# c2d

Computes a discrete-time state-space model from a continuous-time state-space model.

## Syntax

SYSD = c2d(SYSC, Ts)

SYSD = c2d(SYSC, Ts, METHOD)

SYSD = c2d(SYSC, Ts, 'prewarp', W0)

## Inputs

`SYSC`- Continuous-time state-space model.
`Ts`- Sampling time in seconds.
`METHOD`- A string to specify the method used to convert the
`SYSC`model to the SYSD model.- zoh
- Zero-Order-Hold method (default method).
- prewarp
- Pre-warp method. This method requires
`W0`. - tustin
- Tustin approximation method.
- bilin
- Bilinear transformation.

`W0`- The pre-warp frequency.

## Outputs

- SYSD
- A discrete-time state-space model.

## Example

```
A = [10.0 5;
5 10 ];
B = [0.0 -10;
10 0.0 ];
C = [-10 0.0;
0.0 10 ];
D = [10 0.0;
0.0 -10 ];
ResSys1 = c2d (ss (A, B, C, D), 2, 'zoh')
```

`
ResSys1 = object [
Scaled: 0
TimeUnit: seconds
ts: 2
a: [Matrix] 2 x 2
5.34324e+12 5.34324e+12

d: [Matrix] 2 x 2

`ResSys2 = c2d (ss (A, B, C, D), 2, 'prewarp',0.5) %For the same state space matrices given above`

## Comments

Computes a discrete-time state-space model from a continuous-time state-space model.

SYSD = c2d(SYS, Ts, METHOD) computes the discrete-time
approximation of the continuous-time systems models `SYS`, with sampling
period `T`'s using `METHOD`.

Based on the SLICOT library functions ab04md and expm.
