Steady-state solutions represent the long-term response of linear systems due to specified input signals. The total response is initially contaminated with transients, which disguise the long-term/operating response of a system. Except for certain ideal cases, even in systems of low dimension, the steady-state solution is typically obtained by simulation of the system until the transient part of the response is sufficiently negligible. This investigation elaborates on a method of determining the initial conditions that spontaneously give rise to steady-state solutions of forced linear differential equations. The method is applicable to stable, as well as non-stable systems, of any order.
