Controllability and observability of linear electrical circuits

Tadeusz Kaczorek


The controllability and observability of linear electrical circuits composed of resistors, coils, capacitors and voltage (current) sources are addressed. It is shown that: 1) the linear electrical circuits are uncontrollable and unobservable if and only if their parameters satisfy some special conditions, 2) the uncontrollable pair (A,B) (unobservable pair (A,C)) of the electrical circuit can be decomposed into controllable (observable) and uncontrollable (unobservable) parts, 3) the transfer matrices of the uncontrollable electrical circuit are zero. The considerations are illustrated by examples of linear circuits.
