In Chapter 5 we discuss how to produce block diagrams for the simulation of linear and certain nonlinear systems described by ordinary differential equations.

## Simulating linear systems with non-zero initial conditions

I have discussed in another post how to work with state-space models to simulate the response of linear systems using Matlab’s `lsim`

. It is however also possible to approach this problem from a transfer-function point of view without having to mess with state-space at all.

## Simulating linear systems with non-zero initial conditions in state space

Matlab’s `lsim`

function for simulating linear systems will give you the option to provide an initial condition if your system is in state-space but not for transfer-functions.

## Simulating linear systems with Matlab’s lsim

In this post we will go over a couple of ways to simulate linear systems in Matlab.
