The controllability of both continuous and discrete periodic systems are evaluated. The controllability for continuous periodic systems is extended to unit period control, and these results are then directly extended to discrete periodic systems. An assessment is made on retaining periodic system controllability during discretisation, resulting in the conclusion that there is no loss in the controllability of linear periodic systems during discretisation when using a nonequidistant sampling pattern.
