Web-Based Control System Analysis and Design
The function builds a system with series interconnection of two subsystem models.
In this function, Sys1 should be the first subsystem, whose inputs will be the inputs
for whole system. Sys2 should be the second subsystem, whose outputs will be the
outputs for whole system. And some (or all) outputs of Sys1 are connected to the
inputs of Sys2.
In order to build the series connection system Sys, the user needs to fill out the
subsystem interconnection form which specifies how two susbsystems are connected.
The first line of the form specifies the output indices of Sys1 which are
connected to the input of Sys2. The second line of the form specifies the
input indices of Sys2 which are connected to the output of Sys1. The following
figure shows how to fill out the
interconnection form for a general series interconnection. You may also refer to
two examples below for specific systems.
