In this paper, the effect of non-zero initial condition on the time domain responses of fractional-order systems using Caputo and Riemann-Liouville (RL) fractional definitions are discussed. Analytical formulas were derived for the step and square wave responses of fractional-order RCα circuit under RL and Caputo operators for non-zero initial condition. Moreover, a simulation scheme for fractional state-space systems with non-zero initial condition is introduced. © 2016 IEEE.
