4. Time-Domain Response
Control System Professional provides the means to analyze linear systems in both time and frequency domains. This chapter deals with the time dependencies of the state and output vectors. Refer to Chapter 5 for the description of frequency-domain analysis tools. Two approaches, symbolic and simulation-based, are implemented and will be introduced in the following sections. The functions StateResponse and OutputResponse, which compute the state and output responses, are capable of performing both operations and choose their mode depending on the supplied input. SimulationPlot, on the other hand, always uses the simulation approach.
