Control Systems in Practice, Part 7: 4 Ways to Implement a Transfer Function in Code

In some situations, it is easier to design a controller or a filter using continuous, s-domain transfer functions. We have a lot of mathematical tools that make analyzing and manipulating them easier than, say, their equivalent time-domain differential equations. However, while we like to work with transfer functions for design and analysis, it’s often the case that we need to implement them in software that runs on some processor or microcontroller, and it might not be obvious how to go about doing this. So, in this video we’ll cover four simple ways to implement a transfer function in code.
