Study Notes

Controllability and Observability

  • Controllability and observability are two major concepts of modern control system theory
  • Controllability: the system must be controllable to do whatever we want with the given dynamic system under control input
  • Observability: the system must be observable to see what is going on inside the system under observation

Controllability

  • Definition: the process G is said to be controllable if every state variable x of G can be affected or controlled in finite time by some unconstrained control signal u(t)

Observability

  • Definition: the process G is said to be observable if every state variable x of G eventually affects some of the outputs y of the process

State Transition Matrix

  • The state transition matrix is denoted by Φ(t) = e^(At)
  • It satisfies the following properties:
    • Φ(0) = I
    • Φ(t1 + t2) = Φ(t1) Φ(t2)
    • Φ(t) = Φ^(-1)(-t)
    • Φ(t) is non-singular for all t
    • Φ(t) is continuous for all t

Test your understanding of state transition matrix and the behavior of x(t) and y(t) in power systems. Explore concepts such as homogeneous and non-homogeneous solutions as well as the principle of homogeneity.
