In control engineering, a state-space representation is a mathematical model of a physical system as a set of input, output and state variables related by first-order differential equations or difference equations. State variables are variables whose values evolve over time in a way that depends on the values they have at any given time and on the externally imposed values of input variables. Output variables’ values depend on the values of the state variables.

Let’s introduce the state-space equations, the model representation of choice for modern control. This video is the first in a series on MIMO control and will provide some intuition around...See More
In this video we show how to represent differential equations (either linear or non-linear) in state space form. This is useful as it allows us to combine an...See More
