Our aim is to transfer the known initial conditions on output y ( t ) to initial conditions on the state vector x ( t ) . For this, assume that the initial conditions on u ( t ) are all zero. [The argument for this is that u ( t ) is ours to control and we typically do things like step, impulse and sinewave test, which are preceded by zero input. If the initial conditions of u were important, then according to our definition of state we would have to incorporate them into the state and we could do this by redefining the initial conditions on y .] Using the state equations, show that Action!!Action!...
