Hi! I want to low-pass filter some simulations that I made. The indata to the simulation is built up by several modules and hence at the edges transients will occur. I want to filter these out. The indata in sampled at 20 Hz. How should I set the time constant for the filter? I mean I know that I should relate that to the time constant of the system in order to not filter away important data. But what is the time constant of a system really? Consider a car steering system. Is the time constant the time it takes for the system to manouver from max left to max right? Or is it the time it takes to manouver from +10% to -10%? Some guideluines would be appreciated.
