    Due to an unprecedented abundance of automated spam messages, forum posts will usually go through manual premoderation. I am sorry for the inconvenience. I am looking into the issue of efficient spam rejection, but meanwhile the publication of your messages may be delayed.

    Hi,
    No, there is no overloading function `stepinfo()` for the fractional-order transfer function object yet, but the CST version can be employed as well. Consider an example:

    loadsets
    [y,t]=step(oustapp(G2));
    stepinfo(y,t,1)
    

    Here, I first load the example systems provided with FOMCON, then approximate a fractional-order system G2 by an integer-order one in the form of a refined Oustaloup recursive filter and obtain y and t vectors explicitly.

    Note, however, that approximation parameters for a particular system need to be thoroughly selected to obtain a feasible result.

    You may estimate the fractional-order transfer function by first creating a fidata() data structure from your y, u, and t vectors, containing output, input, and time instance values, respectively. Next, you could use either the graphical interface fotfid (more convenient) or the fid() function.

    It should also be possible, depending on the input/output time series data, to arrive at the frequency-domain representation of the system characteristics, but at the moment there are no tools in FOMCON that would do the conversion for you.

    At this point, the static gain cannot be explicitly set in the model structure.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the FOMCON support forum! You may supply the FOTF object as
    fotf('s^alpha','s^alpha+p')
    However, both parameters alpha and p must have particular numerical values. The general structure of the model will be retained.

    Hello, and thank you for your feedback!

    1. In order to run the optimization procedure, the plant does not need to be stable per se; however, you will most likely run into problems with unstable plants. Careful initial inspection of unstable systems is advised.

    2. Please check that your path is correctly set. Which version of MATLAB are you using? There is a backwards compatibility issue that appeared somewhere between R2010 and R2012 which is related to particular class methods and overloading thereof. This issue may need to be reported via the bug tracker.

    3. Yes, there are several upcoming conference papers illustrating the use of the toolbox. Unfortunately, I cannot publish these on the site. I am, however, planning on creating several tutorials covering some basics of using the toolbox. A complete user manual is also planned.

    Here is a patch for an issue with simulation/optimization of fractional-order systems with input-output delays reported here. Download: 0.3-alpha-patch-2013-03-05.zip

    Put the folders inside the patch into the fomcon root directory and overwrite the two affected files.
