Determination of a transfer function matrix in multivariable systems.

A conceptually simple method is presented for determination of the system transfer function matrix of linear multivariable systems described by their state-space equations. The polynomial coefficients of the transfer function matrix are computed directly by using the controllability matrix method and the transformation to canonical (phase-variable) form matrices, even if the transformation matrices are singular. The method does not require matrix inversion and calculation of eigenvalues, and requires only O ( d ) operations.
