Title: Block-oriented Nonlinear System Identification—-Standard Least Square Methods and Least Square Methods for a Block-Oriented System
Author: Dr. Dongqing Wang
Location: W. A. Baker Chemistry Research Building (CRB) Room 114
Date: Wednesday, September 6
Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Abstract: System parameter identification has been a significant research topic due to its wide application in fault diagnosis, signal processing, process control and economic fields. In this presentation, the standard least squares (LS) method is first introduced. Secondly, least squares methods for block-oriented systems is introduced, including the over-parametrization based least squares (OP-LS) method, the hierarchical least squares (H-LS) method and the key term separation principle based least squares (KT-LS) method. The mentioned methods are applied to Hammerstein systems, Wiener systems, and Hammerstein-Wiener systems. Finally, the future research proposal is given related to the compressive sensing based identification methods. The main contributions are the proposed framework of the hierarchical least squares based identification method for block-oriented systems by using the hierarchical identification principle, and the presented auxiliary model based key term separation principle based least squares for block-oriented systems.
