Automatic control: control system identification (AU-ID)

Identify a process to build a mathematical model from inputs/outputs recording

Specifying tests

Choose test scenarios – Choose sample time – Anti-aliasing filters – Conduct tests – Closed loop tests

Understanding numerical identification

Define identification goals – Analyze test results – Set numerical identification process – Closed-loop identification – Validate an identified model

Discovering identification methods

Simple least squares methods – Recursive least squares method – Unbiased estimators method – Instrumental variable methods – Generalised least squares method – Extended least squares method – Output error method

Identify nonlinear systems

Principle – IT structure to build – Application with an example
