Identification of Linear Systems
A Practical Guideline to Accurate Modeling

- R. Pintelon, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium
This book concentrates on the problem of accurate modeling of linear systems. It presents a thorough description of a method of modeling a linear dynamic invariant system by its transfer function. The first two chapters provide a general introduction and review for those readers who are unfamiliar with identification theory so that they have a sufficient background knowledge for understanding the methods described later. The main body of the book looks at the basic method used by the authors to estimate the parameter of the transfer function, how it is possible to optimize the excitation signals. Further chapters extend the estimation method proposed. Applications are then discussed and the book concludes with practical guidelines which illustrate the method and offer some rules-of-thumb.
For researchers and practising engineers who have to deal with the modeling of linear dynamic systems and specialists in identification theory.
