Input-state model matching and ripple-free response for dual-rate systems Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, we address the model matching problem for dual-rate systems where the controller output is generated at a faster rate than the measurement update rate. The model matching problem that has been studied in the literature requires the inputoutput properties of the closed-loop multirate system to match those of a desired single-rate linear time-invariant (LTI) system. In this paper, we consider the model matching problem from the input-state viewpoint: given a desired LTI system, find conditions and provide a controller design procedure to achieve matching between the closed-loop system and the desired system state variables at the measurement update rate. We provide a solution to this problem using a particular time-varying controller structure. In addition, we give conditions to avoid ripples in the steady-state output of the continuous-time plant; in particular, we show that some constraints on the input matrix of the desired system have to be posed. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the proposed method. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
