Discrete control: Theoretical background


An overview of discrete linear control theory is given. Topics covered include: Dynamical systems and difference equations. The z-transform. The time and the frequency domain. Test responses - Impulse, step, ramp, parabolic. Initial value theorem and final value theorem. The poles and zeros of the transfer function. Stability. Aperiodicity. The Fourier transform and the frequency response. White noise variance ratio analysis.
