Properties of modulated and demodulated systems with implications to feedback limitations
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.1016/j.automatica.2005.07.009
It is well known that the poles, zeros and delay of a system play an important role in determining the associated feedback performance limitations. In this paper, we first derive an approximate transfer function for a modulated and demodulated system of a particular form. We next analyse the behaviour of the poles, zeros and delay of this transfer function when the modulation frequency is varied. Some implications of these results are also briefly discussed. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
