ion versus idealisation Applying both the abstraction (physical modelling) and idealisation (system identification) processes to the same situation can often be very revealing. For example, ignoring friction, inertia and compressibility and using physical reasoning, leads to an integrator model of an actuator. Including inertia and viscous friction, and applying Newton's Laws, leads to a model of the form of Figure 5; while allowing for fluid compressibility as well admits the possibility of… Expand
