Identification of Linear Systems : A practical Guideline to Accurate Modeling
The book is concentrated on the problem of accurate modelling of linear time invariant systems. These models can be continuous time (Laplace-domain) or discrete time (Z-domain). The complete experimental procedure is discussed: how to create optimal experiments (optimization of excitation signals), how to estimate the model parameters from the measurements, how to select between different models, etc. These problems are thoroughly discussed in the first section of the book. A profound theoretical development of the proposed identification algorithm is also made in this section. The second part consists of detailed illustrations of the proposed algorithms on practical problems: modelling an electronic, electrical, acoustic, mechanical system… Finaly the book is completed with a practical guideline to help the user making the correct choises.
