ControllabilityGramian

ControllabilityGramian[ssm]

gives the controllability Gramian of the state-space model ssm.

Details and Options

  • The state-space model ssm can be given as StateSpaceModel[{a,b,}], where a and b represent the state and input matrices in either the continuous-time system or the discrete-time system:
  • continuous-time system
    discrete-time system
  • The controllability Gramian:
  • continuous-time system
    discrete-time system
  • For asymptotically stable systems, the Gramian can be computed as the solution of a Lyapunov equation:
  • continuous-time system
    discrete-time system
  • For a StateSpaceModel with a descriptor matrix, ControllabilityGramian returns a pair of matrices {wcs,wcf}, where wcs is associated with the slow subsystem, and wcf is associated with the fast subsystem.
  • The controllability Gramians only exist for descriptor systems in which Det[λ e-a]0 for some λ.

Properties & Relations  (7)

The controllability Gramian has the dimension of the state matrix:

If the controllability Gramian has full rank, the system is controllable:

The controllability Gramian of a controllable and asymptotically stable system is symmetric and positive definite:

The controllability Gramians of asymptotically stable systems satisfy the corresponding Lyapunov equations:

The controllability Gramian is the observability Gramian of the dual system:

A descriptor state-space model gives two Gramians:

The systems is completely controllable if and only if the sum is positive definite:

The fast and slow subsystem Gramians are computed from the Kronecker decomposition:

Split the decoupled states:

The slow subsystem yields a Gramian for the slow states and a zero matrix:

The fast subsystem yields a Gramian for the fast states and a zero matrix:

Inversing the Kronecker transformation gives the Gramians for the original system:

This gives the same result as using ControllabilityGramian directly:

Possible Issues  (1)

The controllability Gramian is not defined for a system that is not asymptotically stable:
