sufficient conditions which guarantee the controllability of fractional differential evolution equations are obtained. The method used is the contraction mapping principle and Krasnoselskii theorem. A fractional distributed parameter control system is provided to illustrate the applications of our results.
