File Information

% Impulse response invariant discretization of fractional order
% low-pass filters
% irid_folpf function is prepared to compute a discrete-time finite
% dimensional (z) transfer function to approximate a continuous-time
% fractional order low-pass filter (LPF) [1/(\tau s +1)]^r, where "s" is
% the Laplace transform variable, and "r" is a real number in the range of
% (0,1), \tau is the time constant of LPF [1/(\tau s +1)].
% The proposed approximation keeps the impulse response "invariant"
% IN:
% tau: the time constant of (the first order) LPF
% r: the fractional order \in (0,1)
% Ts: the sampling period
% norder: the finite order of the approximate z-transfer function
% (the orders of denominator and numerator z-polynomial are the same)
% OUT:
% sr: returns the LTI object that approximates the [1/(\tau s +1)]^r
% in the sense of invariant impulse response.

% Only supports when r in (0,1). That is fractional order low pass filter.
% HOWEVER, if r is in (-1,0), we call this is a "fractional order
% (proportional and derivative controller)" - we call it FO(PD).
% Note: it may be needed to make FO-LPF discretization minimum phase first.
