Control functionality in C++

Classic PIDF control

P, PI, PD and PID control:

#include <control/classic/pid.h>
// ...
// Ts = 1.0s, K = 1.0, Ti = 2.0
PI controller(1, 1, 2);
for( int i = 0; i < 10; i++ )
std::cout << controller.step(1.0) << std::endl;
// 1.5 2.0 2.5 ...

Based on trapezoidal (Tustin) discretizations of the standard (serial) PID controller.

PI, PD and PID are use Biquads and expose functionality like .poles().

Biquad Digital Filters

Biquads, or Second Order Sections (SOS), are transfer functions consisting of a ratio of two quadratic polynomials. With z operator:

b0 + b1 z^-1 + b2 z^-2
H(z) = ----------------------
1 + a1 z^-1 + a2 z^-2

(normalized by a0)

Biquads can be chained to obtain higher-order transfer-functions.

The implementation of Biquads in this library is based on the Direct-form II transposed implementation.

// 2-nd order Butterworth LP filter with Wc =~ 0.1 (* half sample-rate)
float b0 = 0.02, b1 = 0.04, b2 = 0.02;
float a1 = -1.56, a2 = 0.64;
Biquad<float> b(b0, b1, b2, a1, a2);
for(int i=0; i<5; i++)
std::cout << b.step(1) << std::endl;
// 0.02.., 0.09.., 0.22.., ...

Retrieving the poles of a Biquad:

// Tuple of two std::complex<T>
auto ps = b.poles();
// std::complex<T>
auto p1 = std::get<0>(ps);
auto p2 = std::get<1>(ps);

System Identification

Pseudo-Random Binary Signal

Expose a system to a PRBS to identify its transfer characteristics.

auto i = P.get(); // 1 of -1

State-Space Systems

State-spaces allow representation of LTI discretized systems with Nx states, Nu inputs and Ny outputs.

// 2nd order SISO state-space
ss2::TA A << 1, 1, 0, 1;
ss2::TA B << 0, 1;
ss2::TC C << 1, 0;
ss2::TD D << 0;
ss2 P(A,B,C,D);
// 3th order MIMO state-space
ss3::TA A << /* ... */ ;
// ...
ss3 P3(A,B,C,D);
ss3::Tu u << 1, 2;
auto y = P3.step(u);
// y(0), y(1)

This functionality is based upon the Eigen3 Matrix math library. Eigen takes care of target-specific vectorization!
