Domains: Continuous. Size: 1-D. Kind: Block Diagrams.

Description

This model delays its input signal one simulation step.

 

output = initial; (time = 0)

output = inp(time - hk); (time > 0)

 

where hk = simulation step size.

Note

To correctly use models with constant delays, simulation runs must be performed using integration algorithms with a constant time-step. Otherwise the model Delay-Time.emx should be used!

Parameters

 

initial

The initial output value.

Note

To correctly use models with constant delays, simulation runs must be performed using integration algorithms with a constant time-step. Otherwise the model Delay-Time.emx should be used!
The delay-step.emx submodel is non-linear: i.e. models which include the delay-step.emx submodel cannot be linearized. Use the linear time delay Delay-Pade.emx if you want to perform linearization.
