constructs the feedback regulator for the StateSpaceModel ssm with estimator and feedback gain matrices l and κ, respectively.


uses only sensors as the measured outputs of ssm.


specifies finputs as the feedback inputs of ssm.


specifies einputs as the exogenous deterministic inputs.

Details and Options

  • The standard state-space model ssm can be given as StateSpaceModel[{a,b,c,d}], where a, b, c, and d represent the state, input, output, and transmission matrices in either a continuous-time or a discrete-time system:
  • continuous-time system
    discrete-time system
  • The descriptor state-space model ssm can be given as StateSpaceModel[{a,b,c,d,e}] in either continuous time or discrete time:
  • continuous-time system
    discrete-time system
  • EstimatorRegulator also accepts nonlinear systems specified by AffineStateSpaceModel and NonlinearStateSpaceModel.
  • For nonlinear systems, the operating values of state and input variables are taken into consideration when constructing the EstimatorRegulator.
  • The input can include stochastic inputs , feedback inputs , and exogenous deterministic inputs .
  • The arguments finputs and einputs are lists of integers specifying the positions of and in .
  • The output consists of the noisy measurements as well as other outputs.
  • The argument sensors is a list of integers specifying the positions of in .
  • EstimatorRegulator[ssm,{}] is equivalent to EstimatorRegulator[{ssm,All,All,None},{}].
  • The estimator gains l can be computed using EstimatorGains, LQEstimatorGains, or DiscreteLQEstimatorGains.
  • The feedback gains κ can be computed using StateFeedbackGains, LQRegulatorGains, or DiscreteLQRegulatorGains.
