We study approaches to robust model-based design of experiments in the context of maximum-likelihood estimation. These approaches provide robustification of model-based methodologies for the design of optimal experiments by accounting for the effect of the parametric uncertainty. We study the problem of robust optimal design of experiments in the framework of nonlinear least-squares parameter estimation using linearized confidence regions. We investigate several well-known robustification… Expand


Robust model-based design of experiments for guaranteed parameter estimation
This work investigates several well-known frameworks in this respect and proposes a novel framework based on multi-stage robust optimization and demonstrates the findings and effectiveness of the proposed framework on a simple non-linear case study. Expand
A backoff strategy for model‐based experiment design under parametric uncertainty

Optimal Experiment Design in Nonlinear Parameter Estimation with Exact Confidence Regions
This work uses a methodology for a finite parametrization of the exact CRs within the OED problem and introduces a novel approximation technique of the exactly CRs using inner- and outer-approximating ellipsoids as a computationally less demanding alternative. Expand
Designing robust optimal dynamic experiments
Abstract The quality of experiments designed using standard optimisation-based techniques can be adversely affected by poor starting values of the parameters. Thus, there is a necessity for designExpand
A Probabilistic Approach to Robust Optimal Experiment Design with Chance Constraints
A robust OED approach for nonlinear systems with arbitrarily-shaped time-invariant probabilistic uncertainties with the inclusion of chance constraints to ensure constraint satisfaction in a stochastic setting is presented. Expand
Handling Uncertainty in Model-Based Optimal Experimental Design
In contrast to the majority of published works in the field of model-based optimal experimental design which focused on numerical studies so as to demonstrate the validity of the OED approach or theExpand
Robust optimal experiment design for system identification
This paper develops the idea of min-max robust experiment design for dynamic system identification and proposes a convex optimisation algorithm that can be applied more generally to a discretised approximation to the design problem. Expand
Robust experiment design via stochastic approximation
Abstract A new methodology is proposed for robust experiment design. It allows uncertainly in the nominal parameters of the model under study to be taken into account by assuming that theseExpand
Optimal Bayesian experiment design for nonlinear dynamic systems with chance constraints
A novel surrogate model based on arbitrary polynomial chaos (aPC) is proposed, which readily applies to any type of prior distribution and appears to have the potential to pave the way for real-time or sequential dynamic experiment design in a fully Bayesian setting. Expand
Optimal Experimental Design for Probabilistic Model Discrimination Using Polynomial Chaos
Abstract Building dynamic models is important in many applications including model-based design, optimization, and control. When multiple hypothesized models have predictions that are consistent withExpand
