I was reading a control system book by Saadat. I learned that I can used matlab to convert an ODE to state space phase variable by using the cofficient. The example from the book is below
ai = [2 4 6 8];
k = 10;
[A,B,C] = ode2phv(ai,k)
However, when I tried this example in Matlab, I got an error message saying
'??? Undefined function or method 'ode2phv' for input arguments of type 'double'.
Based on the errpr message, I decided to make an M-file and after running the M-file I got another error message:
Error in ==> ABC2phv at 3 [A,B,C]=ode2phv(a,K)
Therefore, I decided to check if I could find the command or function [A,B,C]=ode2phv(a,K) in my mylab .But when I checked the help, I couldnt find any command or function with [A,B,C]=ode2phv(a,K).
Can anyone help me out? How can I convert any ordinary differential equation to state space? Why is this command [A,B,C]=ode2phv(a,K) not working in my matlab?
I look forward to your help.
Thanks in Advance
