Numeric linear-time-invariant (LTI) models are the basic building
blocks that you use to represent linear systems. Numeric LTI model
objects let you store dynamic systems in commonly-used representations.
tf models represent transfer functions
in terms of the coefficients of their numerator and denominator polynomials,
ss models represent LTI systems in terms
of their state-space matrices. There are also LTI model types specialized
for representing PID controllers in terms of their proportional, integral,
and derivative coefficients.
Build up a more complex model of a control system by representing individual components as LTI models and connecting the components to model your control architecture. For an example, see Control System Modeling with Model Objects.
|Create PID controller in parallel form, convert to parallel-form PID controller|
|Create a PID controller in standard form, convert to standard-form PID controller|
|Create 2-DOF PID controller in parallel form, convert to parallel-form 2-DOF PID controller|
|Create 2-DOF PID controller in standard form, convert to standard-form 2-DOF PID controller|
Model objects can represent components such as the plant, actuators, sensors, or controllers. You connect model objects to build aggregate models that represent the combined response of multiple elements.
Model objects represent linear systems as specialized data containers that encapsulate model data and attributes in a structured way.
Ways to use model objects include linear analysis, compensator design, and control system tuning.

Represent transfer functions in terms of numerator and denominator coefficients or zeros, poles, and gain.
Represent state-space models in terms of the state-space matrices.
Represent dynamic systems in terms of the magnitude and phase of their responses at various frequencies.
Represent PID controllers in terms of controller gains or time constants.
2-DOF PID controllers can achieve faster disturbance rejection without significant increase of overshoot in setpoint tracking.
This example shows some best practices for working with LTI models.

Represent discrete-time numeric models by specifying a sample time when you create the model object.
The integrator and filter terms in discrete-time PID controllers can be represented by several different formulas.
Create MIMO transfer functions by concatenating SISO transfer functions or by specifying coefficient sets for each I/O channel.
These examples show how to represent MIMO systems as state-space models.
