Control System Representations

A: Differential Equation to Simulation Diagram

  1. Cascade integrators
  2. Add input
  3. Use summing junction
  4. Use summing junction

B: Transfer Function to State Space and Simulation Diagram

See Control and Observer Canonial Forms.

C: Simulation Diagram to State Space

  1. Set state variable to output of each integrator
  2. Create equations for input of each integrator and system output
  3. Rearrange in matrix format
