N-th order exponential smooth with constant averaging time
This information is part of the Business Simulation Library (BSL).
A smooth is an exponential information delay. It is typically used to model time lags in forming an expectation or in perceiving some information. A smooth of order
n is modeled as a cascade of
n first-order exponential smooth components, where the output of a preceding component is the input for its successor. The delay time for each smooth in the cascade will be
delayTimegiven (either as constant parameter or continuous signal) will effectively be clipped to a minimum value of
n × modelSettings.dt. The delay time for any first-order smooth in the cascade can thus never become smalle than
dt, which denotes the minimum process time anywhere in the model.
