If a nonlinear I/O system has no internal state, then evaluating the system at an input u gives the output y = F(u), determined by the output function.
- Parameters
params (dict, optional) – Parameter values for the system. Passed to the evaluation function for the system as default values, overriding internal defaults.
squeeze (bool, optional) – If True and if the system has a single output, return the system output as a 1D array rather than a 2D array. If False, return the system output as a 2D array even if the system is SISO. Default value set by config.defaults[‘control.squeeze_time_response’].

A copy of the system is made, with a new name. The name keyword can be used to specify a specific name for the system. If no name is given and use_prefix_suffix is True, the name is constructed by prepending config.defaults[‘namedio.duplicate_system_name_prefix’] and appending config.defaults[‘namedio.duplicate_system_name_suffix’].

- Returns
gain – Array or scalar value for SISO systems, depending on config.defaults[‘control.squeeze_frequency_response’]. The value of the array elements or the scalar is either the zero-frequency (or DC) gain, or inf, if the frequency response is singular.

- frequency_response(omega, squeeze=None)[source]¶
Evaluate the linear time-invariant system at an array of angular frequencies.
Reports the frequency response of the system,
G(j*omega) = mag * exp(j*phase)
for continuous time systems. For discrete time systems, the response is evaluated around the unit circle such that
G(exp(j*omega*dt)) = mag * exp(j*phase).
In general the system may be multiple input, multiple output (MIMO), where m = self.ninputs number of inputs and p = self.noutputs number of outputs.
- Parameters
omega (float or 1D array_like) – A list, tuple, array, or scalar value of frequencies in radians/sec at which the system will be evaluated.
squeeze (bool, optional) – If squeeze=True, remove single-dimensional entries from the shape of the output even if the system is not SISO. If squeeze=False, keep all indices (output, input and, if omega is array_like, frequency) even if the system is SISO. The default value can be set using config.defaults[‘control.squeeze_frequency_response’].
- Returns
response – Frequency response data object representing the frequency response. This object can be assigned to a tuple using
mag, phase, omega = response
where
mag
is the magnitude (absolute value, not dB or log10) of the system frequency response,phase
is the wrapped phase in radians of the system frequency response, andomega
is the (sorted) frequencies at which the response was evaluated. If the system is SISO and squeeze is not True,magnitude
andphase
are 1D, indexed by frequency. If the system is not SISO or squeeze is False, the array is 3D, indexed by the output, input, and frequency. Ifsqueeze
is True then single-dimensional axes are removed.- Return type
