PS Constant Offset Estimator

Measure constant offset value of periodic signal


Physical Signals/Periodic Operators


The PS Constant Offset Estimator block measures the constant offset value of a periodic signal.

A signal is periodic if it completes a pattern within a measurable time frame, called a period, and repeats that pattern over identical subsequent periods. The signal base frequency is the number of periods per second.

The constant offset is the amount by which the average value of the periodic signal is not centered around the t-axis.

To obtain meaningful results, run the simulation for at least one full time period of the signal.


Base frequency

Specify the periodic signal frequency. The default value is 60 Hz.


The block has one physical signal input port and one physical signal output port.

Introduced in R2015b
