Identification of systems by quasilinearization
The theoretical development and application of a quasilinearization technique to problems of system identification is presented. A one-degree-of-freedom system is used for the examples for the identification problems. Several numerical experiments are presented relating the effects of noisy input data to the accuracy obtained in computing unknown parameters of the governing differential equations. Also presented is the application of quasilinearization to the identification problems of automobile coasting dynamics. Conclusions from these experiments are included.
