Abstract In this paper, we analyse the consistency of the Simplified Refined Instrumental Variable method for Continuous-time systems (SRIVC). It is well known that the intersample behaviour of the input signal influences the quality and accuracy of the results when estimating and simulating continuous-time models. Here, we present a comprehensive analysis on the consistency of the SRIVC estimator while taking into account the intersample behaviour of the input signal. The main result of the…

Enforcing stability through ellipsoidal inner approximations in the indirect approach for continuous-time system identification
By generating ellipsoids that contain parameter vectors whose coefficients yield stable polynomials, this paper introduces a convex constraint in the indirect prediction error method formulation, and shows that the proposed method enjoys optimal asymptotic properties while being robust in small and noisy data set scenarios.
