Owning Class: modeling and prediction

Requires: MathScript RT Module


dlsim(A, B, C, D, U)

dlsim(A, B, C, D, U, x0)

[Y, X] = dlsim(A, B, C, D, U)

[Y, X] = dlsim(A, B, C, D, U, x0)


Computes the linear simulation of a discrete system model. This function uses discrete simulation to calculate the output of the model when a set of inputs excite the model. If you do not request an output, this function plots the linear simulation in the current plot window.



Name Description
A Specifies an n-by-n state matrix, where n is the number of model states. A is a real matrix.
B Specifies an m-by-n input matrix, where m is the number of model inputs. B is a real matrix.
C Specifies an r-by-n output matrix, where r is the number of model outputs. C is a real matrix.
D Specifies an r-by-m direct transmission matrix. D is a real matrix.
U Specifies the inputs that excite the system. The time step of the model must match the time step of the U input. U is a real matrix.
x0 Specifies the initial states of the model. The i-th element of x0 corresponds to the i-th initial state. The default is all zeros. x0 is a real vector.


Name Description
Y Returns the time response of the outputs of the model due to the conditions you specify in x0. Y is a real matrix.
X Returns the time response of the states of the model due to the step input. X is a real matrix.
