# OSE800A Engineering System Identication Fall 2012 Lecture 1: Elements of System Identication: Measurement Systems, Experiment Design

## What is system identication?

For a given model characterized as x(t) = Ax(t) + Bu(t) y(t) = Cx(t) + Du(t), (1)

utilizing the measured records of the input u(t) and the output y(t), the task of system identication is to determine the system model parameters, (A, B, C, D).

## What is then dynamic response analysis?

For a given model characterized as x(t) = Ax(t) + Bu(t) y(t) = Cx(t) + Du(t), assuming that the system model parameters, (A, B, C, D) and the excitation u(t) are known, the task of dynamic response analysis is to obtain x(t). (2)

## System identication process

Develop an analytical model Establish the anticipated levels of responses Identify instrumentation needs, viz., actuators and sensors, their placement, etc. Carry out experiments (often many repeats for noisy systems) Employ system identication techniques to extract system parameters Construct experimentally determined model Update the analytical model, and if necessary repeat the process.

## Major thrusts of this course

Modal parameter identication or modal testing is a well-established discipline; System analysis and system identication for control problems are also a well-established discipline; However, model construction for each intended application is still wanting. For example, models for active control is normally dierent from models for passive vibration attenuation design purposes.

## Major thrusts of this course - contd

Hence, experimental model determination for active control provides a basis for a wider class of application models. In addition, system theory-based realization methods oer the engineers to directly access modern noise ltering techniques, and new data processing tools such as wavelets and other ltering tools.

## Emphasis of this course: Basic Theory

Learn system theory-based realization fundamentals that yield minimum and unique order of identied models for noise-free data; Learn to utilize both FFT and Wavelet bases for data processing; Employ singular value decomposition as an indirect way of ltering noises and data-smoothing; Learn how to apply Kalman lter and other lter theories Utilize the theory of observers for the improved identication of clustered frequencies and mode shapes.
