ABSTRACT Estimation of physical parameters in dynamical systems driven by linear partial differential equations is an important problem. In this paper, we introduce the least costly experiment design framework for these systems. It enables parameter estimation with an accuracy that is specified by the experimenter prior to the identification experiment, while at the same time minimising the cost of the experiment. We show how to adapt the classical framework for these systems and take into…

Experiment design for identification of structured linear systems

This thesis introduces Stealth and Sensitivity methods that enable the applicability of the LCED framework to structured and unstructured systems regulated by unknown or nonlinear controllers and introduces the novel Minimum Experiment Time algorithm, which solves an optimisation problem formulated by Ebadat et al. (2014b).



Fractional modelling applied to heat conductivity and diffusivity estimation

Heat transfer in a homogeneous medium obeys diffusion phenomena, which can be modelled with the help of fractional systems. In this paper, we use fractional models based on an original fractional

Least-costly experiment design for uni-parametric linear models: An analytical approach

This work restricts ourselves to uni-parametric models, for which an analytical solution to the experiment design problem is derived, and addresses the following questions: What determines the frequency and amplitude of the excitation signal.

Optimal input signals for parameter estimation in dynamic systems--Survey and new results

This paper surveys the field of optimal input design for parameter estimation as it has developed over the last two decades, with a derivation of the Fisher information matrix for multiinput multioutput systems with process noise.

Input design via LMIs admitting frequency-wise model specifications in confidence regions

A framework for reformulating input design problems in prediction error identification as convex optimization problems is presented, allowing for statements such as "with at least 99% probability the model quality specifications will be satisfied".

Experiment design for batch-to-batch model-based learning control

An Experiment Design framework for dynamical systems which execute multiple batches is presented, formulated as a Convex Optimization problem which can be solved efficiently using standard algorithms.

Diffusion systems: stability, modeling, and identification

This paper presents an extended transfer function model and an identification algorithm that can handle the slowly decaying transients and, as a consequence, reduce the experiment time.
