How to calculate the norm of the transfer function in frequency domain?

33 views (last 30 days)
To calculate the norm of the transfer function by substituting s=jω is troublesome, especially for some complicated transfer functions. Is there a way to calculate the norm directly? Thanks!
For example, transfer funciton:
Substituting s=jω,
Thus we can plot the figure in frequency domain,
Matlab code:
G1_N=0.25e-2 .* omega .^ 2 + 0.1e1;
G1_D=((2 .* omega) - 0.15e0 .* (omega .^ 3)) .^ 2 + (0.1e1 + 0.5e-2 .* (omega .^ 4) - (omega .^ 2)) .^ 2;
G1=sqrt(G1_N ./ G1_D);

You don't need to multiply the function by its complex conjugate to get a purely real denominator. Just divide complex numerator by the complex denominator, to get a new complex number, and take the abs() of it.

Check out
doc tf
to learn how to create a transfer function (tf) object. Once you have G(s) defined as a tf object use bode() to compute its magnitude (and phase if desired)

Actually, I was thinking of the Control System Toolbox. I'm not famiiar with the System ID toolbox.
If just wanting to use base Matlab, I'd probably use polyval().

@Paul @William Rose Thanks to you. And we also can use the order 'freqs' to calculate the norm.
