Uncertain Models

Uncertain state-space and frequency response models

Uncertain state-space (uss) models are linear systems with uncertain state-space matrices, uncertain linear dynamics, or both. Most functions that work on numeric LTI models also work on uss models. These include model interconnection functions such as connect and feedback, and linear analysis functions such as bode and stepinfo. Some functions that generate plots, such as bode and step, plot random samples of the uncertain model to give you a sense of the distribution of uncertain dynamics.

In addition, you can use functions such as robstab and wcgain to perform robustness and worst-case analysis of uncertain systems represented by uss models. You can also use tuning functions such as systune for robust controller tuning.

Uncertain Models

Introduction to Uncertain Elements

Uncertain elements are the building blocks for representing systems with uncertainty.

Create Models of Uncertain Systems

Represent uncertain parameters and unmodeled dynamics in linear time-invariant models.

Uncertain Model Interconnections

Interconnect models that include systems with uncertain parameters or dynamics.

Simplifying Representation of Uncertain Objects

Simplify uncertain models built up from uncertain elements to ensure that the internal representation of the model is minimal.

Decomposing Uncertain Objects

Access the normalized LFT representation underlying uncertain models.

Model Object Basics

What Are Model Objects?

Model objects represent linear systems as specialized data containers that encapsulate model data and attributes in a structured way.

Types of Model Objects

Model object types include numeric models, for representing systems with fixed coefficients, and generalized models for systems with tunable or uncertain coefficients.

Control System Modeling with Model Objects

Model objects can represent components such as the plant, actuators, sensors, or controllers. You connect model objects to build aggregate models that represent the combined response of multiple elements.
