Ramp

Generate ramp signal

 

Description

Equations

Connections

Parameters

Description

The Ramp component generates a continuous, real, ramp signal.

The boolean parameter Smooth corners selects whether the corners are smoothed, the smoothness parameter, which can be varied from 0 to 1, determine the smoothness. If smoothness is greater than 0, the output signal has a continuous derivative. The smoothing interval is equal to the smoothness factor times half the ramp time.

Equations

If Smooth corners is false, the output signal is

y=offset+height{0tT0tT0TrtT0+Tr1otherwise

If Smooth corners is true, it is

y=offset+height{0tT0tT0Tr22S2StT0+STr212+tT0Tr2Tr22StT0+TrSTr21tT0TrTr22S2StT0+Tr1otherwise
