hello!! I hope you can help me out. I need to find the Z tansform from a Laplace expresi�n: 5(1-e^-sT)/s(s+1)(s+2) Now, I know that there is a table to calculate this but I can't find anything on the web, maybe you have one, or you'd know someway to solve this, I really need it, I hope you can help me, thanks!

I am not doing the whole calculation! H=2ES

Unless you're willing to allow expressions with ln(z)/T, or unless you specify your system more thoroughly, you can't get an exact transformation between a Laplace model and a z-domain model. If you want an approximation you need to share information about how your sampling rate relates to your delay time and your pole positions. You can get an exact z-domain representation of a system that has a plant as described above plus a sampling stage (such as an ADC) and a hold stage (such as a DAC), but you have to specify what those stages are, as well as your sampling rate. So please, ask your question in a sensible way and maybe someone will give you a sensible answer. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Posting from Google?

In control text books they include this a lot. It's historical and goes back to the days when they couldn't sample high enough and had to include it. Of course I suppose you need always include it but it gets negligible the higher you sample. H=2ES
