Current value of Generalized Model
curval = getValue(M)
curval = getValue(M,blockvalues)
curval = getValue(M,Mref)
returns
the current value curval
= getValue(M
)curval
of the Generalized
LTI model or Generalized matrix M
.
The current value is obtained by replacing all Control
Design Blocks in M
by their current value.
(For uncertain blocks, the “current value” is the nominal
value of the block.)

the block names and corresponding values. Blocks of M

specified in blockvalues

.
This syntax is equivalent to curval
= getValue(M
,Mref.Blocks
).
Use this syntax to evaluate the current value of M
using
block values computed elsewhere (for example, tuned values obtained
with tuning commands such as systune
, looptune
,
or the Robust Control Toolbox™ command hinfstruct
(Robust Control Toolbox)).

Evaluate Model for Specified Values of its Blocks
This example shows how to replace a Control Design Block in
a Generalized LTI model with a specified replacement value using getValue
.
Consider the following closedloop system:
The following code creates a genss
model
of this system with $$G\left(s\right)=\frac{\left(s1\right)}{{\left(s+1\right)}^{3}}$$ and
a tunable PI controller C.
G = zpk(1,[1,1,1],1); C = tunablePID('C','pi'); Try = feedback(G*C,1)
The genss
model Try
has
one Control Design Block, C
. The block C
is
initialized to default values, and the model Try
has
a current value that depends on the current value of C
.
Use getValue
to evaluate C
and Try
to
examine the current values.
Evaluate C
to obtain its current
value.
Cnow = getValue(C)
This command returns a numeric pid
object
whose coefficients reflect the current values of the tunable parameters
in C
.
Evaluate Try
to obtain its current
value.
Tnow = getValue(Try)
This command returns a numeric model that is equivalent to feedback(G*Cnow,1)
.
Access Values of Tuned Models and Blocks
Propagate changes in block values from one model to another
using getValue
.
This technique is useful for accessing values of models and
blocks tuned with tuning commands such as systune
, looptune
,
or hinfstruct
(Robust Control Toolbox). For example,
if you have a closedloop model of your control system T0
,
with two tunable blocks, C1
and C2
,
you can tune it using:
[T,fSoft] = systune(T0,SoftReqs);
You can then access the tuned values of C1
and C2
,
as well as any closedloop model H
that depends
on C1
and C2
, using the following:
C1t = getValue(C1,T); C2t = getValue(C2,T); Ht = getValue(H,T);
