Homework Help: Obtaining state space from transfer functions

  1. Nov 15, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement
    I have a MIMO system with two inputs and two outputs. I have all transfer functions between inputs and outputs. I want to obtain a state space model that describes this system. All transfer functions are of 3rd degree.

    2. Relevant equations
    "Transfer matrix":
    HP(s)=[H11, H12; H21, H22]



    H21=[itex]\frac{4.8}{5s^3+13.5s^2+7.5s+1 }[/itex]

    H22=[itex]\frac{16}{5s^3+13.5s^2+7.5s+1 }[/itex]

    Solved it :-D

    I created two equations for the outputs which resulted in two 3rd degree ODE's. From these two equations I created 6 states, where only two of them was of any interest to me, so I put those two states in the measurment equation of the state space model.
