# frd

Frequency-response data model

## Description

Use `frd`

to create real-valued or complex-valued
frequency-response data models, or to convert dynamic system models to frequency-response data model
form.

Frequency-response data models store complex frequency response data with corresponding
frequency points. For example, a frequency-response data model *H*(*jw _{i}*), stores the frequency response at each input frequency

*w*, where

_{i}*i*= 1,…,

*n*. The

`frd`

model object can represent SISO or MIMO
frequency-response data models in continuous time or discrete time. For more information, see
Frequency Response Data (FRD) Models.You can also use `frd`

to create generalized frequency-response data
(`genfrd`

) models.

## Creation

You can obtain `frd`

models in one of the following ways.

Create the model from frequency response data using the

`frd`

command. For example, you can create an`frd`

model with frequency response data taken at specific frequencies.For an example, see SISO Frequency-Response Data Model.

Convert a linear model such as an

`ss`

model into an`frd`

model by computing the frequency response of the model at specified frequencies.For an example, see Convert State-Space Model to Frequency-Response Data Model.

Estimate the model using offline frequency response estimation workflows. These workflows require Simulink

^{®}Control Design™ software.For more information, see Estimate Frequency Response at the Command Line (Simulink Control Design) and Estimate Frequency Response Using Model Linearizer (Simulink Control Design).

following:

`sys.InputName = 'controls';`

The input names automatically expand to `{'controls(1)';'controls(2)'}`

.

You can use the shorthand notation `u`

that include input
channels `1`

and `2`

, and `3`

and
`5`

, respectively.

sys.InputGroup.controls = [1 2]; sys.InputGroup.noise = [3 5];

using the following.

`sys(:,'controls')`

By default, `InputGroup`

is a structure with no fields.

`OutputName`

— Output channel names

`''`

Output channel names, specified as one of the following:

A character vector, for single-output models.

Alternatively, you can assign output names for multi-output models using automatic vector
expansion. For example, if `sys`

is a two-output model, enter the
following.

The output names automatically expand to `{'measurements(1)';'measurements(2)'}`

.

You can also use the shorthand notation `y`

to assign
the output channels of MIMO systems into groups and refer to each group by name. The
field names of `OutputGroup`

are the group names and the field values
are the output channels of each group. For example, create output groups named
`temperature`

and `measurement`

that include
output channels `1`

, and `3`

and `5`

,
respectively.

sys.OutputGroup.temperature = [1]; sys.OutputGroup.measurement = [3 5];

You can then extract the subsystem from all inputs to the `measurement`

outputs using the following.

`sys('measurement',:)`

User-specified data that you want to associate with the system, specified as any MATLAB data type.

`SamplingGrid`

— Sampling grid for model arrays

structure array

Sampling grid for model arrays, specified as a structure array.

Use `SamplingGrid`

to track the variable values associated with each model in a model array, including identified linear time-invariant (IDLTI) model arrays.

Set the field names of the structure to the names of the sampling variables. Set the field values to the sampled variable values associated with each model in the array. All sampling variables must be numeric scalars, and all arrays of sampled values must match the dimensions of the model array.

For example, you can create an 11-by-1 array of linear models, `sysarr`

, by taking snapshots of a linear time-varying system at times `t = 0:10`

. The following code stores the time samples with the linear models.

` sysarr.SamplingGrid = struct('time',0:10)`

Similarly, you can create a 6-by-9 model array, `M`

, by independently sampling two variables, `zeta`

and `w`

. The following code maps the `(zeta,w)`

values to `M`

.

[zeta,w] = ndgrid(<6 values of zeta>,<9 values of w>) M.SamplingGrid = struct('zeta',zeta,'w',w)

When you display `M`

, each entry in the array includes the corresponding `zeta`

and `w`

values.

M

M(:,:,1,1) [zeta=0.3, w=5] = 25 -------------- s^2 + 3 s + 25 M(:,:,2,1) [zeta=0.35, w=5] = 25 ---------------- s^2 + 3.5 s + 25 ...

For model arrays generated by linearizing a Simulink model at multiple parameter values or operating points, the software populates `SamplingGrid`

automatically with the variable values that correspond to each entry in the array. For instance, the Simulink
Control Design commands `linearize`

(Simulink Control Design) and `slLinearizer`

(Simulink Control Design) populate `SamplingGrid`

automatically.

By default, `SamplingGrid`

is a structure with no fields.

### Discrete-Time MIMO Frequency-Response Data Model

For this example, consider randomly generated response data and frequencies.

Generate a 3-by-2-by-7 complex array and a frequency vector with seven points between 0.01 and 100 rad/s. Set the sample time `Ts`

to 5 seconds.

rng(0) r = randn(3,2,7)+1i*randn(3,2,7); w = logspace(-2,2,7); Ts = 5;

Create the model.

sys = frd(r,w,Ts)

sys = From input 1 to: Frequency(rad/s) output 1 output 2 ---------------- -------- -------- 0.0100 0.5377 + 0.3192i 1.8339 + 0.3129i 0.0464 -0.4336 + 1.0933i 0.3426 + 1.1093i 0.2154 0.7254 - 0.0068i -0.0631 + 1.5326i 1.0000 1.4090 - 1.0891i 1.4172 + 0.0326i 4.6416 0.4889 - 1.4916i 1.0347 - 0.7423i 21.5443 0.8884 - 0.1924i -1.1471 + 0.8886i 100.0000 0.3252 - 0.1774i -0.7549 - 0.1961i From input 1 to: Frequency(rad/s) output 3 ---------------- -------- 0.0100 -2.2588 - 0.8649i 0.0464 3.5784 - 0.8637i 0.2154 0.7147 - 0.7697i 1.0000 0.6715 + 0.5525i 4.6416 0.7269 - 1.0616i 21.5443 -1.0689 - 0.7648i 100.0000 1.3703 + 1.4193i From input 2 to: Frequency(rad/s) output 1 output 2 ---------------- -------- -------- 0.0100 0.8622 - 0.0301i 0.3188 - 0.1649i 0.0464 2.7694 + 0.0774i -1.3499 - 1.2141i 0.2154 -0.2050 + 0.3714i -0.1241 - 0.2256i 1.0000 -1.2075 + 1.1006i 0.7172 + 1.5442i 4.6416 -0.3034 + 2.3505i 0.2939 - 0.6156i 21.5443 -0.8095 - 1.4023i -2.9443 - 1.4224i 100.0000 -1.7115 + 0.2916i -0.1022 + 0.1978i From input 2 to: Frequency(rad/s) output 3 ---------------- -------- 0.0100 -1.3077 + 0.6277i 0.0464 3.0349 - 1.1135i 0.2154 1.4897 + 1.1174i 1.0000 1.6302 + 0.0859i 4.6416 -0.7873 + 0.7481i 21.5443 1.4384 + 0.4882i 100.0000 -0.2414 + 1.5877i Sample time: 5 seconds Discrete-time frequency response.

The specified data results in a two-input, three-output `frd`

model.

### Frequency-Response Data Model with Inherited Properties

For this example, create a frequency-response data model with properties inherited from a transfer function model.

Create a transfer function `sys1`

with the `TimeUnit`

property set to `'minutes'`

and `InputDelay`

property set to 3.

numerator1 = [2,0]; denominator1 = [1,8,0]; sys1 = tf(numerator1,denominator1,'TimeUnit','minutes','InputDelay',3)

sys1 = 2 s exp(-3*s) * --------- s^2 + 8 s Continuous-time transfer function.

propValues1 = {sys1.TimeUnit,sys1.InputDelay}

`propValues1=`*1×2 cell array*
{'minutes'} {[3]}

Create an `frd`

model with properties inherited from `sys1`

.

rng(0) response = randn(1,1,7)+1i*randn(1,1,7); w = logspace(-2,2,7); sys2 = frd(response,w,sys1)

sys2 = Frequency(rad/minute) Response --------------------- -------- 0.0100 0.5377 + 0.3426i 0.0464 1.8339 + 3.5784i 0.2154 -2.2588 + 2.7694i 1.0000 0.8622 - 1.3499i 4.6416 0.3188 + 3.0349i 21.5443 -1.3077 + 0.7254i 100.0000 -0.4336 - 0.0631i Input delays (minutes): 3 Continuous-time frequency response.

propValues2 = {sys2.TimeUnit,sys2.InputDelay}

`propValues2=`*1×2 cell array*
{'minutes'} {[3]}

Observe that the `frd`

model `sys2`

has that same properties as `sys1`

.

### Specify State and Input Names for Frequency-Response Data Model

For this example, load the frequency response data collected for a water tank model.

`load wtankData.mat`

The model has one input, Voltage, and one output, Water height.

Create an `frd`

model, specifying the input and output names.

sys = frd(response,frequency,'InputName','Voltage','OutputName','Height');

Plot the frequency response.

bode(sys)

The input and output names appear on the Bode plot. Naming the inputs and outputs can be useful when dealing with response plots for MIMO systems.

### Convert State-Space Model to Frequency-Response Data Model

For this example, compute the `frd`

model of the following state-space model:

$$\mathit{A}=\left[\begin{array}{cc}-2& -1\\ 1& -2\end{array}\right],\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathit{B}=\left[\begin{array}{cc}1& 1\\ 2& -1\end{array}\right],\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathit{C}=\left[\begin{array}{cc}1& 0\end{array}\right],\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathit{D}=\left[\begin{array}{cc}0& 1\end{array}\right]\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$$

Create a state-space model using the state-space matrices.

A = [-2 -1;1 -2]; B = [1 1;2 -1]; C = [1 0]; D = [0 1]; ltiSys = ss(A,B,C,D);

Convert the state-space model `ltiSys`

to a `frd`

model for frequencies between 0.01 and 100 rad/s.

w = logspace(-2,2,50); sys = frd(ltiSys,w);

Compare the frequency responses.

bode(ltiSys,'b',sys,'r--')

The responses are identical.

### Array of Frequency-Response Data Models

To create arrays of `frd`

models, you can specify a multidimensional array of frequency response data.

For instance, when you specify the response data as a numeric array of size [`NY`

`NU`

`NF`

`S1`

... `Sn`

], the function returns a `S1`

-by-...-by-`Sn`

array of `frd`

models. Each of these models has `NY`

outputs, `NU`

inputs, and `NF`

frequency points.

Generate a 2-by-3 array of random response data with one-output, two-input models at 10 frequency points between 0.1 and 10 rad/s.

w = logspace(-1,1,10); r = randn(1,2,10,2,3)+1i*randn(1,2,10,2,3); sys = frd(r,w);

### Frequency-Response Data Model with Negative Frequencies

You can specify negative frequency values in an frd object. This capability is useful when you want to capture the frequency response data of models with complex coefficients.

Create a frequency vector with both positive and negative values.

w0 = sort([-logspace(-2,2,50) 0 logspace(-2,2,50)]);

Create a state-space model with complex coefficients.

A = [-3.50,-1.25-0.25i;2,0]; B = [1;0]; C = [-0.75-0.5i,0.625-0.125i]; D = 0.5; Gc = ss(A,B,C,D);

Convert the model to an frd model at the specified frequencies.

sys = frd(Gc,w0);

Plot the frequency response of the models.

bode(Gc,'b',sys,'r--')

The plot responses match closely. The plot shows two branches for models with complex coefficients, one for positive frequencies, with a right-pointing arrow, and one for negative frequencies, with a left-pointing arrow. In both branches, the arrows indicate the direction of increasing frequencies.
