How to determine load cell response to arbitrary temperature changes with known step response(s)

We have a loadcell, the output of which is (naturally) temperature dependent. Under static load conditions, we have observed a dynamic response to temperature changes. Therefore, we did a step ...

How to recover the LTI system step response by the known output and input signals?

Having the input signal as a step-like pulse and the output as its distorted version after passing through the system: is it possible to somehow recover the step response of the system? In the Figure ...

Not getting the same step response from Laplace transform and it's respective difference equation

I am trying to simulate a plant on a microcontroller. The transfer function of the plant is $$ G_{p} \left( s \right) = \frac{2}{\left( s + 3 \right) \left( s - 1 \right)} \tag{1} \label{1}$$ The step ...

Fit a harmonic oscilator via step response

Suppose we are studying a dynamic system believed to be well modeled via $$ x'' + \frac bm x' + \frac cm x = \frac Fm$$ $x''$ - acceleration $b$ - damping factor $c$ - spring rate $F$ - external force....

Poles and zeros from step reponse?

Is there a numerically robust method for calculating the poles and zeros of a discrete-time causal LTI SISO system given its response to a unit-step input? In the specific example I'm working on all ...

Convolution of Heaviside function with a sinc low pass, is it band limited?

Is the result of convolution of a heaviside function with a sinc low pass with cut off at fc, say 25khz, band limited ((sin(2 x Pi x fc x i))/(Pi x i))? I've been working it out in frequency domain (...
