System Identification

Theoretical and empirical study of various problems in system identification. Particular attention is paid to robust estimation of Multivariable and Nonlinear systems, and to error quantification.

Sub-Projects

System Identification Toolbox

This toolbox is a MATLAB-based software package for the estimation of dynamic systems.

A wide range of standard estimation approaches are supported. These include the use of non-parametric, subspace-based and prediction-error algorithms coupled (in the latter case) with either MIMO state space or MISO polynomial model structures.

Additionally, some new approaches are included. These include the support for bilinear and other Hammerstein-Wiener non-linear structures, and the use of the expectation-maximisation (EM) algorithm for time and frequency domain estimation of state space structures.

QPC - Quadratic Programming in C

This project offers a collection of software routines for solving quadratic programming problems that can be written in this form

x* = arg min 0.5x'Hx + f'x convex cost
s.t. Ax = b, linear equality constraints,
Lx <= k, general linear inequality constraints,
l <= x <= u, bound constraints.
The routines are written in C and callable from Matlab using the standard syntax. State-of-the-art solvers are available.

Filtering and Smoothing

This project offers a suite of software routines that run under Matlab, which perform various signal filtering and smoothing operations. This includes standard Kalman filtering and Kalman smoothing routines.
