This paper deals with on-line identification of continuous-time systems with structured entries. Such entries, which may consist in inputs, perturbations or piecewise polynomial (time varying) parameters, can be defined as signals that can be easily annihilated. The proposed cancellation method allows to obtain non asymptotic estimators for the unknown… (More)
In this paper we discuss delay estimation in time-delay systems. In the Introduction a short overview is given of some existing estimation techniques as well as identifiability studies. In the following sections we propose several algorithms for the delay identification based on variable structure observers.
A fast identification algorithm is proposed for systems with delayed inputs. It is based on a non-asymptotic distributional estimation technique initiated in the framework of systems without delay. Such technique leads to simple realization schemes, involving integrators, multipliers and piecewise polynomial or exponential time functions. Thus, it allows… (More)
— This paper is concerned with the determination of the switching times for linear time-invariant switched systems. Using a distribution framework, an implementable computational method is proposed in order to obtain a finite time estimation of the switching times by explicit and non asymp-totic formulae, avoiding derivative measurements. The above… (More)
— This paper aims at estimating the switching time for linear switched systems, i.e. the time instant when a sub-model is switched on while another one is switched off. Assuming that the state of the active sub-models is known, a distribution point of view is adopted to get a real-time estimation of these switching times. Real-time means that an explicit… (More)
