DEFINITIONS Digital: Refers to those control systems where some signals are not CT but DT

In practical usage, ³discrete-time´ and ³digital´ are interchanged: ³Discrete-time´ is frequently used in theoretical study, ³Digital´ is used in connection with hardware or software realizations

then it is possible to obtain Z of x(t) directly from X(s) utilizing the convolution integral method (Ogata.z-TRANSFORM BY THE CONVOLUTION INTEGRAL If x(t) is expressed in its L as X(s)=L[x(t)]. p. 83-90). X ( s) z ® ¾ X ( z ) ! § ¯residue _ of _ _ at _ the _ poles _ of _ X (s )¿ Ts z e ° À 11 .

THE PULSE TRANSFER FUNCTION (PTF) The pulse TF relates the z-transform of the o/p at the sampling instants to that of the sampled i/p. Consider a CT system G(s) driven by an impulse-sampled signal. 15 . x(t) dT x*(t) y(t) G(s) y*(t) dT We also consider a fictitious (synchronized) sampler at the o/p and observe that the sequence of values taken by y(t) only at instants t=kT.

The convolution sum gives the o/p as y ( k ) ! x( k ) * g ( k ) ! § g ( k  h ) x( h) h!0 k For a causal system. Thus. 1.. the sum can be taken from 0 to 8 as y ( k ) ! § g ( k  h) x ( h) h !0 g k=0. the z-transform of y(k) becomes 16 . where g(k-h)=0 for h>k. 2.

G(z)X(z) Note that the presence or absence of a sampler at the o/p does not affect the PTF. Consider a CT system without an i/p sampler. Y(s)=G(s)X(s) x(t) X(s) In terms of the z-transform.
