6. State Space Analysis
State space analysis uses matrix algebra for systems analysis rather than just
differential equations. It is particularly useful for higher order systems and systems with
multiple inputs or multiple outputs.
Associated with any rectangular matrix A are eigenvalues i and eigenvectors u i
Au i = i u i .
It can be very desirable to have an A matrix that is diagonalized. For instance, if
sI A =
6.3 The State Transition Matrix
The discussion in this section is taken primarily from section 8.2.1 of Gajic.
Let us look at a 1st order DE:
dx ( t )
= ax ( t ) + bf ( t ) .
cfw_In the following discussion, a will be a negative number. The Lap
6.4 State Space and the Transfer Function
The basic state equations are
x = Ax + Bf (t ), x ( 0 ) = x 0 ,
y = Cx ( t ) + Df ( t ) .
We have since established the solution:
X ( s ) = ( sI A ) x ( 0 ) + ( sI A ) BF ( s ) .
6.5 Time-Domain Simulation of State Space
Start with our basic state space equations:
x = Ax + Bf (t ), x ( 0 ) = x 0 , y = Cx .
We are all familiar with the 1 order approximation of a time-domain derivative
dx ( t ) x ( t + t ) x ( t )
6.6 Discrete-Time Models
In discrete time the state equations become
x [ k + 1] = Ad x [ k ] + Bd f [ k ]
y [ k ] = C d x [ k ] + Dd f [ k ]
For instance, for a 2nd order difference equation
y [ k + 2] + a1 y [ k + 1] + a0 y [ k ] = b1 f [ k + 1] + b0 f [

7.1 Introduction to Feedback
The following system is referred to as open loop:
