We consider a modulated fluid system with a finite state-space Markov chain Jt as modulating process and general state-dependent net input rates. We derive differential equations for the transient and the stationary distribution of (Wt, Jt), where Wt is the content process, and the corresponding Laplace transforms with respect to time. Moreover, we study the level hitting times of Wt. Our results lead to explicit formulas in the case of two modulating states.
