SoftIntegration Releases Ch Control System Toolkit
DAVIS, Calif., October 17, 2002 -
SoftIntegration, Inc., the leader of
scripting technology for ubiquitous computing,
today announced the release of
Ch Control System Toolkit.
Ch is a superset of C interpreter for scripting, 2D/3D plotting and numerical computing. Ch Control System Toolkit is designed for modeling, design, and analysis of continuous-time or discrete-time linear time invariant (LTI) control systems.
Ch Control System Toolkit supports most classical and modern control techniques through object-oriented programming based on a control class. It is simple and easy to use.
A control system can be modeled in the form of transfer functions, zero-pole-gain, or state-space. Ch Control System Toolkit can perform analysis and design of control systems in both time and frequency domains with extensive graphical plotting capabilities. In addition, it can seamlessly interface existing C/C++ code in either source code or binary libraries without re-compilation.
Below is the root locus plot from a program using Ch Control System Toolkit
across different platforms.
Ch Control System Toolkit contains the following major features:
Different from other similar control software
packages, programs written in
Ch Control System Toolkit can
existing C/C++ code in either source code or binary static/dynamical libraries without
Implemented as a class,
Ch Control System Toolkit is object-oriented.
With Embedded Ch,
Ch programs using Control System Toolkit can be embedded
in other C/C++ application programs.
Support multiple model representations such as
state-space models, transfer function, and zero-pole-gain
models both for continuous-time and discrete-time
linear time invariant (LTI) systems.
When a system is created using one of these three
models, the Ch Control System Toolkit automatically converts
it to other two models internally and keeps the information
of these three models for user to retrieve.
Continuous/Discrete Systems Conversions
Provide the capability of converting from continuous to discrete,
discrete to continuous, and discrete to discrete system.
System Interconnecting and Reduction
Construct arbitrary complex system models given
in a block diagram form by using interconnecting
Time Domain Analysis
Compute the time responses to arbitrary inputs and
initial conditions for both SISO and MIMO systems.
The typical inputs are step and impulse inputs.
The output responses can be displayed by either a plot
or a data set.
Frequency Domain Analysis
Generate commonly used frequency response plots of
Bode, Nyquist and Nichols plots. Calculates the bandwidth,
DC gain, gain and phase margins of a SISO system
for system dynamics and stability analysis.
Root Locus Design
Calculate and plots the root locus of a SISO system.
Controllability and Observability
Construct the controllability and observability matrices.
Determines the controllability and observability of systems.
Calculates the controllability and observability grammians of
a state-space model.
Find the control-law and estimator that will
allow the user to select
a set of pole locations for a satisfactory system
Optimal Control System Design and Equation Solvers
Calculate LQ-optimal gain for both continuous and
Solves continuous and discrete-time Lyapunov equations.
Provide many plotting functions to allow output visually displayed or exported as external files with a variety of different file formats. They can also readily be copied and pasted in other applications such as Word in Windows.
Ch Control System Toolkit is based on Ch Professional Edition. It costs $499 for commercial and $199 for academic. It can run cross platform in Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and HP-UX.
