I have an equation, something like this
lambda = sign [f(t)]*f(t-1)]
I am computing f(t) from the function block. So, it can be said that f(t) is the output of some function block in simulink. Now I need to find f(t-1), and then of course, find the lambda, which is based on the sign of the product. My doubt is, given f(t) as an output from the function block of simulink, how can I find f(t-1), and finally how to find the lambda.
As it can be seen from the simulink model screenshot, I have delE_by_delW_1 (call it f(t)) as an output of the function block. I want delE_by_delW_1 at time t-1 to find the lambda. Here, I am using unit delay block. But, the output it gives is as if unit delay block is not there. So, how should I solve this problem?
According to the documentation, the unit delay block is for discrete signals. I am guessing your function f(t) is a continuous time signal and hence you should try using the Memory Block. Then, to calculate lambda you can input the product to the Sign Block. I have included a rough picture below.
