The subject is aimed to explanation of basic identification methods to obtain mathematical description of deterministic and stochastic systems. Experimental identification methods are explained for linear stochastic and deterministic dynamic systems in greater detail. The attention is also devoted to the numerical solution of identification algorithms. The course is concentrated to the most frequent methods which are applied in practice for identification of technological processes.


It is expected prior knowledge of basic control engineering and experience with Matlab.

Syllabus of lectures:

1) Fundamental terms and classification of identification methods

2) Time-invariant linear systems

3) Experimental identification of nonparametric models

4) Signal description using a frequency domain representation

5) Continuous and discrete models of linear time-invariant systems

6) Estimating parametric models from nonparametric models

7) Least-squares method

8) Numerical solutions for the least-squares estimate
