Signal\Block Diagram Non-Linear

Use

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

Description

This model represents mechanical backlash between an input position and an output position.

 

output = 0; (input is within the dead zone)

output = input - zone/2; (input is increasing and out of the dead zone)

output = input + zone/2; (input is decreasing and out of the dead zone)

Parameters

 

zone

Size of the dead zone.

zone >= 0

initial

Value of the output at time = 0.

initial >= input(time = 0) - zone/2

initial <= input(time = 0) + zone/2
