Linear System Representation

Models of linear time-invariant systems

Model objects can represent single-input, single-output (SISO) systems or multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) systems. You can represent both continuous-time and discrete-time linear systems, and systems with time delays. Basic model objects such as transfer functions and state-space models represent systems with fixed numeric coefficients. Build up more complex models of control systems by representing individual components as LTI models and connecting the components to model your control architecture. For an example, see Control System Modeling with Model Objects.

  • Basic Models
    Common models of linear systems, such as transfer functions and state-space models
  • Tunable Models
    Models with tunable or parametric coefficients
  • Models with Time Delays
    Systems with input, output, transport, and internal delays
  • Model Attributes
    Specify and query model characteristics such as coefficients, labels, and units
  • Model Arrays
    Generation of collections of models, such as for parameter studies
