sectorplotoptions

Create list of relative index plot options

    Description

    Use the sectorplotoptions command to create a SectorPlotOptions object to customize your sector plot appearance. You can also use the command to override the plot preference settings in the MATLAB® session in which you create the sector plots.

    Creation

    Description

    example

    plotoptions = sectorplotoptions returns a default set of plot options for use with the passiveplot and sectorplot commands. You can use these options to customize the plot appearance using the command line. This syntax is useful when you want to write a script to generate plots that look the same regardless of the preference settings of the MATLAB session in which you run the script.

    example

    plotoptions = sectorplotptions('cstprefs') initializes the plot options with the options you selected in the Control System Toolbox™ Preferences Editor. For more information about the editor, see Toolbox Preferences Editor. This syntax is useful when you want to change a few plot options but otherwise use your default preferences. A script that uses this syntax can generate results that look different when run in a session with different preferences.

    Input label style, specified as a structure with the following fields:

    Object Functions

    passiveplotCompute or plot passivity index as function of frequency
    sectorplotCompute or plot sector index as function of frequency

    Examples

    collapse all

    For this example, create a passivity index plot that uses 15-point red text for the title. This plot looks the same in any MATLAB® session, regardless of the preferences of the one in which it is generated.

    First, create a default options set using sectorplotoptions.

    plotoptions = sectorplotoptions;

    Next, change the required properties of the options set plotoptions.

    plotoptions.Title.FontSize = 15;
    plotoptions.Title.Color = [1 0 0];
    plotoptions.FreqUnits = 'Hz';
    plotoptions.Grid = 'on';

    Now, create a passivity index plot using the options set plotoptions.

    G = tf(1,[1 1]);
    passiveplot(G,plotoptions)

    Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type line. This object represents G.

    Because plotoptions begins with a fixed set of options, the plot result is independent of the toolbox preferences of the current MATLAB session.

    For this example, create a relative sector plot of a model with complex coefficients. Then, turn the grid on, rename the plot, and change the frequency scale.

    Create a state space model with complex data and specify a sector geometry.

    A = [-3.50,-1.25-0.25i;2,0];
    B = [1;0];
    C = [-0.75-0.5i,0.625-0.125i];
    D = 0.5;
    Hc = [ss(A,B,C,D);1];
    Q = [1 0.1;0.1 -1];

    Create an options set based on the toolbox preferences.

    plotoptions = sectorplotoptions('cstprefs');
    plotoptions.Grid = 'on';
    plotoptions.FreqScale = 'linear';
    plotoptions.Title.String = 'Relative Sector Index Plot of Complex-Coefficient Model';

    Now, create a sector plot with custom option set plotoptions.

    sectorplot(Hc,Q,plotoptions)

    Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type line. This object represents Hc.
