syslin

linear system definition

Calling Sequence

[sl]=syslin(dom,A,B,C [,D [,x0] ])
[sl]=syslin(dom,N,D)
[sl]=syslin(dom,H)

Arguments

dom

character string ('c', 'd'), or [] or a scalar.

A,B,C,D

matrices of the state-space representation (D optional with default value zero matrix). For improper systems D is a polynomial matrix.

x0

vector (initial state; default value is 0)

N, D

polynomial matrices

H

rational matrix or linear state space representation

sl

tlist ("syslin" list) representing the linear system

Description

syslin defines a linear system as a list and checks consistency of data.

dom specifies the time domain of the system and can have the following values:

dom='c' for a continuous time system, dom='d' for a discrete time system, n for a sampled system with sampling period n (in seconds).

dom=[] if the time domain is undefined

State-space representation:

sl=syslin(dom,A,B,C [,D [,x0] ])

represents the system :

The output of syslin is a list of the following form: sl=tlist(['lss','A','B','C','D','X0','dt'],A,B,C,D,x0,dom) Note that D is allowed to be a polynomial matrix (improper systems).

Transfer matrix representation:

sl=syslin(dom,N,D) 
sl=syslin(dom,H)

The output of syslin is a list of the following form : sl = rlist(N,D,dom) or sl=rlist(H(2),H(3),dom).

Linear systems defined as syslin can be manipulated as usual matrices (concatenation, extraction, transpose, multiplication, etc) both in state-space or transfer representation.

Most of state-space control functions receive a syslin list as input instead of the four matrices defining the system.

Examples

A=[0,1;0,0];B=[1;1];C=[1,1];
S1=syslin('c',A,B,C)   //Linear system definition
S1("A")    //Display of A-matrix
S1("X0"), S1("dt") // Display of X0 and time domain
s=poly(0,'s');
D=s;
S2=syslin('c',A,B,C,D)
H1=(1+2*s)/s^2, S1bis=syslin('c',H1)
H2=(1+2*s+s^3)/s^2, S2bis=syslin('c',H2)
S1+S2
[S1,S2]
ss2tf(S1)-S1bis
S1bis+S2bis
S1*S2bis
size(S1)
