Advanced Z-transform

In mathematics and signal processing, the advanced Z-transform is an extension of the Z-transform, to incorporate ideal delays that are not multiples of the sampling time. It takes the form


  • T is the sampling period
  • m (the "delay parameter") is a fraction of the sampling period

It is also known as the modified Z-transform.

The advanced Z-transform is widely applied, for example to accurately model processing delays in digital control.


If the delay parameter, m, is considered fixed then all the properties of the Z-transform hold for the advanced Z-transform.


Time shift[edit]


Time multiplication[edit]

Final value theorem[edit]


Consider the following example where :

If then reduces to the transform


which is clearly just the Z-transform of .
