Transients mask the initial portion of an output signal preventing immediate analysis of the desired operational steady-state response and requiring, at times, lengthy simulation techniques to be employed. This investigation demonstrates a method for readily determining initial conditions that suppress transient solutions to forced discrete-time linear systems, and addresses the necessary theoretical precursors to obtaining the steady-state components of a response. The method is applicable to stable as well as, in principle, unstable systems of any order.
