    Full Text Available The primary difficulty in the identification of Hammerstein nonlinear systems (a static memoryless nonlinear system in series with a dynamic linear system is that the output of the nonlinear system (input to the linear system is unknown. By employing the theory of affine projection, we propose a gradient-based adaptive Hammerstein algorithm with variable step-size which estimates the Hammerstein nonlinear system parameters. The adaptive Hammerstein nonlinear system parameter estimation algorithm proposed is accomplished without linearizing the systems nonlinearity. To reduce the effects of eigenvalue spread as a result of the Hammerstein system nonlinearity, a new criterion that provides a measure of how close the Hammerstein filter is to optimum performance was used to update the step-size. Experimental results are presented to validate our proposed variable step-size adaptive Hammerstein algorithm given a real life system and a hypothetical case.

    The problem of determining a mathematical model for an unknown system by observing its input-output data pair is generally referred to as system identification. A behavioral model reproduces the required behavior of the original analyzed system, such as there is a one-to-one correspondence between the behavior of the original system and the simulated system. This paper presents nonlinear system identification and behavioral modeling using a work assignment.

By employing the nonlinear autoregressive moving average with exogenous input (NARMAX) technique, the parametric model of power electronic systems can be derived from the time-domain data.

    Feldman, Michael; Braun, Simon

    2017-02-01

    This paper deals with the identification of nonlinear vibration systems, based on measured signals for free and forced vibration regimes. Two categories of time domain signal are analyzed, one of a fast inter-modulation signal and a second as composed of several mono-components. To some extent, this attempts to imitate analytic studies of such systems, with its two major analysis groups - the perturbation and the harmonic balance methods. Two appropriate signal processing methods are then investigated, one based on demodulation and the other on signal decomposition. The Hilbert Transform (HT) has been shown to enable effective and simple methods of analysis. We show that precise identification of the nonlinear parameters can be obtained, contrary to other average HT based methods where only approximation parameters are obtained. The effectiveness of the proposed methods is demonstrated for the precise nonlinear system identification, using both the signal demodulation and the signal decomposition methods. Following the exposition of the tools used, both the signal demodulation as well as decomposition are applied to classical examples of nonlinear systems. Cases of nonlinear stiffness and damping forces are analyzed. These include, among other, an asymmetric Helmholtz oscillator, a backlash with nonlinear turbulent square friction, and a Duffing oscillator with dry friction.

    1995-08-01

    Nonlinear forces acting on offshore structures are examined from a system identification perspective. The nonlinearities are induced by ocean waves and may become significant in many situations. They are not necessarily in the form of Morison`s equation. Various wave force models are examined. The force function is either decomposed into a set of base functions or it is expanded in terms of the wave and structural kinematics. The resulting nonlinear system is decomposed into a number of parallel no-memory nonlinear systems, each followed by a finite-memory linear system. A conditioning procedure is applied to decouple these linear sub-systems; a frequency domain technique involving autospectra and cross-spectra is employed to identify the linear transfer functions. The structural properties and those force transfer parameters are determine with the aid of the coherence functions. The method is verified using simulated data. It provides a versatile and noniterative approach for dealing with nonlinear interaction problems encountered in offshore structural analysis and design.

    Fullana, Jose-Maria; Rossi, Maurice

    2002-03-01

    Model identifications based on orbit tracking methods are here extended to stochastic differential equations. In the present approach, deterministic and statistical features are introduced via the time evolution of ensemble averages and variances. The aforementioned quantities are shown to follow deterministic equations, which are explicitly written within a linear as well as a weakly nonlinear approximation. Based on such equations and the observed time series, a cost function is defined. Its minimization by simulated annealing or backpropagation algorithms then yields a set of best-fit parameters. This procedure is successfully applied for various sampling time intervals, on a stochastic Lorenz system.

    2017-01-01

    This paper focuses on the identification of the nonlinear vibration system of power transformers. A Hammerstein model is used to identify the system with electrical inputs and the vibration of the transformer tank as the output. The nonlinear property of the system is modelled using a Fourier neural network consisting of a nonlinear element and a linear dynamic block. The order and weights of the network are determined based on the Lipschitz criterion and the back-propagation algorithm. This system identification method is tested on several power transformers. Promising results for predicting the transformer vibration and extracting system parameters are presented and discussed.

    2009-04-01

    A novel approach for nonlinear complex system identification based on internal recurrent neural networks (IRNN) is proposed in this paper. The computational complexity of neural identification can be greatly reduced if the whole system is decomposed into several subsystems. This approach employs internal state estimation when no measurements coming from the sensors are available for the system states. A modified backpropagation algorithm is introduced in order to train the IRNN for nonlinear system identification. The performance of the proposed design approach is proven on a car simulator case study.

    2011-08-01

    A new approach for nonlinear system identification and control based on modular neural networks (MNN) is proposed in this paper. The computational complexity of neural identification can be greatly reduced if the whole system is decomposed into several subsystems. This is obtained using a partitioning algorithm. Each local nonlinear model is associated with a nonlinear controller. These are also implemented by neural networks. The switching between the neural controllers is done by a dynamical switcher, also implemented by neural networks, that tracks the different operating points. The proposed multiple modelling and control strategy has been successfully tested on simulated laboratory scale liquid-level system.

    1996-12-31

    The paper introduces a method of identification of non-linear systems encountered in marine engineering applications. The non-linearity is accounted for by a combination of linear subsystems and known zero-memory non-linear transformations; an equivalent linear multi-input-single-output (MISO) system is developed for the identification problem. The unknown transfer functions of the MISO system are identified by assembling a system of linear equations in the frequency domain. This system is solved by performing the Cholesky decomposition of a related matrix. It is shown that the proposed identification method can be interpreted as a {open_quotes}Gram-Schmidt{close_quotes} type of orthogonal decomposition of the input-output quantities of the equivalent MISO system. A numerical example involving the identification of unknown parameters of flow (ocean wave) induced forces on offshore structures elucidates the applicability of the proposed method.

    Full Text Available A new method of identifying parameters of nonlinearly vibrating system in frequency domain is presented in this paper. The problems of parameter identification of the nonlinear dynamic system with nonlinear elastic force or nonlinear damping force are discussed. In the method, the mathematic model of parameter identification is frequency response function. Firstly, by means of perturbation method the frequency response function of weakly nonlinear vibration system is derived. Next, a parameter transformation is made and the frequency response function becomes a linear function of the new parameters. Then, based on this function and with the least square method, physical parameters of the system are identified. Finally, the applicability of the proposed technique is confirmed by numerical simulation.

    Full Text Available Identification of concentrated nonlinearity in the torsional spring of an aeroelastic system is performed. This system consists of a rigid airfoil that is supported by a linear spring in the plunge motion and a nonlinear spring in the pitch motion. Quadratic and cubic nonlinearities in the pitch moment are introduced to model the concentrated nonlinearity. The representation of the aerodynamic loads by the Duhamel formulation yielded accurate values for the flutter speed and frequency. The results show that the use of the Duhamel formulation to represent the aerodynamic loads yields excellent agreement between the experimental data and the numerical predictions.

  16. Nonlinear identification of MDOF systems using Volterra series approximation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Prawin, J.; Rao, A. Rama Mohan

    2017-02-01

    Most of the practical engineering structures exhibit nonlinearity due to nonlinear dynamic characteristics of structural joints, nonlinear boundary conditions and nonlinear material properties. Meanwhile, the presence of non-linearity in the system can lead to a wide range of structural behavior, for example, jumps, limit cycles, internal resonances, modal coupling, super and sub-harmonic resonances, etc. In this paper, we present a Volterra series approximation approach based on the adaptive filter concept for nonlinear identification of multi-degree of freedom systems, without sacrificing the benefits associated with the traditional Volterra series approach. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated using two classical single degrees of freedom systems (breathing crack problem and Duffing Holmes oscillator) and later we extend to multi-degree of freedom systems.

    Ning, Hanwen; Jing, Xingjian; Cheng, Li

    2011-09-01

    The identification of nonlinear spatiotemporal systems is of significance to engineering practice, since it can always provide useful insight into the underlying nonlinear mechanism and physical characteristics under study. In this paper, nonlinear spatiotemporal system models are transformed into a class of multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) partially linear systems (PLSs), and an effective online identification algorithm is therefore proposed by using a pruning error minimization principle and least square support vector machines. It is shown that many benchmark physical and engineering systems can be transformed into MIMO-PLSs which keep some important physical spatiotemporal relationships and are very helpful in the identification and analysis of the underlying system. Compared with several existing methods, the advantages of the proposed method are that it can make full use of some prior structural information about system physical models, can realize online estimation of the system dynamics, and achieve accurate characterization of some important nonlinear physical characteristics of the system. This would provide an important basis for state estimation, control, optimal analysis, and design of nonlinear distributed parameter systems. The proposed algorithm can also be applied to identification problems of stochastic spatiotemporal dynamical systems. Numeral examples and comparisons are given to demonstrate our results.

    Banks, H. T.; Lo, C. K.; Reich, Simeon; Rosen, I. G.

    1989-01-01

    An abstract approximation framework and convergence theory for the identification of first and second order nonlinear distributed parameter systems developed previously by the authors and reported on in detail elsewhere are summarized and discussed. The theory is based upon results for systems whose dynamics can be described by monotone operators in Hilbert space and an abstract approximation theorem for the resulting nonlinear evolution system. The application of the theory together with numerical evidence demonstrating the feasibility of the general approach are discussed in the context of the identification of a first order quasi-linear parabolic model for one dimensional heat conduction/mass transport and the identification of a nonlinear dissipation mechanism (i.e., damping) in a second order one dimensional wave equation. Computational and implementational considerations, in particular, with regard to supercomputing, are addressed.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Londoño, Julián M.; Cooper, Jonathan E.; Neild, Simon A.

    2017-02-01

    This paper presents a method for the dynamic identification of structures containing discrete nonlinear stiffnesses. The approach requires the structure to be excited at a single resonant frequency, enabling measurements to be made in regimes of large displacements where nonlinearities are more likely to be significant. Measured resonant decay data is used to estimate the system backbone curves. Linear natural frequencies and nonlinear parameters are identified using these backbone curves assuming a form for the nonlinear behaviour. Numerical and experimental examples, inspired by an aerospace industry test case study, are considered to illustrate how the method can be applied. Results from these models demonstrate that the method can successfully deliver nonlinear models able to predict the response of the test structure nonlinear dynamics.

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available One interesting application of system identification method is to identify and control the heat transfer from the exhaust valve to the seat to keep away the valve from being damaged. In this study, two co-axial cylindrical specimens are used as exhaust valve and its seat. Using the measured temperatures at different locations of the specimens and with a semi-analytical method, the temperature distribution of the specimens is calculated and consequently, the thermal contact conductance is calculated. By applying the system identification method and having the temperatures at both sides of the contact surface, the temperature transfer function is calculated. With regard to the fact that the thermal contact has nonlinear behavior, two nonlinear black-box models called nonlinear ARX and NLN Hammerstein-Wiener models are taken for accurate estimation. Results show that the NLN Hammerstein-Wiener models with wavelet network nonlinear estimator is the best.

    The process of implementing a damage detection strategy for aerospace, civil and mechanical engineering infrastructure is referred to as structural health monitoring (SHM). In many cases damage causes a structure that initially behaves in a predominantly linear manner to exhibit nonlinear response when subject to its operating environment. The formation of cracks that subsequently open and close under operating loads is an example of such damage. The damage detection process can be significantly enhanced if one takes advantage of these nonlinear effects when extracting damage-sensitive features from measured data. This paper will provide an overview of nonlinear system identification techniques that are used for the feature extraction process. Specifically, three general approaches that apply nonlinear system identification techniques to the damage detection process are discussed. The first two approaches attempt to quantify the deviation of the system from its initial linear characteristics that is a direct result of damage. The third approach is to extract features from the data that are directly related to the specific nonlinearity associated with the damaged condition. To conclude this discussion, a summary of outstanding issues associated with the application of nonlinear system identification techniques to the SHM problem is presented.

    2017-02-01

    The progress accomplished during the past decade in nonlinear system identification in structural dynamics is considerable. The objective of the present paper is to consolidate this progress by challenging the community through a new benchmark structure exhibiting complex nonlinear dynamics. The proposed structure consists of two offset cantilevered beams connected by a highly flexible element. For increasing forcing amplitudes, the system sequentially features linear behaviour, localised nonlinearity associated with the buckling of the connecting element, and distributed nonlinearity resulting from large elastic deformations across the structure. A finite element-based code with time integration capabilities is made available at https://sem.org/nonlinear-systems-imac-focus-group/. This code permits the numerical simulation of the benchmark dynamics in response to arbitrary excitation signals.

    1998-01-01

    We study the problem of identification for nonlinear systems in the presence of unknown driving noise, using both feedforward multilayer neural network and radial basis function network models. Our objective is to resolve the difficulty associated with the persistency of excitation condition inherent to the standard schemes in the neural identification literature. This difficulty is circumvented here by a novel formulation and by using a new class of identification algorithms recently obtained by Didinsky et al. We show how these algorithms can be exploited to successfully identify the nonlinearity in the system using neural-network models. By embedding the original problem in one with noise-perturbed state measurements, we present a class of identifiers (under L1 and L2 cost criteria) which secure a good approximant for the system nonlinearity provided that some global optimization technique is used. In this respect, many available learning algorithms in the current neural-network literature, e.g., the backpropagation scheme and the genetic algorithms-based scheme, with slight modifications, can ensure the identification of the system nonlinearity. Subsequently, we address the same problem under a third, worst case L(infinity) criterion for an RBF modeling. We present a neural-network version of an H(infinity)-based identification algorithm from Didinsky et al and show how, along with an appropriate choice of control input to enhance excitation, under both full-state-derivative information (FSDI) and noise-perturbed full-state-information (NPFSI), it leads to satisfaction of a relevant persistency of excitation condition, and thereby to robust identification of the nonlinearity. Results from several simulation studies have been included to demonstrate the effectiveness of these algorithms.

    Senthilkumar, D; Mahanta, Chitralekha

    2010-01-01

    In this paper, we consider fuzzy identification of uncertain nonlinear systems in Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) form for the purpose of robust fuzzy control design. The uncertain nonlinear system is represented using a fuzzy function having constant matrices and time varying uncertain matrices that describe the nominal model and the uncertainty in the nonlinear system respectively. The suggested method is based on linear programming approach and it comprises the identification of the nominal model and the bounds of the uncertain matrices and then expressing the uncertain matrices into uncertain norm bounded matrices accompanied by constant matrices. It has been observed that our method yields less conservative results than the other existing method proposed by Skrjanc et al. (2005). With the obtained fuzzy model, we showed the robust stability condition which provides a basis for different robust fuzzy control design. Finally, different simulation examples are presented for identification and control of uncertain nonlinear systems to illustrate the utility of our proposed identification method for robust fuzzy control.

    2008-03-01

    Variations in parameters representing natural frequency, damping and effective nonlinearities before and after damage initiation in a beam carrying a lumped mass are assessed. The identification of these parameters is performed by exploiting and modeling nonlinear behavior of the beam-mass system and matching an approximate solution of the representative model with quantities obtained from spectral analysis of measured vibrations. The representative model and identified coefficients are validated through comparison of measured and predicted responses. Percentage variations of the identified parameters before and after damage initiation are determined to establish their sensitivities to the state of damage of the beam. The results show that damping and effective nonlinearity parameters are more sensitive to damage initiation than the system's natural frequency. Moreover, the sensitivity of nonlinear parameters to damage is better established using a physically-derived parameter rather than spectral amplitudes of harmonic components.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper deals with nonlinear modeling and identification of an electrohydraulic control system for improving its tracking performance. We build the nonlinear state space model for analyzing the highly nonlinear system and then develop a Hammerstein-Wiener (H-W model which consists of a static input nonlinear block with two-segment polynomial nonlinearities, a linear time-invariant dynamic block, and a static output nonlinear block with single polynomial nonlinearity to describe it. We simplify the H-W model into a linear-in-parameters structure by using the key term separation principle and then use a modified recursive least square method with iterative estimation of internal variables to identify all the unknown parameters simultaneously. It is found that the proposed H-W model approximates the actual system better than the independent Hammerstein, Wiener, and ARX models. The prediction error of the H-W model is about 13%, 54%, and 58% less than the Hammerstein, Wiener, and ARX models, respectively.

    Rehman, M. Javvad ur; Dass, Sarat Chandra; Asirvadam, Vijanth Sagayan

    2016-11-01

    Kalman Filter is the most suitable choice for linear state space and Gaussian error distribution from decades. In general practical systems are not linear and Gaussian so these assumptions give inconsistent results. System Identification for nonlinear dynamical systems is a difficult task to perform. Usually, Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is used to deal with non-linearity in which Jacobian method is used for linearizing the system dynamics, But it has been observed that in highly non-linear environment performance of EKF is poor. Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) is proposed here as a better option because instead of analytical linearization of state space, UKF performs statistical linearization by using sigma point calculated from deterministic samples. Formation of the posterior distribution is based on the propagation of mean and covariance through sigma points.

  11. Reduced Complexity Volterra Models for Nonlinear System Identification

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hacıoğlu Rıfat

    2001-01-01

    Full Text Available A broad class of nonlinear systems and filters can be modeled by the Volterra series representation. However, its practical use in nonlinear system identification is sometimes limited due to the large number of parameters associated with the Volterra filter′s structure. The parametric complexity also complicates design procedures based upon such a model. This limitation for system identification is addressed in this paper using a Fixed Pole Expansion Technique (FPET within the Volterra model structure. The FPET approach employs orthonormal basis functions derived from fixed (real or complex pole locations to expand the Volterra kernels and reduce the number of estimated parameters. That the performance of FPET can considerably reduce the number of estimated parameters is demonstrated by a digital satellite channel example in which we use the proposed method to identify the channel dynamics. Furthermore, a gradient-descent procedure that adaptively selects the pole locations in the FPET structure is developed in the paper.

    2015-11-01

    The aim of this paper is to develop and design a State Space Neural Network toolbox for a non-linear system identification with an artificial state-space neural networks, which can be used in a model-based robust fault diagnosis and control. Such toolbox is implemented in the MATLAB environment and it uses some of its predefined functions. It is designed in the way that any non-linear multi-input multi-output system is identified and represented in the classical state-space form. The novelty of the proposed approach is that the final result of the identification process is the state, input and output matrices, not only the neural network parameters. Moreover, the toolbox is equipped with the graphical user interface, which makes it useful for the users not familiar with the neural networks theory.

    An adaptive identification method of simple dynamic recurrent neural network (SRNN) for nonlinear dynamic systems is presented in this paper. This method based on the theory that by using the inner-states feed-back of dynamic network to describe the nonlinear kinetic characteristics of system can reflect the dynamic characteristics more directly, deduces the recursive prediction error (RPE) learning algorithm of SRNN, and improves the algorithm by studying topological structure on recursion layer without the weight values. The simulation results indicate that this kind of neural network can be used in real-time control, due to its less weight values, simpler learning algorithm, higher identification speed, and higher precision of model. It solves the problems of intricate in training algorithm and slow rate in convergence caused by the complicate topological structure in usual dynamic recurrent neural network.

    Chen, Yi; Hunter, Ian W

    2013-04-01

    Volterra kernel stochastic system identification is a technique that can be used to capture and model nonlinear dynamics in biological systems, including the nonlinear properties of skin during indentation. A high bandwidth and high stroke Lorentz force linear actuator system was developed and used to test the mechanical properties of bulk skin and underlying tissue in vivo using a non-white input force and measuring an output position. These short tests (5 s) were conducted in an indentation configuration normal to the skin surface and in an extension configuration tangent to the skin surface. Volterra kernel solution methods were used including a fast least squares procedure and an orthogonalization solution method. The practical modifications, such as frequency domain filtering, necessary for working with low-pass filtered inputs are also described. A simple linear stochastic system identification technique had a variance accounted for (VAF) of less than 75%. Representations using the first and second Volterra kernels had a much higher VAF (90-97%) as well as a lower Akaike information criteria (AICc) indicating that the Volterra kernel models were more efficient. The experimental second Volterra kernel matches well with results from a dynamic-parameter nonlinearity model with fixed mass as a function of depth as well as stiffness and damping that increase with depth into the skin. A study with 16 subjects showed that the kernel peak values have mean coefficients of variation (CV) that ranged from 3 to 8% and showed that the kernel principal components were correlated with location on the body, subject mass, body mass index (BMI), and gender. These fast and robust methods for Volterra kernel stochastic system identification can be applied to the characterization of biological tissues, diagnosis of skin diseases, and determination of consumer product efficacy.

    Yang, Chunhua; Gui, Weihua

    2012-01-01

    This paper presents a novel optimization method named state transition algorithm (STA) to solve the problem of identification and control for nonlinear system. In the proposed algorithm, a solution to optimization problem is considered as a state, and the updating of a solution equates to the process of state transition, which makes the STA easy to understand and convenient to be implemented. First, the STA is applied to identify the optimal parameters of the estimated system with previously known structure. With the accurate estimated model, an off-line PID controller is then designed optimally by using the STA as well. Experimental results demonstrate the validity of the methodology, and comparison to STA with other optimization algorithms confirms that STA is a promising alternative method for system identification and control due to its stronger search ability, faster convergence speed and more stable performance.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Le, Van Luong; Bloch, Grard; Lauer, Fabien

    2011-12-01

    This brief paper focuses on the identification of nonlinear hybrid dynamical systems, i.e., systems switching between multiple nonlinear dynamical behaviors. Thus the aim is to learn an ensemble of submodels from a single set of input-output data in a regression setting with no prior knowledge on the grouping of the data points into similar behaviors. To be able to approximate arbitrary nonlinearities, kernel submodels are considered. However, in order to maintain efficiency when applying the method to large data sets, a preprocessing step is required in order to fix the submodel sizes and limit the number of optimization variables. This brief paper proposes four approaches, respectively inspired by the fixed-size least-squares support vector machines, the feature vector selection method, the kernel principal component regression and a modification of the latter, in order to deal with this issue and build sparse kernel submodels. These are compared in numerical experiments, which show that the proposed approach achieves the simultaneous classification of data points and approximation of the nonlinear behaviors in an efficient and accurate manner.

    By combining the wavelet decomposition with kernel method, a practical approach of universal multi-scale wavelet kernels constructed in reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS) is discussed, and an identifica-tion scheme using wavelet support vector machines ( WSVM ) estimator is proposed for nonlinear dynamic sys-tems. The good approximating properties of wavelet kernel function enhance the generalization ability of the pro-posed method, and the comparison of some numerical experimental results between the novel approach and some existing methods is encouraging.

  18. Bayesian Methods for Nonlinear System Identification of Civil Structures

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a new framework for the identification of mechanics-based nonlinear finite element (FE models of civil structures using Bayesian methods. In this approach, recursive Bayesian estimation methods are utilized to update an advanced nonlinear FE model of the structure using the input-output dynamic data recorded during an earthquake event. Capable of capturing the complex damage mechanisms and failure modes of the structural system, the updated nonlinear FE model can be used to evaluate the state of health of the structure after a damage-inducing event. To update the unknown time-invariant parameters of the FE model, three alternative stochastic filtering methods are used: the extended Kalman filter (EKF, the unscented Kalman filter (UKF, and the iterated extended Kalman filter (IEKF. For those estimation methods that require the computation of structural FE response sensitivities with respect to the unknown modeling parameters (EKF and IEKF, the accurate and computationally efficient direct differentiation method (DDM is used. A three-dimensional five-story two-by-one bay reinforced concrete (RC frame is used to illustrate the performance of the framework and compare the performance of the different filters in terms of convergence, accuracy, and robustness. Excellent estimation results are obtained with the UKF, EKF, and IEKF. Because of the analytical linearization used in the EKF and IEKF, abrupt and large jumps in the estimates of the modeling parameters are observed when using these filters. The UKF slightly outperforms the EKF and IEKF.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The nonlinear model is crucial to prepare, supervise, and analyze mechanical system. In this paper, a new nonparametric and output-only identification procedure for nonlinear damping is studied. By introducing the concept of the stochastic state space, we formulate a stochastic inverse problem for a nonlinear damping. The solution of the stochastic inverse problem is designed as probabilistic expression via the hierarchical Bayesian formulation by considering various uncertainties such as the information insufficiency in parameter of interests or errors in measurement. The probability space is estimated using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC. The applicability of the proposed method is demonstrated through numerical experiment and particular application to a realistic problem related to ship roll motion.

    Banks, H. T.; Reich, Simeon; Rosen, I. G.

    1990-01-01

    An abstract approximation framework for the identification of nonlinear distributed parameter systems is developed. Inverse problems for nonlinear systems governed by strongly maximal monotone operators (satisfying a mild continuous dependence condition with respect to the unknown parameters to be identified) are treated. Convergence of Galerkin approximations and the corresponding solutions of finite dimensional approximating identification problems to a solution of the original finite dimensional identification problem is demonstrated using the theory of nonlinear evolution systems and a nonlinear analog of the Trotter-Kato appproximation result for semigroups of bounded linear operators. The nonlinear theory developed here is shown to subsume an existing linear theory as a special case. It is also shown to be applicable to a broad class of nonlinear elliptic operators and the corresponding nonlinear parabolic partial differential equations to which they lead. An application of the theory to a quasilinear model for heat conduction or mass transfer is discussed.

    This paper prescnts an improved nonlinear system identification scheme using differential evolution (DE), neural network (NN) and Levenberg Marquardt algorithm (LM). With a view to achieve better convergence of NN weights optimization during the training, the DE and LM are used in a combined framework to train the NN. We present the convergence analysis of the DE and demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed improved system identification algorithm by exploiting the combined DE and LM training of the NN and suitably implementing it together with other system identification methods, namely NN and DE+NN on a numbcr of examples including a practical case study. The identification rcsults obtained through a series of simulation studies of these methods on different nonlinear systems demonstrate that the proposed DE and LM trained NN approach to nonlinear system identification can yield better identification results in terms of time of convergence and less identification error.

    Representation and identification of a nonlinear aeroelastic pitch-plunge system as a model of the Nonlinear AutoRegressive, Moving Average eXogenous (NARMAX) class is considered. A nonlinear difference equation describing this aircraft model is derived theoretically and shown to be of the NARMAX form. Identification methods for NARMAX models are applied to aeroelastic dynamics and its properties demonstrated via continuous-time simulations of experimental conditions. Simulation results show that (1) the outputs of the NARMAX model closely match those generated using continuous-time methods, and (2) NARMAX identification methods applied to aeroelastic dynamics provide accurate discrete-time parameter estimates. Application of NARMAX identification to experimental pitch-plunge dynamics data gives a high percent fit for cross-validated data.

    This paper deals with the adaptive nonlinear identification and trajectory tracking via dynamic multilayer neural network (NN) with different timescales. Two NN identifiers are proposed for nonlinear systems identification via dynamic NNs with different timescales including both fast and slow phenomenon. The first NN identifier uses the output signals from the actual system for the system identification. In the second NN identifier, all the output signals from nonlinear system are replaced with the state variables of the NNs. The online identification algorithms for both NN identifier parameters are proposed using Lyapunov function and singularly perturbed techniques. With the identified NN models, two indirect adaptive NN controllers for the nonlinear systems containing slow and fast dynamic processes are developed. For both developed adaptive NN controllers, the trajectory errors are analyzed and the stability of the systems is proved. Simulation results show that the controller based on the second identifier has better performance than that of the first identifier.

    An important step in the design of control systems is system identification. Data driven system identification finds functional models for the system's input output behavior. Regression methods are simple and effective, but may cause overshoots for complicated characteristics. Neural network approaches such as the multilayer perceptron yield very accurate models, but are black box approaches which leads to problems in system and stability analysis. In contrast to these global modeling methods crisp and fuzzy rule bases represent local models that can be extracted from data by clustering methods. Depending on the type and number of models different degrees of model accuracy can be achieved. (orig.)

    2003-03-01

    The system identification method for a variety of nonlinear dynamic models is elaborated. The problem of identification of an original nonlinear model presented as a system of ordinary differential equations in the Cauchy explicit form with a polynomial right part reduces to the solution of the system of linear equations for the constants of the dynamical model. In other words, to construct an integral model of the complex system (phenomenon), it is enough to collect some data array characterizing the time-course of dynamical parameters of the system. Collection of such a data array has always been a problem. However difficulties emerging are, as a rule, not principal and may be overcome almost without exception. The potentialities of the method under discussion are demonstrated by the example of the test problem of multiparametric nonlinear oscillator identification. The identification method proposed may be applied to the study of different biological systems and in particular the enzyme kinetics of complex biochemical reactions.

    Nonlinear system identification is a vast research field, today attracting a great deal of attention in the structural dynamics community. Ten years ago, an MSSP paper reviewing the progress achieved until then [1] concluded that the identification of simple continuous structures with localised nonlinearities was within reach. The past decade witnessed a shift in emphasis, accommodating the growing industrial need for a first generation of tools capable of addressing complex nonlinearities in larger-scale structures. The objective of the present paper is to survey the key developments which arose in the field since 2006, and to illustrate state-of-the-art techniques using a real-world satellite structure. Finally, a broader perspective to nonlinear system identification is provided by discussing the central role played by experimental models in the design cycle of engineering structures.

    2009-01-01

    This paper describes an indentometer device used to identify the linear dynamic and nonlinear properties of skin and underlying tissue using an in vivo test. The device uses a Lorentz force actuator to apply a dynamic force to the skin and measures the resulting displacement. It was found that the skin could be modeled as a Wiener system (i.e. a linear dynamic system followed by a static nonlinearity). Using a stochastic nonlinear system identification technique, the method presented in this paper was able to identify the dynamic linear and static nonlinear mechanical parameters of the indentometer-skin system within 2 to 4 seconds. The shape of the nonlinearity was found to vary depending on the area of the skin that was tested. We show that the device can repeatably distinguish between different areas of human tissue for multiple test subjects.

    2011-12-01

    The piecewise affine (PWA) model represents an attractive model structure for approximating nonlinear systems. In this paper, a procedure for obtaining the PWA autoregressive exogenous (ARX) (autoregressive systems with exogenous inputs) models of nonlinear systems is proposed. Two key parameters defining a PWARX model, namely, the parameters of locally affine subsystems and the partition of the regressor space, are estimated, the former through a least-squares-based identification method using multiple models, and the latter using standard procedures such as neural network classifier or support vector machine classifier. Having obtained the PWARX model of the nonlinear system, a controller is then derived to control the system for reference tracking. Both simulation and experimental studies show that the proposed algorithm can indeed provide accurate PWA approximation of nonlinear systems, and the designed controller provides good tracking performance.

    2016-11-01

    In this paper, we derive a system identification framework for continuous-time nonlinear systems, for the first time using a simulation-focused computational Bayesian approach. Simulation approaches to nonlinear system identification have been shown to outperform regression methods under certain conditions, such as non-persistently exciting inputs and fast-sampling. We use the approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) algorithm to perform simulation-based inference of model parameters. The framework has the following main advantages: (1) parameter distributions are intrinsically generated, giving the user a clear description of uncertainty, (2) the simulation approach avoids the difficult problem of estimating signal derivatives as is common with other continuous-time methods, and (3) as noted above, the simulation approach improves identification under conditions of non-persistently exciting inputs and fast-sampling. Term selection is performed by judging parameter significance using parameter distributions that are intrinsically generated as part of the ABC procedure. The results from a numerical example demonstrate that the method performs well in noisy scenarios, especially in comparison to competing techniques that rely on signal derivative estimation.

    Green, P. L.

    2015-02-01

    This work details the Bayesian identification of a nonlinear dynamical system using a novel MCMC algorithm: 'Data Annealing'. Data Annealing is similar to Simulated Annealing in that it allows the Markov chain to easily clear 'local traps' in the target distribution. To achieve this, training data is fed into the likelihood such that its influence over the posterior is introduced gradually - this allows the annealing procedure to be conducted with reduced computational expense. Additionally, Data Annealing uses a proposal distribution which allows it to conduct a local search accompanied by occasional long jumps, reducing the chance that it will become stuck in local traps. Here it is used to identify an experimental nonlinear system. The resulting Markov chains are used to approximate the covariance matrices of the parameters in a set of competing models before the issue of model selection is tackled using the Deviance Information Criterion.

    A new method for identifying nonlinear time-varying systems with unknown structure is presented. The method extends the application area of basis sequence identification. The essential idea is to utilize the learning and nonlinear approximating ability of neural networks to model the non-linearity of the system, characterize time-varying dynamics of the system by the time-varying parametric vector of the network, then the parametric vector of the network is approximated by a weighted sum of known basis sequences. Because of black-box modeling ability of neural networks, the presented method can identify nonlinear time-varying systems with unknown structure. In order to improve the real-time capability of the algorithm, the neural network is trained by a simple fast learning algorithm based on local least squares presented by the authors. The effectiveness and the performance of the method are demonstrated by some simulation results.

    Full Text Available One of the most effective strategies for steam generator efficiency enhancement is to improve the control system. For such an improvement, it is essential to have an accurate model for the steam generator of power plant. In this paper, an industrial steam generator is considered as a nonlinear multivariable system for identification. An important step in nonlinear system identification is the development of a nonlinear model. In recent years, artificial neural networks have been successfully used for identification of nonlinear systems in many researches. Wavelet neural networks (WNNs also are used as a powerful tool for nonlinear system identification. In this paper we present a time delay neural network model and a WNN model in order to identify an industrial steam generator. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed models in the system identification and demonstrate that the WNN model is more precise to estimate the plant outputs.

  12. Parametric system identification of resonant micro/nanosystems operating in a nonlinear response regime

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sabater, A. B.; Rhoads, J. F.

    2017-02-01

    The parametric system identification of macroscale resonators operating in a nonlinear response regime can be a challenging research problem, but at the micro- and nanoscales, experimental constraints add additional complexities. For example, due to the small and noisy signals micro/nanoresonators produce, a lock-in amplifier is commonly used to characterize the amplitude and phase responses of the systems. While the lock-in enables detection, it also prohibits the use of established time-domain, multi-harmonic, and frequency-domain methods, which rely upon time-domain measurements. As such, the only methods that can be used for parametric system identification are those based on fitting experimental data to an approximate solution, typically derived via perturbation methods and/or Galerkin methods, of a reduced-order model. Thus, one could view the parametric system identification of micro/nanosystems operating in a nonlinear response regime as the amalgamation of four coupled sub-problems: nonparametric system identification, or proper experimental design and data acquisition; the generation of physically consistent reduced-order models; the calculation of accurate approximate responses; and the application of nonlinear least-squares parameter estimation. This work is focused on the theoretical foundations that underpin each of these sub-problems, as the methods used to address one sub-problem can strongly influence the results of another. To provide context, an electromagnetically transduced microresonator is used as an example. This example provides a concrete reference for the presented findings and conclusions.

    2002-01-01

    Orthogonal Least Squares (OLS) is a general and powerful algorithm for solving the output layer weights of a wavelet network. In this paper, the Recursive Orthogonal Least Squares (ROLS) method is used to orthogonalize the wavelet regressors. With the result of ROLS method, it is possible to compute which wavelets are important, and which are redundant and can be eliminated from the wavelet network. A structure identification algorithm is carried out based on OLS for the reduction of network. Akaike 's Information Criterion (AIC) is introduced in the process of structure identification to seek a compromise between network complexity and accuracy. The final network models obtain acceptable accuracy with a relatively small number of significant wavelets. Numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the method mentioned above.

Linear recursive identification algorithms applied to this problem are known to converge, provided the regressor vector sequence has the persistency of excitation (PE) property. The main contribution of this paper is formulation and proof of PE conditions on the input variables. In the RBF network identification, the regressor vector is a nonlinear function of these input variables. According to the formulated condition, the inputs provide PE, if they belong to domains around the network node centers. For a two-input network with Gaussian RBF that have typical width and are centered on a regular mesh, these domains cover about 25% of the input domain volume. The authors further generalize the proposed solution of the standard RBF network identification problem and study affine RBF network identification that is important for affine nonlinear system control. For the affine RBF network, the author formulates and proves a PE condition on both the system state parameters and control inputs.

    Neural network (NN) approaches have been widely applied for modeling and identification of nonlinear multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. This paper proposes a stochastic analysis of a class of these NN algorithms. The class of MIMO systems considered in this paper is composed of a set of single-input nonlinearities followed by a linear combiner. The NN model consists of a set of single-input memoryless NN blocks followed by a linear combiner. A gradient descent algorithm is used for the learning process. Here we give analytical expressions for the mean squared error (MSE), explore the stationary points of the algorithm, evaluate the misadjustment error due to weight fluctuations, and derive recursions for the mean weight transient behavior during the learning process. The paper shows that in the case of independent inputs, the adaptive linear combiner identifies the linear combining matrix of the MIMO system (to within a scaling diagonal matrix) and that each NN block identifies the corresponding unknown nonlinearity to within a scale factor. The paper also investigates the particular case of linear identification of the nonlinear MIMO system. It is shown in this case that, for independent inputs, the adaptive linear combiner identifies a scaled version of the unknown linear combining matrix. The paper is supported with computer simulations which confirm the theoretical results.

    The problem of reconstructing nonlinear and complex dynamical systems from measured data or time series is central to many scientific disciplines including physical, biological, computer, and social sciences, as well as engineering and economics. The classic approach to phase-space reconstruction through the methodology of delay-coordinate embedding has been practiced for more than three decades, but the paradigm is effective mostly for low-dimensional dynamical systems. Often, the methodology yields only a topological correspondence of the original system. There are situations in various fields of science and engineering where the systems of interest are complex and high dimensional with many interacting components. A complex system typically exhibits a rich variety of collective dynamics, and it is of great interest to be able to detect, classify, understand, predict, and control the dynamics using data that are becoming increasingly accessible due to the advances of modern information technology. To accomplish these goals, especially prediction and control, an accurate reconstruction of the original system is required. Nonlinear and complex systems identification aims at inferring, from data, the mathematical equations that govern the dynamical evolution and the complex interaction patterns, or topology, among the various components of the system.

  2. Identification of Wiener systems with nonlinearity being piecewise-linear function

    2008-01-01

    Identification of the Wiener system with the nonlinear block being a piecewise-linear function is considered in the paper, generalizing the results given by H. E. Chen to the case of noisy observation. Recursive algorithms are given for estimating all unknown parameters contained in the system, and their strong consistency is proved. The estimation method is similar to that used by H. E. Chen for Hammerstein systems with the same nonlinearity. However, the assumption imposed by H. E. Chen on the availability of an upper bound for the nonsmooth points of the piecewise-linear function has been removed in this paper with the help of designing an additional algorithm for estimating the upper bound.

    In this paper a model selection algorithm for a nonlinear system identification method is proposed to study functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) effective connectivity. Unlike most other methods, this method does not need a pre-defined structure/model for effective connectivity analysis. Instead, it relies on selecting significant nonlinear or linear covariates for the differential equations to describe the mapping relationship between brain output (fMRI response) and input (experiment design). These covariates, as well as their coefficients, are estimated based on a least angle regression (LARS) method. In the implementation of the LARS method, Akaike's information criterion corrected (AICc) algorithm and the leave-one-out (LOO) cross-validation method were employed and compared for model selection. Simulation comparison between the dynamic causal model (DCM), nonlinear identification method, and model selection method for modelling the single-input-single-output (SISO) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems were conducted. Results show that the LARS model selection method is faster than DCM and achieves a compact and economic nonlinear model simultaneously. To verify the efficacy of the proposed approach, an analysis of the dorsal and ventral visual pathway networks was carried out based on three real datasets. The results show that LARS can be used for model selection in an fMRI effective connectivity study with phase-encoded, standard block, and random block designs. It is also shown that the LOO cross-validation method for nonlinear model selection has less residual sum squares than the AICc algorithm for the study.

    2016-02-03

    A giant leap has been made in the past couple of decades with the introduction of kernel-based learning as a mainstay for designing effective nonlinear computational learning algorithms. In view of the geometric interpretation of conditional expectation and the ubiquity of multiscale characteristics in highly complex nonlinear dynamic systems [1]-[3], this paper presents a new orthogonal projection operator wavelet kernel, aiming at developing an efficient computational learning approach for nonlinear dynamical system identification. In the framework of multiresolution analysis, the proposed projection operator wavelet kernel can fulfill the multiscale, multidimensional learning to estimate complex dependencies. The special advantage of the projection operator wavelet kernel developed in this paper lies in the fact that it has a closed-form expression, which greatly facilitates its application in kernel learning. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first closed-form orthogonal projection wavelet kernel reported in the literature. It provides a link between grid-based wavelets and mesh-free kernel-based methods. Simulation studies for identifying the parallel models of two benchmark nonlinear dynamical systems confirm its superiority in model accuracy and sparsity.

    In this paper, an online identification algorithm is presented for nonlinear systems in the presence of output colored noise. The proposed method is based on extended recursive least squares (ERLS) algorithm, where the identified system is in polynomial Wiener form. To this end, an unknown intermediate signal is estimated by using an inner iterative algorithm. The iterative recursive algorithm adaptively modifies the vector of parameters of the presented Wiener model when the system parameters vary. In addition, to increase the robustness of the proposed method against variations, a robust RLS algorithm is applied to the model. Simulation results are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach. Results confirm that the proposed method has fast convergence rate with robust characteristics, which increases the efficiency of the proposed model and identification approach. For instance, the FIT criterion will be achieved 92% in CSTR process where about 400 data is used.

    Wiener static nonlinear system identification was used to study the linear dynamics and static nonlinearities in the response of skin and underlying tissue under indentation in vivo. A device capable of measuring the dynamic mechanical properties of bulk skin tissue was developed and it incorporates a custom-built Lorentz force actuator that measures the dynamic compliance between the input force (system identification technique produced a variance accounted for (VAF) of 75-81% and Wiener static nonlinear techniques increased the VAF by 5%. Localized linear techniques increased the VAF to 85-95% with longer tests. Indentation experiments were conducted on 16 test subjects to determine device sensitivity and repeatability. Using the device, the coefficient of variation of test metrics was found to be as low as 2% for a single test location. The measured tissue stiffness was 300 N/m near the surface and 4.5 kN/m for high compression. The damping ranged from 5 to 23 N s/m. The bulk skin properties were also shown to vary significantly with gender and body mass index. The device and techniques used in this research can be applied to consumer product analysis, medical diagnosis and tissue research.

    2006-01-01

    Identification of parametric nonlinear models involves estimating unknown parameters and detecting its underlying structure. Structure computation is concerned with selecting a subset of parameters to give a parsimonious description of the system which may afford greater insight into the functionality of the system or a simpler controller design. In this study, a least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (LASSO) technique is investigated for computing efficient model descriptions of nonlinear systems. The LASSO minimises the residual sum of squares by the addition of a 1 penalty term on the parameter vector of the traditional 2 minimisation problem. Its use for structure detection is a natural extension of this constrained minimisation approach to pseudolinear regression problems which produces some model parameters that are exactly zero and, therefore, yields a parsimonious system description. The performance of this LASSO structure detection method was evaluated by using it to estimate the structure of a nonlinear polynomial model. Applicability of the method to more complex systems such as those encountered in aerospace applications was shown by identifying a parsimonious system description of the F/A-18 Active Aeroelastic Wing using flight test data.

    Electro-hydraulic control systems are nonlinear in nature and their mathematic models have unknown parameters. Existing research of modeling and identification of the electro-hydraulic control system is mainly based on theoretical state space model, and the parameters identification is hard due to its demand on internal states measurement. Moreover, there are also some hard-to-model nonlinearities in theoretical model, which needs to be overcome. Modeling and identification of the electro-hydraulic control system of an excavator arm based on block-oriented nonlinear(BONL) models is investigated. The nonlinear state space model of the system is built first, and field tests are carried out to reveal the nonlinear characteristics of the system. Based on the physic insight into the system, three BONL models are adopted to describe the highly nonlinear system. The Hammerstein model is composed of a two-segment polynomial nonlinearity followed by a linear dynamic subsystem. The Hammerstein-Wiener(H-W) model is represented by the Hammerstein model in cascade with another single polynomial nonlinearity. A novel Pseudo-Hammerstein-Wiener(P-H-W) model is developed by replacing the single polynomial of the H-W model by a non-smooth backlash function. The key term separation principle is applied to simplify the BONL models into linear-in-parameters structures. Then, a modified recursive least square algorithm(MRLSA) with iterative estimation of internal variables is developed to identify the all the parameters simultaneously. The identification results demonstrate that the BONL models with two-segment polynomial nonlinearities are able to capture the system behavior, and the P-H-W model has the best prediction accuracy. Comparison experiments show that the velocity prediction error of the P-H-W model is reduced by 14%, 30% and 75% to the H-W model, Hammerstein model, and extended auto-regressive (ARX) model, respectively. This research is helpful in controller design, system

  9. Identification of models for chaotic systems from noisy data: implications for performance and nonlinear filtering

    Science.gov (United States)

    Aguirre, Luis Antonio; Billings, S. A.

    This paper investigates the identification of global models from chaotic data corrupted by additive noise. It is verified that noise has a strong influence on the identification of chaotic systems. In particular, there seems to be a critical noise level beyond which the accurate estimation of polynomial models from chaotic data becomes very difficult. Similarities with the estimation of the largest Lyapunov exponent from noisy data suggest that part of the problem might be related to the limited ability of predicting the data records when these are chaotic. A nonlinear filtering scheme is suggested in order to reduce the noise in the data and thereby enable the estimation of good models. This prediction-based filtering incorporates a resetting mechanism which enables the filtering of chaotic data and which is also applicable to non-chaotic data.

    Full Text Available This paper is devoted to the blind identification problem of a special class of nonlinear systems, namely, Volterra models, using a real-coded genetic algorithm (RCGA. The model input is assumed to be a stationary Gaussian sequence or an independent identically distributed (i.i.d. process. The order of the Volterra series is assumed to be known. The fitness function is defined as the difference between the calculated cumulant values and analytical equations in which the kernels and the input variances are considered. Simulation results and a comparative study for the proposed method and some existing techniques are given. They clearly show that the RCGA identification method performs better in terms of precision, time of convergence and simplicity of programming.

    2014-05-01

    Support vector regression for approximating nonlinear dynamic systems is more delicate than the approximation of indicator functions in support vector classification, particularly for systems that involve multitudes of time scales in their sampled data. The kernel used for support vector learning determines the class of functions from which a support vector machine can draw its solution, and the choice of kernel significantly influences the performance of a support vector machine. In this paper, to bridge the gap between wavelet multiresolution analysis and kernel learning, the closed-form orthogonal wavelet is exploited to construct new multiscale asymmetric orthogonal wavelet kernels for linear programming support vector learning. The closed-form multiscale orthogonal wavelet kernel provides a systematic framework to implement multiscale kernel learning via dyadic dilations and also enables us to represent complex nonlinear dynamics effectively. To demonstrate the superiority of the proposed multiscale wavelet kernel in identifying complex nonlinear dynamic systems, two case studies are presented that aim at building parallel models on benchmark datasets. The development of parallel models that address the long-term/mid-term prediction issue is more intricate and challenging than the identification of series-parallel models where only one-step ahead prediction is required. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed multiscale kernel learning.

  12. An equivalent unbalance identification method for the balancing of nonlinear squeeze-film damped rotordynamic systems

    2016-01-01

    The high pressure (HP) rotor in an aero-engine assembly cannot be accessed under operational conditions because of the restricted space for instrumentation and high temperatures. This motivates the development of a non-invasive inverse problem approach for unbalance identification and balancing, requiring prior knowledge of the structure. Most such methods in the literature necessitate linear bearing models, making them unsuitable for aero-engine applications which use nonlinear squeeze-film damper (SFD) bearings. A previously proposed inverse method for nonlinear rotating systems was highly limited in its application (e.g. assumed circular centered SFD orbits). The methodology proposed in this paper overcomes such limitations. It uses the Receptance Harmonic Balance Method (RHBM) to generate the backward operator using measurements of the vibration at the engine casing, provided there is at least one linear connection between rotor and casing, apart from the nonlinear connections. A least-squares solution yields the equivalent unbalance distribution in prescribed planes of the rotor, which is consequently used to balance it. The method is validated on distinct rotordynamic systems using simulated casing vibration readings. The method is shown to provide effective balancing under hitherto unconsidered practical conditions. The repeatability of the method, as well as its robustness to noise, model uncertainty and balancing errors, are satisfactorily demonstrated and the limitations of the process discussed.

The graphs of the Ct-Kt are analyzed and the dynamic behavior of M.C.K. systems in a Ct-Kt coordinate plane is discussed. This method calculates two adjacent sampling data, the displacement, velocity, and acceleration (which are obtained from the responses of a pulse response experiment and then distinguishes Ct and Kt of an instantaneous system. Finally, this method is used to identify the aerostatic bearing dynamic parameters, C and K.

    The vibration of a flexible cantilever tube with nonlinear constraints when it is subjected to flow internally with fluids is examined by experimental and theoretical analysis. These kinds of studies have been performed to find the existence of chaotic motion. In this paper, the important parameters of the system leading to such a chaotic motion such as Young's modulus and the coefficient of viscoelastic damping are discussed. The parameters are investigated by means of system identification so that comparisons are made between numerical analysis using the design parameters and the experimental results. The chaotic region led by several period-doubling bifurcations beyond the Hopf bifurcation is also re-established with phase portraits, bifurcation diagram and Lyapunov exponent so that one can define optimal parameters for system design.

    Leandro L. S. Linhares

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Recent researches have demonstrated that the Fuzzy Wavelet Neural Networks (FWNNs are an efficient tool to identify nonlinear systems. In these structures, features related to fuzzy logic, wavelet functions, and neural networks are combined in an architecture similar to the Adaptive Neurofuzzy Inference Systems (ANFIS. In practical applications, the experimental data set used in the identification task often contains unknown noise and outliers, which decrease the FWNN model reliability. In order to reduce the negative effects of these erroneous measurements, this work proposes the direct use of a similarity measure based on information theory in the FWNN learning procedure. The Mean Squared Error (MSE cost function is replaced by the Maximum Correntropy Criterion (MCC in the traditional error backpropagation (BP algorithm. The input-output maps of a real nonlinear system studied in this work are identified from an experimental data set corrupted by different outliers rates and additive white Gaussian noise. The results demonstrate the advantages of the proposed cost function using the MCC as compared to the MSE. This work also investigates the influence of the kernel size on the performance of the MCC in the BP algorithm, since it is the only free parameter of correntropy.

    Full Text Available This paper is focused on an assessment of the state of the art of operational modal analysis (OMA methodologies in estimating modal parameters from output responses of nonlinear structures. By means of the Volterra series, the nonlinear structure excited by random excitation is modeled as best linear approximation plus a term representing nonlinear distortions. As the nonlinear distortions are of stochastic nature and thus indistinguishable from the measurement noise, a protocol based on the use of the random phase multisine is proposed to reveal the accuracy and robustness of the linear OMA technique in the presence of the system nonlinearity. Several frequency- and time-domain based OMA techniques are examined for the modal identification of simulated and real nonlinear mechanical systems. Theoretical analyses are also provided to understand how the system nonlinearity degrades the performance of the OMA algorithms.

    This paper presents an efficient approach to identify different stable and practically useful Hammerstein models as well as unstable nonlinear process along with its stable closed loop counterpart with the help of an evolutionary algorithm as Colliding Bodies Optimization (CBO) optimization algorithm. The performance measures of the CBO based optimization approach such as precision, accuracy are justified with the minimum output mean square value (MSE) which signifies that the amount of bias and variance in the output domain are also the least. It is also observed that the optimization of output MSE in the presence of outliers has resulted in a very close estimation of the output parameters consistently, which also justifies the effective general applicability of the CBO algorithm towards the system identification problem and also establishes the practical usefulness of the applied approach. Optimum values of the MSEs, computational times and statistical information of the MSEs are all found to be the superior as compared with those of the other existing similar types of stochastic algorithms based approaches reported in different recent literature, which establish the robustness and efficiency of the applied CBO based identification scheme.

    Nonlinear type system identification models coupled with white noise stimulation provide an experimentally convenient and quick way to investigate the often complex and nonlinear interactions between the mechanical and neural elements of reflex limb control systems. Previous steady state analysis has allowed the neurons in such systems to be categorised by their sensitivity to position, velocity or acceleration (dynamics) and has improved our understanding of network function. These neurons, however, are known to adapt their output amplitude or spike firing rate during repetitive stimulation and this transient response may be more important than the steady state response for reflex control. In the current study previously used system identification methods are developed and applied to investigate both steady state and transient dynamic and nonlinear changes in the neural circuit responsible for controlling reflex movements of the locust hind limbs. Through the use of a parsimonious model structure and Monte Carlo simulations we conclude that key system dynamics remain relatively unchanged during repetitive stimulation while output amplitude adaptation is occurring. Whilst some evidence of a significant change was found in parts of the systems nonlinear response, the effect was small and probably of little physiological relevance. Analysis using biologically more realistic stimulation reinforces this conclusion.

  4. Identification of Dual-Rate Sampled Hammerstein Systems with a Piecewise-Linear Nonlinearity Using the Key Variable Separation Technique

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ying-Ying Wang

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available The identification difficulties for a dual-rate Hammerstein system lie in two aspects. First, the identification model of the system contains the products of the parameters of the nonlinear block and the linear block, and a standard least squares method cannot be directly applied to the model; second, the traditional single-rate discrete-time Hammerstein model cannot be used as the identification model for the dual-rate sampled system. In order to solve these problems, by combining the polynomial transformation technique with the key variable separation technique, this paper converts the Hammerstein system into a dual-rate linear regression model about all parameters (linear-in-parameter model and proposes a recursive least squares algorithm to estimate the parameters of the dual-rate system. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

    This paper proposes a novel approach for training of proposed recurrent hierarchical interval type-2 fuzzy neural networks (RHT2FNN) based on the square-root cubature Kalman filters (SCKF). The SCKF algorithm is used to adjust the premise part of the type-2 FNN and the weights of defuzzification and the feedback weights. The recurrence property in the proposed network is the output feeding of each membership function to itself. The proposed RHT2FNN is employed in the sliding mode control scheme for the synchronization of chaotic systems. Unknown functions in the sliding mode control approach are estimated by RHT2FNN. Another application of the proposed RHT2FNN is the identification of dynamic nonlinear systems. The effectiveness of the proposed network and its learning algorithm is verified by several simulation examples. Furthermore, the universal approximation of RHT2FNNs is also shown.

    The identification of nonlinear spatiotemporal dynamical systems given by partial differential equations has attracted a lot of attention in the past decades. Several methods, such as searching principle-based algorithms, partially linear kernel methods, and coupled lattice methods, have been developed to address the identification problems. However, most existing methods have some restrictions on sampling processes in that the sampling intervals should usually be very small and uniformly distributed in spatiotemporal domains. These are actually not applicable for some practical applications. In this paper, to tackle this issue, a novel kernel-based learning algorithm named integral least square regularization regression (ILSRR) is proposed, which can be used to effectively achieve accurate derivative estimation for nonlinear functions in the time domain. With this technique, a discretization method named inverse meshless collocation is then developed to realize the dimensional reduction of the system to be identified. Thereafter, with this novel inverse meshless collocation model, the ILSRR, and a multiple-kernel-based learning algorithm, a multistep identification method is systematically proposed to address the identification problem of spatiotemporal systems with pointwise nonuniform observations. Numerical studies for benchmark systems with necessary discussions are presented to illustrate the effectiveness and the advantages of the proposed method.

    This paper presents an efficient method for identification of nonlinear Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) systems in the presence of colored noises. The method studies the multivariable nonlinear Hammerstein and Wiener models, in which, the nonlinear memory-less block is approximated based on arbitrary vector-based basis functions. The linear time-invariant (LTI) block is modeled by an autoregressive moving average with exogenous (ARMAX) model which can effectively describe the moving average noises as well as the autoregressive and the exogenous dynamics. According to the multivariable nature of the system, a pseudo-linear-in-the-parameter model is obtained which includes two different kinds of unknown parameters, a vector and a matrix. Therefore, the standard least squares algorithm cannot be applied directly. To overcome this problem, a Hierarchical Least Squares Iterative (HLSI) algorithm is used to simultaneously estimate the vector and the matrix of unknown parameters as well as the noises. The efficiency of the proposed identification approaches are investigated through three nonlinear MIMO case studies.

    Objective Nonlinear system identification approaches were used to develop a dynamical model of the network level response to patterns of microstimulation in-vivo. Approach The thalamocortical circuit of the rodent vibrissa pathway was the model system, with voltage sensitive dye imaging capturing the cortical response to patterns of stimulation delivered from a single electrode in the ventral posteromedial thalamus. The results of simple paired stimulus experiments formed the basis for the development of a phenomenological model explicitly containing nonlinear elements observed experimentally. The phenomenological model was fit using datasets obtained with impulse train inputs, Poisson-distributed in time and uniformly varying in amplitude. Main Results The phenomenological model explained 58% of the variance in the cortical response to out of sample patterns of thalamic microstimulation. Furthermore, while fit on trial averaged data, the phenomenological model reproduced single trial response properties when simulated with noise added into the system during stimulus presentation. The simulations indicate that the single trial response properties were dependent on the relative sensitivity of the static nonlinearities in the two stages of the model, and ultimately suggest that electrical stimulation activates local circuitry through linear recruitment, but that this activity propagates in a highly nonlinear fashion to downstream targets. Significance The development of nonlinear dynamical models of neural circuitry will guide information delivery for sensory prosthesis applications, and more generally reveal properties of population coding within neural circuits.

    A triaxial force-sensitive microrobot was developed to dynamically perturb skin in multiple deformation modes, in vivo. Wiener static nonlinear identification was used to extract the linear dynamics and static nonlinearity of the force-displacement behavior of skin. Stochastic input forces were applied to the volar forearm and thenar eminence of the hand, producing probe tip perturbations in indentation and tangential extension. Wiener static nonlinear approaches reproduced the resulting displacements with variances accounted for (VAF) ranging 94-97%, indicating a good fit to the data. These approaches provided VAF improvements of 0.1-3.4% over linear models. Thenar eminence stiffness measures were approximately twice those measured on the forearm. Damping was shown to be significantly higher on the palm, whereas the perturbed mass typically was lower. Coefficients of variation (CVs) for nonlinear parameters were assessed within and across individuals. Individual CVs ranged from 2% to 11% for indentation and from 2% to 19% for extension. Stochastic perturbations with incrementally increasing mean amplitudes were applied to the same test areas. Differences between full-scale and incremental reduced-scale perturbations were investigated. Different incremental preloading schemes were investigated. However, no significant difference in parameters was found between different incremental preloading schemes. Incremental schemes provided depth-dependent estimates of stiffness and damping, ranging from 300 N/m and 2 Ns/m, respectively, at the surface to 5 kN/m and 50 Ns/m at greater depths. The device and techniques used in this research have potential applications in areas, such as evaluating skincare products, assessing skin hydration, or analyzing wound healing.

    He, Fei; Wei, Hua-Liang; Billings, Stephen A.

    2015-08-01

    This paper introduces a new approach for nonlinear and non-stationary (time-varying) system identification based on time-varying nonlinear autoregressive moving average with exogenous variable (TV-NARMAX) models. The challenging model structure selection and parameter tracking problems are solved by combining a multiwavelet basis function expansion of the time-varying parameters with an orthogonal least squares algorithm. Numerical examples demonstrate that the proposed approach can track rapid time-varying effects in nonlinear systems more accurately than the standard recursive algorithms. Based on the identified time domain model, a new frequency domain analysis approach is introduced based on a time-varying generalised frequency response function (TV-GFRF) concept, which enables the analysis of nonlinear, non-stationary systems in the frequency domain. Features in the TV-GFRFs which depend on the TV-NARMAX model structure and time-varying parameters are investigated. It is shown that the high-dimensional frequency features can be visualised in a low-dimensional time-frequency space.

    Full Text Available The present study investigates the prediction efficiency of nonlinear system-identification models, in assessing the behavior of a coupled structure-passive vibration controller. Two system-identification models, including Nonlinear AutoRegresive with eXogenous inputs (NARX and adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS, are used to model the behavior of an experimentally scaled three-story building incorporated with a tuned mass damper (TMD subjected to seismic loads. The experimental study is performed to generate the input and output data sets for training and testing the designed models. The parameters of root-mean-squared error, mean absolute error and determination coefficient statistics are used to compare the performance of the aforementioned models. A TMD controller system works efficiently to mitigate the structural vibration. The results revealed that the NARX and ANFIS models could be used to identify the response of a controlled structure. The parameters of both two time-delays of the structure response and the seismic load were proven to be effective tools in identifying the performance of the models. A comparison based on the parametric evaluation of the two methods showed that the NARX model outperforms the ANFIS model in identifying structures response.

    An accurate state of charge (SoC) estimation of a traction battery in hybrid electric non-road vehicles, which possess higher dynamics and power densities than on-road vehicles, requires a precise battery cell terminal voltage model. This paper presents a novel methodology for non-linear system identification of battery cells to obtain precise battery models. The methodology comprises the architecture of local model networks (LMN) and optimal model based design of experiments (DoE). Three main novelties are proposed: 1) Optimal model based DoE, which aims to high dynamically excite the battery cells at load ranges frequently used in operation. 2) The integration of corresponding inputs in the LMN to regard the non-linearities SoC, relaxation, hysteresis as well as temperature effects. 3) Enhancements to the local linear model tree (LOLIMOT) construction algorithm, to achieve a physical appropriate interpretation of the LMN. The framework is applicable for different battery cell chemistries and different temperatures, and is real time capable, which is shown on an industrial PC. The accuracy of the obtained non-linear battery model is demonstrated on cells with different chemistries and temperatures. The results show significant improvement due to optimal experiment design and integration of the battery non-linearities within the LMN structure.

    2012-07-01

    In this paper, a multiple model approach is proposed for the identification of synchronous generators. In the literature, the same structure often is used for all local models. Therefore, to obtain a precise model for the operating condition of the synchronous generator with severely nonlinear behavior, many local models are required. The proposed method determines the complexity of local models based on complexity of behavior of the synchronous generator at different operating conditions. There are two choices for increasing model precision at each iteration of the proposed method: (i) increasing the number of local models in one region, or (ii) increasing local model complexity in the same region. The proposed method has been tested on experimental data collected on a 3 kVA micro-machine. In the study, the field voltage is considered as the input and the active output power and the terminal voltage are considered as the outputs of the synchronous generator. The proposed method provides a more precise model with fewer parameters compared to some well known methods such as LOLIMOT and global polynomial models.

    Nonlinear hysteretic behaviors and stiffness changes of a seismic isolator are identified by using a Time Domain System Identification (TDSI) based on the secant stiffness model. A new regularity condition of tangent stiffness used in the current TDSI is proposed instead of that used in the conventional Duhem hysteretic operator. The proposed regularity condition is defined with respect to time while that of Duhem hysteretic operator is defined with respect to displacements and restoring forces. The secant stiffness model for the TDSI is obtained by approximating the tangent stiffness under the proposed regularity condition by the secant stiffness at each time step. A least square method is employed to minimize the difference between the calculated response and measured response for the time domain system identification of the secant stiffness. The regularity condition of the secant stiffness is utilized to alleviate ill-posedness of the TDSI and to yield physically meaningful solutions by means of the regularization technique. An optimal regularization factor determined by Geometric Mean Scheme (GMS) is adopted to yield appropriate regularization effects on the system identification. The validity of the proposed method is presented through two numerical examples.

    Back-propagation with gradient method is the most popular learning algorithm for feed-forward neural networks. However, it is critical to determine a proper fixed learning rate for the algorithm. In this paper, an optimized recursive algorithm is presented for online learning based on matrix operation and optimization methods analytically, which can avoid the trouble to select a proper learning rate for the gradient method. The proof of weak convergence of the proposed algorithm also is given. Although this approach is proposed for three-layer, feed-forward neural networks, it could be extended to multiple layer feed-forward neural networks. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithms applied to the identification of behavior of a two-input and two-output non-linear dynamic system is demonstrated by simulation experiments.

    Smith, Clifford B.; Wereley, Norman M.

    1999-06-01

    To study new damping augmentation methods for helicopter rotor systems, accurate and reliable nonlinear damping identification techniques are needed. For example, current studies on applications of magnetorheological (MR) dampers for rotor stability augmentation suggest that a strong Coulomb damping characteristic will be manifested as the field applied to the MR fluid is maximized. Therefore, in this work, a single degree of freedom (SDOF) system having either nonlinear Coulomb or quadratic damping is considered. This paper evaluates three analyses for identifying damping from transient test data; an FFT-based moving block analysis, an analysis based on a periodic Fourier series decomposition, and a Hilbert transform based technique. Analytical studies are used to determine the effects of block length, noise, and error in identified modal frequency on the accuracy of the identified damping level. The FFT-based moving block has unacceptable performance for systems with nonlinear damping. These problems were remedied in the Fourier series based analysis and acceptable performance is obtained for nonlinear damping identification from both this technique and the Hilbert transform based method. To more closely simulate a helicopter rotor system test, these techniques were then applied to a signal composed of two closely spaced modes. This data was developed to simulate a response containing the first lag and 1/rev modes. The primary mode of interest (simulated lag mode) had either Coulomb or quadratic damping, and the close mode (1/rev) was either undamped or had a specified viscous damping level. A comprehensive evaluation of the effects of close mode amplitude, frequency, and damping level was performed. A classifier was also developed to identify the dominant damping mechanism in a signal of 'unknown' composition. This classifier is based on the LMS error of a fit of the analytical envelope expression to the experimentally identified envelope signal. In most

As new materials are being used andstructures become slender and lighter, nonlinear behaviour of structures becomes more important. There have been many studies into the development and application of system identification methods for structural nonlinearity based on changes in natural frequencies, mode shapes and damping ratios. A great challenge is to identify nonlinearity in large structural systems. Much work has been undertaken in the development of nonlinear system identification methods (e.g. Hilbert Transform, NARMAX, and Proper Orthogonal Decomposition, however, it is arguable that most of these methods are cumbersome when applied to realistic large structures that contain mostly linear modes with some local nonlinearity (e.g. aircraft engine pylon attachment to a wing. In this paper, a multi-shaker force appropriation method is developed to determine the underlying linear and nonlinear structural properties through the use of the measurement and generation of restoring force surfaces. One undamped mode is excited in each multi-shaker test. Essentially, this technique is a derivative of the restoring surface method and involves a non-linear curve fitting performed in modal space. A reduced finite element model is established and its effectiveness in revealing the nonlinear characteristics of the system is discussed. The method is demonstrated through both numerical simulations and experiments on a simple jointed laboratory structure with seeded faults, which represents an engine pylon structure that consists of a rectangular wing with two stores suspended underneath.

    Neurofuzzy models are attractive to system identification to combine learning and structural features of neural network and the exposition based in rules associated to fuzzy systems. Genetic programming is a genetic algorithm extension where individuals are computer programs. It was proposed a modeling scheme where it's created, through genetic programming, a population of neurofuzzy systems capable to identify a given non-linear system. The data obtained when applying the resulting system to the identification of a simple non-linear function allows to conclude the technique has a quite promising application potential, and that are necessary improvements so that solutions can be obtained with a smaller number of generations and consequently in a smaller space of time.

    This paper presents a new multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) fuzzy model for nonlinear system identification (SI) of smart structures under a variety of random forces. The fuzzy SI model is developed through the integration of wavelet transform (WT), multiple MIMO linear autoregressive exogenous (ARX) input models, Takagi-Sugeno (TS) fuzzy model, weighted linear least squares, and data clustering algorithms: MIMO WARX-TS fuzzy model. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the MIMO WARX-TS fuzzy model, a three-story building equipped with a magnetorheological (MR) damper under a variety of random signals is investigated. To train the proposed model, an artificial earthquake and control forces are used as input signals while displacement and acceleration responses are used as outputs. To validate the trained model, four real recorded earthquake signals are used. It is shown from the simulation that the proposed MIMO WARX-TS fuzzy identification algorithm is effective in estimating nonlinear behavior of a building-MR damper system under a variety of seismic excitations.

    Applications of non-invasive neuroelectronic interfacing in the fields of whole-cell biosensing, biological computation and neural prosthetic devices depend critically on an efficient decoding and processing of information retrieved from a neuron-electrode junction. This necessitates development of mathematical models of the neuron-electrode interface that realistically represent the extracellular signals recorded at the neuroelectronic junction without being computationally expensive. Extracellular signals recorded using planar microelectrode or field effect transistor arrays have, until now, primarily been represented using linear equivalent circuit models that fail to reproduce the correct amplitude and shape of the signals recorded at the neuron-microelectrode interface. In this paper, to explore viable alternatives for a computationally inexpensive and efficient modeling of the neuron-electrode junction, input-output data from the neuron-electrode junction is modeled using a parametric Wiener model and a Nonlinear Auto-Regressive network with eXogenous input trained using a dynamic Neural Network model (NARX-NN model). Results corresponding to a validation dataset from these models are then employed to compare and contrast the computational complexity and efficiency of the aforementioned modeling techniques with the Lee-Schetzen technique of cross-correlation for estimating a nonlinear dynamic model of the neuroelectronic junction.

    We introduce a grammar-based hybrid approach to reverse engineering nonlinear ordinary differential equation models from observed time series. This hybrid approach combines a genetic algorithm to search the space of model architectures with a Kalman filter to estimate the model parameters. Domain-specific knowledge is used in a context-free grammar to restrict the search space for the functional form of the target model. We find that the hybrid approach outperforms a pure evolutionary algorithm method, and we observe features in the evolution of the dynamical models that correspond with the emergence of favorable model components. We apply the hybrid method to both artificially generated time series and experimentally observed protein levels from subjects who received the smallpox vaccine. From the observed data, we infer a cytokine protein interaction network for an individual’s response to the smallpox vaccine.

    In system identification, one usually cares most about finding a model whose outputs are as close as possible to the true system outputs when the same input is applied to both. However, most system identification algorithms do not minimize this output error. Often they minimize model equation error instead, as in typical least-squares fits using a finite-difference model, and it is seen here that this distinction is significant. Here, we develop a set of system identification algorithms that minimize output error for multi-input/multi-output and multi-input/single-output systems. This is done with sequential quadratic programming iterations on the nonlinear least-squares problems, with an eigendecomposition to handle indefinite second partials. This optimization minimizes a nonlinear function of many variables, and hence can converge to local minima. To handle this problem, we start the iterations from the OKID (Observer/Kalman Identification) algorithm result. Not only has OKID proved very effective in practice, it minimizes an output error of an observer which has the property that as the data set gets large, it converges to minimizing the criterion of interest here. Hence, it is a particularly good starting point for the nonlinear iterations here. Examples show that the methods developed here eliminate the bias that is often observed using any system identification methods of either over-estimating or under-estimating the damping of vibration modes in lightly damped structures.

    The operating temperature of a proton exchange membrane fuel cell stack is a very important control parameter. It should be controlled within a specific range, however, most of existing PEMFC mathematical models are too complicated to be effectively applied to on-line control. In this paper, input-output data and operating experiences will be used to establish PEMFC stack model and operating temperature control system. An adaptive learning algorithm and a nearest-neighbor clustering algorithm are applied to regulate the parameters and fuzzy rules so that the model and the control system are able to obtain higher accuracy. In the end, the simulation and the experimental results are presented and compared with traditional PID and fuzzy control algorithms.

    2002-01-01

    Many achievements in medicine have come from applying linear theory to problems. Most current methods of data analysis use linear models, which are based on proportionality between two variables and/or relationships described by linear differential equations. However, nonlinear behavior commonly occurs within human systems due to their complex dynamic nature; this cannot be described adequately by linear models. Nonlinear thinking has grown among physiologists and physicians over the past century, and non-linear system theories are beginning to be applied to assist in interpreting, explaining, and predicting biological phenomena. Chaos theory describes elements manifesting behavior that is extremely sensitive to initial conditions, does not repeat itself and yet is deterministic. Complexity theory goes one step beyond chaos and is attempting to explain complex behavior that emerges within dynamic nonlinear systems. Nonlinear modeling still has not been able to explain all of the complexity present in human systems, and further models still need to be refined and developed. However, nonlinear modeling is helping to explain some system behaviors that linear systems cannot and thus will augment our understanding of the nature of complex dynamic systems within the human body in health and in disease states.

    Identification of several classes of stochastic nonlinear systems, I.e., the Wiener system, the Hammerstein system and the nonlinear ARX system, is considered. First, existing recursive and nonrecursive algorithms for identifying these systems are briefly summarized. Then, a unified framework to recursively identify these systems is introduced. Based on the Markov chains and mixing properties connected with these systems, the identification is transformed into root searching problems. Finally, identification algorithms based on stochastic approximation with expanding truncations are introduced and strong consistency of estimates is established. The theoretical results are verified by simulation examples.%考察实际中常见的三类典型随机非线性系统(即Wiener、Hammerstein和NARX系统)的辨识,首先概述了现有的递推和非递推辨识算法,然后介绍这三类系统的一个统一辨识框架:利用系统所确定的过程的马氏性及混合型,将辨识转化为求函数零点的问题,基于扩张截尾的随机逼近算法,得到了递推、强一致的辨识结果,并给出了数值模拟验证辨识算法收敛到真值.

  2. Nonlinear system identification for prostate cancer and optimality of intermittent androgen suppression therapy.

    Suzuki, Taiji; Aihara, Kazuyuki

    2013-09-01

    These days prostate cancer is one of the most common types of malignant neoplasm in men. Androgen ablation therapy (hormone therapy) has been shown to be effective for advanced prostate cancer. However, continuous hormone therapy often causes recurrence. This results from the progression of androgen-dependent cancer cells to androgen-independent cancer cells during the continuous hormone therapy. One possible method to prevent the progression to the androgen-independent state is intermittent androgen suppression (IAS) therapy, which ceases dosing intermittently. In this paper, we propose two methods to estimate the dynamics of prostate cancer, and investigate the IAS therapy from the viewpoint of optimality. The two methods that we propose for dynamics estimation are a variational Bayesian method for a piecewise affine (PWA) system and a Gaussian process regression method. We apply the proposed methods to real clinical data and compare their predictive performances. Then, using the estimated dynamics of prostate cancer, we observe how prostate cancer behaves for various dosing schedules. It can be seen that the conventional IAS therapy is a way of imposing high cost for dosing while keeping the prostate cancer in a safe state. We would like to dedicate this paper to the memory of Professor Luigi M. Ricciardi.

    Brunton, Steven; Proctor, Joshua; Kutz, Nathan

    2016-11-01

    This work develops a general new framework to discover the governing equations underlying a dynamical system simply from data measurements, leveraging advances in sparsity techniques and machine learning. The so-called sparse identification of nonlinear dynamics (SINDy) method results in models that are parsimonious, balancing model complexity with descriptive ability while avoiding over fitting. The only assumption about the structure of the model is that there are only a few important terms that govern the dynamics, so that the equations are sparse in the space of possible functions; this assumption holds for many physical systems in an appropriate basis. We demonstrate the algorithm on a wide range of problems, from simple canonical systems, including the chaotic Lorenz system, to the canonical fluid vortex shedding behind an circular cylinder at Re=100. We also show that this method generalizes to parameterized systems and systems that are time-varying or have external forcing. With abundant data and elusive laws, data-driven discovery of dynamics will continue to play an increasingly important role in the characterization and control of fluid dynamics.

    2016-08-01

    The identification of nonlinear time-varying systems using linear-in-the-parameter models is investigated. An efficient common model structure selection (CMSS) algorithm is proposed to select a common model structure, with application to EEG data modelling. The time-varying parameters for the identified common-structured model are then estimated using a sliding-window recursive least squares (SWRLS) approach. The new method can effectively detect and adaptively track and rapidly capture the transient variation of nonstationary signals, and can also produce robust models with better generalisation properties. Two examples are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and applicability of the new approach including an application to EEG data.

    Idan, M.

    1993-01-01

    A parameter identification algorithm for nonlinear systems is presented. It is based on smoothing test data with successively improved sets of model parameters. The smoothing, which is iterative, provides all of the information needed to compute the gradients of the smoothing performance measure with respect to the parameters. The parameters are updated using a quasi-Newton procedure, until convergence is achieved. The advantage of this algorithm over standard maximum likelihood identification algorithms is the computational savings in calculating the gradient. This algorithm was used for flight-test data consistency checks based on a nonlinear model of aircraft kinematics. Measurement biases and scale factors were identified. The advantages of the presented algorithm and model are discussed.

    This paper develops a modelling method and a models identification technique for the nonlinear dynamic audio systems. Identification is performed by means of a behavioral approach based on a polynomial approximation. This approach makes use of Discrete Fourier Transform and Harmonic Balance Method. A model of an audio system is first created and identified and then it is simulated in real time using an algorithm of low computational complexity. The algorithm consists in real time emulation of the system response rather than in simulation of the system itself. The proposed software is written in Python language using object oriented programming techniques. The code is optimized for a multithreads environment.

  3. Guidance of Nonlinear Systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Meyer, George

    1997-01-01

    The paper describes a method for guiding a dynamic system through a given set of points. The paradigm is a fully automatic aircraft subject to air traffic control (ATC). The ATC provides a sequence of way points through which the aircraft trajectory must pass. The way points typically specify time, position, and velocity. The guidance problem is to synthesize a system state trajectory which satisfies both the ATC and aircraft constraints. Complications arise because the controlled process is multi-dimensional, multi-axis, nonlinear, highly coupled, and the state space is not flat. In addition, there is a multitude of possible operating modes, which may number in the hundreds. Each such mode defines a distinct state space model of the process by specifying the state space coordinatization, the partition of the controls into active controls and configuration controls, and the output map. Furthermore, mode transitions must be smooth. The guidance algorithm is based on the inversion of the pure feedback approximations, which is followed by iterative corrections for the effects of zero dynamics. The paper describes the structure and modules of the algorithm, and the performance is illustrated by several example aircraft maneuvers.

  6. Localization and identification of structural nonlinearities using cascaded optimization and neural networks

    Science.gov (United States)

    Koyuncu, A.; Cigeroglu, E.; Özgüven, H. N.

    2017-10-01

    In this study, a new approach is proposed for identification of structural nonlinearities by employing cascaded optimization and neural networks. Linear finite element model of the system and frequency response functions measured at arbitrary locations of the system are used in this approach. Using the finite element model, a training data set is created, which appropriately spans the possible nonlinear configurations space of the system. A classification neural network trained on these data sets then localizes and determines the types of all nonlinearities associated with the nonlinear degrees of freedom in the system. A new training data set spanning the parametric space associated with the determined nonlinearities is created to facilitate parametric identification. Utilizing this data set, initially, a feed forward regression neural network is trained, which parametrically identifies the classified nonlinearities. Then, the results obtained are further improved by carrying out an optimization which uses network identified values as starting points. Unlike identification methods available in literature, the proposed approach does not require data collection from the degrees of freedoms where nonlinear elements are attached, and furthermore, it is sufficiently accurate even in the presence of measurement noise. The application of the proposed approach is demonstrated on an example system with nonlinear elements and on a real life experimental setup with a local nonlinearity.

  7. Higher-order spectra for identification of nonlinear modal coupling

    Hickey, Daryl; Worden, Keith; Platten, Michael F.; Wright, Jan R.; Cooper, Jonathan E.

    2009-05-01

    Over the past four decades considerable work has been done in the area of power spectrum estimation. The information contained within the power spectrum relates to a signal's autocorrelation or 'second-order statistics'. The power spectrum provides a complete statistical description of a Gaussian process; however, a problem with this information is that it is phase blind. This problem is addressed if one turns to a system's frequency response function (FRF). The FRF graphs the magnitude and phase of the frequency response of a system; in order to do this it requires information regarding the frequency content of the input and output signals. Situations arise in science and engineering whereby signal analysts are required to look beyond second-order statistics and analyse a signal's higher-order statistics (HOS). HOS or spectra give information on a signal's deviation from Gaussianity and consequently are a good indicator function for the presence of nonlinearity within a system. One of the main problems in nonlinear system identification is that of high modal density. Many modelling schemes involve making some expansion of the nonlinear restoring force in terms of polynomial or other basis terms. If more than one degree-of-freedom is involved this becomes a multivariate problem and the number of candidate terms in the expansion grows explosively with the order of nonlinearity and the number of degrees-of-freedom. This paper attempts to use HOS to detect and qualify nonlinear behaviour for a number of symmetrical and asymmetrical systems over a range of degrees-of-freedom. In doing so the paper also attempts to show that HOS are a more sensitive tool than the FRF in detecting nonlinearity. Furthermore, the object of this paper is to try and identify which modes couple in a nonlinear manner in order to reduce the number of candidate coupling terms, for a model, as much as possible. The bispectrum method has previously been applied to simple low-DOF systems with high

    Science.gov (United States)

    Teslic, Luka; Hartmann, Benjamin; Nelles, Oliver; Skrjanc, Igor

    2011-12-01

    This paper deals with the problem of fuzzy nonlinear model identification in the framework of a local model network (LMN). A new iterative identification approach is proposed, where supervised and unsupervised learning are combined to optimize the structure of the LMN. For the purpose of fitting the cluster-centers to the process nonlinearity, the Gustafsson-Kessel (GK) fuzzy clustering, i.e., unsupervised learning, is applied. In combination with the LMN learning procedure, a new incremental method to define the number and the initial locations of the cluster centers for the GK clustering algorithm is proposed. Each data cluster corresponds to a local region of the process and is modeled with a local linear model. Since the validity functions are calculated from the fuzzy covariance matrices of the clusters, they are highly adaptable and thus the process can be described with a very sparse amount of local models, i.e., with a parsimonious LMN model. The proposed method for constructing the LMN is finally tested on a drug absorption spectral process and compared to two other methods, namely, Lolimot and Hilomot. The comparison between the experimental results when using each method shows the usefulness of the proposed identification algorithm.

    The paper deals with deterministic and stochastic identification methods applied to the concrete neurophysiological systems. The deterministic identification was carried out for the system: efferent fibres-muscle. The obtained transition characteristics demonstrated dynamic nonlinearity of the system. Identification of the neuronal model and the "afferent fibres-synapses-neuron" system in mollusc Planorbis corneus was carried out using the stochastic methods. For these purpose the Wiener method of stochastic identification was expanded for the case of pulse trains as input and output signals. The weight of the nonlinear component in the Wiener model and accuracy of the model prediction were quantitatively estimated. The results obtained proves the possibility of using these identification methods for various neurophysiological systems.

  15. Nonlinear robust hierarchical control for nonlinear uncertain systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Leonessa Alexander

    1999-01-01

    Full Text Available A nonlinear robust control-system design framework predicated on a hierarchical switching controller architecture parameterized over a set of moving nominal system equilibria is developed. Specifically, using equilibria-dependent Lyapunov functions, a hierarchical nonlinear robust control strategy is developed that robustly stabilizes a given nonlinear system over a prescribed range of system uncertainty by robustly stabilizing a collection of nonlinear controlled uncertain subsystems. The robust switching nonlinear controller architecture is designed based on a generalized (lower semicontinuous Lyapunov function obtained by minimizing a potential function over a given switching set induced by the parameterized nominal system equilibria. The proposed framework robustly stabilizes a compact positively invariant set of a given nonlinear uncertain dynamical system with structured parametric uncertainty. Finally, the efficacy of the proposed approach is demonstrated on a jet engine propulsion control problem with uncertain pressure-flow map data.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper deals with modelling and parameter identification of nonlinear systems described by Hammerstein model having asymmetric static nonlinearities known as preload nonlinearity characteristic. The simultaneous use of both an easy decomposition technique and the generalized orthonormal bases leads to a particular form of Hammerstein model containing a minimal parameters number. The employ of orthonormal bases for the description of the linear dynamic block conducts to a linear regressor model, so that least squares techniques can be used for the parameter estimation. Singular Values Decomposition (SVD technique has been applied to separate the coupled parameters. To demonstrate the feasibility of the identification method, an illustrative example is included.

  2. Spectral decomposition of nonlinear systems with memory.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Svenkeson, Adam; Glaz, Bryan; Stanton, Samuel; West, Bruce J

    2016-02-01

    We present an alternative approach to the analysis of nonlinear systems with long-term memory that is based on the Koopman operator and a Lévy transformation in time. Memory effects are considered to be the result of interactions between a system and its surrounding environment. The analysis leads to the decomposition of a nonlinear system with memory into modes whose temporal behavior is anomalous and lacks a characteristic scale. On average, the time evolution of a mode follows a Mittag-Leffler function, and the system can be described using the fractional calculus. The general theory is demonstrated on the fractional linear harmonic oscillator and the fractional nonlinear logistic equation. When analyzing data from an ill-defined (black-box) system, the spectral decomposition in terms of Mittag-Leffler functions that we propose may uncover inherent memory effects through identification of a small set of dynamically relevant structures that would otherwise be obscured by conventional spectral methods. Consequently, the theoretical concepts we present may be useful for developing more general methods for numerical modeling that are able to determine whether observables of a dynamical system are better represented by memoryless operators, or operators with long-term memory in time, when model details are unknown.

    The focus of this paper is to build the damage identify system, which performs "system identification" to detect the positions and extents of structural damages.The identification of structural damage can be characterized as a nonlinear process which linear prediction models such as linear regression are not suitable.However, neural network techniques may provide an effective tool for system identification.The method of damage identification using the radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) is presented in this paper.Using this method, a simple reinforced concrete structure has been tested both in the absence and presence of noise.The results show that the RBFNN identification technology can be used with related success for the solution of dynamic damage identification problems, even in the presence of a noisy identify data.Furthermore, a remote identification system based on that is set up with Java Technologies.

  6. Nonlinear Identification Using Orthogonal Forward Regression With Nested Optimal Regularization.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hong, Xia; Chen, Sheng; Gao, Junbin; Harris, Chris J

    2015-12-01

    An efficient data based-modeling algorithm for nonlinear system identification is introduced for radial basis function (RBF) neural networks with the aim of maximizing generalization capability based on the concept of leave-one-out (LOO) cross validation. Each of the RBF kernels has its own kernel width parameter and the basic idea is to optimize the multiple pairs of regularization parameters and kernel widths, each of which is associated with a kernel, one at a time within the orthogonal forward regression (OFR) procedure. Thus, each OFR step consists of one model term selection based on the LOO mean square error (LOOMSE), followed by the optimization of the associated kernel width and regularization parameter, also based on the LOOMSE. Since like our previous state-of-the-art local regularization assisted orthogonal least squares (LROLS) algorithm, the same LOOMSE is adopted for model selection, our proposed new OFR algorithm is also capable of producing a very sparse RBF model with excellent generalization performance. Unlike our previous LROLS algorithm which requires an additional iterative loop to optimize the regularization parameters as well as an additional procedure to optimize the kernel width, the proposed new OFR algorithm optimizes both the kernel widths and regularization parameters within the single OFR procedure, and consequently the required computational complexity is dramatically reduced. Nonlinear system identification examples are included to demonstrate the effectiveness of this new approach in comparison to the well-known approaches of support vector machine and least absolute shrinkage and selection operator as well as the LROLS algorithm.

It is based on the analysis of virtual frameworks (VF, reflecting a state of a nonlinear part system. Construction VF is based on obtaining special an informational set describing a steady state of a nonlinear dynamic system. Introduction VF demands an estimation of structural identifiability of a system. This concept is associated with nonlinearity of system and properties VF. The method of an estimation of structural identifiability is proposed. The appearance of the insignificant virtual frameworks, not satisfying to the condition of structural identifiability, is considered. Algorithms for an estimation of a nonlinearity class on the basis of the analysis of sector sets are proposed. Methods and procedures of the estimation of framework single-valued and multiple -valued nonlinearities are proposed. The method of the structurally-frequency analysis is proposed and applied to validate the obtained solutions.

  15. A nonlinear state-space approach to hysteresis identification

    Science.gov (United States)

    Noël, J. P.; Esfahani, A. F.; Kerschen, G.; Schoukens, J.

    2017-02-01

    Most studies tackling hysteresis identification in the technical literature follow white-box approaches, i.e. they rely on the assumption that measured data obey a specific hysteretic model. Such an assumption may be a hard requirement to handle in real applications, since hysteresis is a highly individualistic nonlinear behaviour. The present paper adopts a black-box approach based on nonlinear state-space models to identify hysteresis dynamics. This approach is shown to provide a general framework to hysteresis identification, featuring flexibility and parsimony of representation. Nonlinear model terms are constructed as a multivariate polynomial in the state variables, and parameter estimation is performed by minimising weighted least-squares cost functions. Technical issues, including the selection of the model order and the polynomial degree, are discussed, and model validation is achieved in both broadband and sine conditions. The study is carried out numerically by exploiting synthetic data generated via the Bouc-Wen equations.

  19. The influence of and the identification of nonlinearity in flexible structures

    1988-01-01

    Several models were built at NASA Langley and used to demonstrate the following nonlinear behavior: internal resonance in a free response, principal parametric resonance and subcritical instability in a cantilever beam-lumped mass structure, combination resonance in a parametrically excited flexible beam, autoparametric interaction in a two-degree-of-freedom system, instability of the linear solution, saturation of the excited mode, subharmonic bifurcation, and chaotic responses. A video tape documenting these phenomena was made. An attempt to identify a simple structure consisting of two light-weight beams and two lumped masses using the Eigensystem Realization Algorithm showed the inherent difficulty of using a linear based theory to identify a particular nonlinearity. Preliminary results show the technique requires novel interpretation, and hence may not be useful for structural modes that are coupled by a guadratic nonlinearity. A literature survey was also completed on recent work in parametrically excited nonlinear system. In summary, nonlinear systems may possess unique behaviors that require nonlinear identification techniques based on an understanding of how nonlinearity affects the dynamic response of structures. In this was, the unique behaviors of nonlinear systems may be properly identified. Moreover, more accutate quantifiable estimates can be made once the qualitative model has been determined.

  2. A nonlinear signal-based control method and its applications to input identification for nonlinear SIMO problems

    Science.gov (United States)

    2014-12-01

    The problem of control system design can be conceptualised as identifying an input signal to a plant (the system to be controlled) so that the corresponding output matches that of a pre-defined reference signal. Primarily, this problem is solved via well-known techniques based upon the principle of feedback design, an essential component for ensuring stability and robustness of the controlled system. However, feedforward design techniques also have a large part to play, whereby (in the absence of feedback control and assuming that the plant is stable) a model of the plant dynamics can be used to modify the reference signal so that the resultant feedforward input signal generates a plant output signal that is sufficiently close to the original reference signal. The principal objective of this paper is to introduce a new nonlinear control method, called nonlinear signal-based control (NSBC) that can be executed as an on-line technique of feedforward compensation (used synonymously here with the phrase 'input identification') and an off-line technique of feedback compensation. NSBC determines the feedforward input signal to the plant by using an error signal, determined from the difference between the output signals from a linear model of the plant and from the nonlinear plant, under the same input signal. The efficacy of NSBC is examined via numerical examples using Matlab/Simulink and compared with alternative well-known methods based upon inverse transfer function compensation and also the method of high gain feedback control. NSBC was found to provide the most accurate input identification in all the examined cases of linear or nonlinear single-input, single-output and single-input, multi-output (SIMO) systems. Furthermore, in problems of structural and earthquake engineering, NSBC was also found to be particularly effective in estimating the original ground motion from a nonlinear SIMO system and its response.

    The aim of quantum system identification is to estimate the ingredients inside a black box, in which some quantum-mechanical unitary process takes place, by just looking at its input-output behavior. Here we establish a basic and general framework for quantum system identification, that allows us to classify how much knowledge about the quantum system is attainable, in principle, from a given experimental setup. We show that controllable closed quantum systems can be estimated up to unitary conjugation. Prior knowledge on some elements of the black box helps the system identification. We present an example in which a Bell measurement is more efficient to identify the system. When the topology of the system is known, the framework enables us to establish a general criterion for the estimability of the coupling constants in its Hamiltonian.

    This paper is concerned with the problem of recursive system identification using nonparametric Gaussian process model. Non-linear stochastic system in consideration is affine in control and given in the input-output form. The use of recursive Gaussian process algorithm for non-linear system identification is proposed to alleviate the computational burden of full Gaussian process. The problem of an online hyper-parameter estimation is handled using proposed ad-hoc procedure. The approach to system identification using recursive Gaussian process is compared with full Gaussian process in terms of model error and uncertainty as well as computational demands. Using Monte Carlo simulations it is shown, that the use of recursive Gaussian process with an ad-hoc learning procedure offers converging estimates of hyper-parameters and constant computational demands.

    2014-01-01

    In this paper, a new approach has been proposed to identify and model the dynamics of a highly maneuverable fighter aircraft through artificial neural networks (ANNs). In general, air-craft flight dynamics is considered as a nonlinear and coupled system whose modeling through ANNs, unlike classical approaches, does not require any aerodynamic or propulsion information and a few flight test data seem sufficient. In this study, for identification and modeling of the aircraft dynamics, two known structures of internal and external recurrent neural networks (RNNs) and a proposed structure called hybrid combined recurrent neural network have been used and compared. In order to improve the training process, an appropriate evolutionary method has been applied to simultaneously train and optimize the parameters of ANNs. In this research, it has been shown that six ANNs each with three inputs and one output, trained by flight test data, can model the dynamic behavior of the highly maneuverable aircraft with acceptable accuracy and without any priori knowledge about the system.

  9. Crack identification for rotating machines based on a nonlinear approach

    2016-10-01

    In a previous contribution, a crack identification methodology based on a nonlinear approach was proposed. The technique uses external applied diagnostic forces at certain frequencies attaining combinational resonances, together with a pseudo-random optimization code, known as Differential Evolution, in order to characterize the signatures of the crack in the spectral responses of the flexible rotor. The conditions under which combinational resonances appear were determined by using the method of multiple scales. In real conditions, the breathing phenomenon arises from the stress and strain distribution on the cross-sectional area of the crack. This mechanism behavior follows the static and dynamic loads acting on the rotor. Therefore, the breathing crack can be simulated according to the Mayes' model, in which the crack transition from fully opened to fully closed is described by a cosine function. However, many contributions try to represent the crack behavior by machining a small notch on the shaft instead of the fatigue process. In this paper, the open and breathing crack models are compared regarding their dynamic behavior and the efficiency of the proposed identification technique. The additional flexibility introduced by the crack is calculated by using the linear fracture mechanics theory (LFM). The open crack model is based on LFM and the breathing crack model corresponds to the Mayes' model, which combines LFM with a given breathing mechanism. For illustration purposes, a rotor composed by a horizontal flexible shaft, two rigid discs, and two self-aligning ball bearings is used to compose a finite element model of the system. Then, numerical simulation is performed to determine the dynamic behavior of the rotor. Finally, the results of the inverse problem conveyed show that the methodology is a reliable tool that is able to estimate satisfactorily the location and depth of the crack.

  10. Observability and Controllability for Smooth Nonlinear Systems

    OpenAIRE

    Schaft, A.J. van der

    1982-01-01

    The definition of a smooth nonlinear system as proposed recently, is elaborated as a natural generalization of the more common definitions of a smooth nonlinear input-output system. Minimality for such systems can be defined in a very direct geometric way, and already implies a usual notion of observability, namely, local weak observability. As an application of this theory, it is shown that observable nonlinear Hamiltonian systems are necessarily controllable, and vice versa.

    We present an efficient algorithm for computing discrete abstractions of arbitrary memory span for nonlinear discrete-time and sampled systems, in which, apart from possibly numerically integrating ordinary differential equations, the only nontrivial operation to be performed repeatedly is to distinguish empty from non-empty convex polyhedra. We also provide sufficient conditions for the convexity of attainable sets, which is an important requirement for the correctness of the method we propose. It turns out that requirement can be met under rather mild conditions, which essentially reduce to sufficient smoothness in the case of sampled systems. Practicability of our approach in the design of discrete controllers for continuous plants is demonstrated by an example.

    The concept of computer system identity in computer science bears just as much importance as does the identity of an individual in a human society. Nevertheless, the identity of a computer system is incomparably harder to determine, because there is no standard system of identification we could use and, moreover, a computer system during its life-time is quite indefinite, since all of its regular and necessary hardware and software upgrades soon make it almost unrecognizable: after a number o...

    2015-01-01

    In this paper, an identification method for nonlinear systems with colored measurement noise is proposed by using the maximum likelihood criterion. Firstly, the colored measurement noise is decorrelated based on the measurement differencing approach, and a new measurement equation is derived. Thus, the nonlinear system identification problem with colored measurement noise is transformed into the nonlinear system identification problem with white measurement noise and one-step delayed state. Secondly, a new nonlinear system identification method with maximum likelihood estimation is proposed based on the expectation maximization (EM) algorithm, which consists of expectation step (E-step) and the maximization step (M-step). In the E-step, the expectation of the complete data log-likelihood function is approximately calculated based on currently estimated parameters and the Gaussian approximated filter and smoother for nonlinear system with colored measurement noise. In the M-step, the approximately calculated expectation value is maximized, and noise parameter estimations are updated analytically and model parameter estimations are updated approximately by using Newton method. Finally, the efficiency of the proposed algorithm is illustrated in numerical simulations.%利用最大似然判据,本文提出了一种带有色量测噪声的非线性系统辨识方法. 首先,利用量测差分方法将有色量测噪声白色化, 获得新的量测方程, 从而将带有色量测噪声的非线性系统辨识问题转化成带白色量测噪声和一步延迟状态的非线性系统辨识问题. 其次, 利用期望最大化(Expectation maximization, EM) 算法提出了一种新的基于最大似然估计的非线性系统辨识方法,该算法由期望步骤(Expectation step, E-step)和最大化步骤(Maximization step, M-step)两部分组成. 在期望步骤中,基于当前估计的参数并利用带有色量测噪声的高斯近似滤波器和平滑器,近似计算完

  19. IDENTIFICATION FOR WIENER SYSTEMS WITH INTERNAL NOISE

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Qijiang SONG; Hanfu CHEN

    2008-01-01

    This paper considers identification of Wiener systems for which the internal variables and output are corrupted by noises. When the internal noise is a sequence of independent and identically distributed (iid) Gaussian random variables, by the Weierstrass transformation (WT) the system under consideration turns to be a Wiener system without internal noise. The nonlinear part of the latter is nothing else than the WT of the nonlinear function of the original system, while the linear subsystem is the same for both systems before and after WT. Under reasonable conditions, the recursive identification algorithms are proposed for the transformed Wiener system, and strong consistency for the estimates is established. By using the inverse WT the nonparametric estimates for the nonlinearity of the original system are derived, and they are strongly consistent if the nonlinearity in the original system is a polynomial. Similar results also hold in the case where the internal noise is non-Gaussian. Simulation results are fully consistent with the theoretical analysis.

    Vismara, S. O.; Ricci, S.; Bellini, M.; Trittoni, L.

    2016-06-01

    The objective of the present paper is to describe a procedure to identify and model the non-linear behaviour of structural elements. The procedure herein applied can be divided into two main steps: the system identification and the finite element model updating. The application of the restoring force surface method as a strategy to characterize and identify localized non-linearities has been investigated. This method, which works in the time domain, has been chosen because it has `built-in' characterization capabilities, it allows a direct non-parametric identification of non-linear single-degree-of-freedom systems and it can easily deal with sine-sweep excitations. Two different application examples are reported. At first, a numerical test case has been carried out to investigate the modelling techniques in the case of non-linear behaviour based on the presence of a free-play in the model. The second example concerns the flap of the Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle that successfully completed its 100-min mission on 11 February 2015. The flap was developed under the responsibility of Thales Alenia Space Italia, the prime contractor, which provided the experimental data needed to accomplish the investigation. The procedure here presented has been applied to the results of modal testing performed on the article. Once the non-linear parameters were identified, they were used to update the finite element model in order to prove its capability of predicting the flap behaviour for different load levels.

  2. Identification of nonlinear vibrating structures by polynomial expansion in the z-domain

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fasana, Alessandro; Garibaldi, Luigi; Marchesiello, Stefano

    2017-02-01

    A new method in the frequency domain for the identification of nonlinear vibrating structures is described, by adopting the perspective of nonlinearities as internal feedback forces. The technique is based on a polynomial expansion representation of the frequency response function of the underlying linear system, relying on a z-domain formulation. A least squares approach is adopted to take into account the information of all the frequency response functions but, when large data sets are used, the solution of the resulting system of algebraic linear equations can be a difficult task. A procedure to drastically reduce the matrix dimensions and consequently the computational cost - which largely depends on the number of spectral lines - is adopted, leading to a compact and well conditioned problem. The robustness and numerical performances of the method are demonstrated by its implementation on simulated data from single and two degree of freedom systems with typical nonlinear characteristics.

  3. Universal Approximation of a Class of Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Neural Networks in Nonlinear Identification

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Neural networks (NNs, type-1 fuzzy logic systems (T1FLSs, and interval type-2 fuzzy logic systems (IT2FLSs have been shown to be universal approximators, which means that they can approximate any nonlinear continuous function. Recent research shows that embedding an IT2FLS on an NN can be very effective for a wide number of nonlinear complex systems, especially when handling imperfect or incomplete information. In this paper we show, based on the Stone-Weierstrass theorem, that an interval type-2 fuzzy neural network (IT2FNN is a universal approximator, which uses a set of rules and interval type-2 membership functions (IT2MFs for this purpose. Simulation results of nonlinear function identification using the IT2FNN for one and three variables and for the Mackey-Glass chaotic time series prediction are presented to illustrate the concept of universal approximation.

  14. Robust identification method for nonlinear model structures and its application to high-performance aircraft

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shi, Zhong-Ke; Wu, Fang-Xiang

    2013-06-01

    A common assumption is that the model structure is known for modelling high performance aircraft. In practice, this is not the case. Actually, structure identification plays the most important role in the processing of nonlinear system modelling. The integration of mode structure identification and parameter estimation is an efficient method to construct the model for high performance aircraft, which is nonlinear and also contains uncertainties. This article presents an efficient method for identifying nonlinear model structure and estimating parameters for high-performance aircraft model, which contains uncertainties. The parameters associated with nonlinear terms are considered one after the other if they should be included in the nonlinear model until a stopping criterion is met, which is based on Akaike's information criterion. A numerically efficient U-D factorisation is presented to avoid complex computation of high-order matrices. The proposed method is applied to flight test data of a high-performance aircraft. The results demonstrate that the proposed method could obtain the good aircraft model with a reasonably good fidelity based on the comparison with flight test data.

    Banks, H. T.; Reich, Simeon; Rosen, I. G.

    1988-01-01

    An abstract framework and convergence theory is developed for Galerkin approximation for inverse problems involving the identification of nonautonomous nonlinear distributed parameter systems. A set of relatively easily verified conditions is provided which are sufficient to guarantee the existence of optimal solutions and their approximation by a sequence of solutions to a sequence of approximating finite dimensional identification problems. The approach is based on the theory of monotone operators in Banach spaces and is applicable to a reasonably broad class of nonlinear distributed systems. Operator theoretic and variational techniques are used to establish a fundamental convergence result. An example involving evolution systems with dynamics described by nonstationary quasilinear elliptic operators along with some applications are presented and discussed.

  18. Stochastic Inverse Identification of Nonlinear Roll Damping Moment of a Ship Moving at Nonzero-Forward Speeds

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    S. L. Han

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The nonlinear responses of ship rolling motion characterized by a roll damping moment are of great interest to naval architects and ocean engineers. Modeling and identification of the nonlinear damping moment are essential to incorporate the inherent nonlinearity in design, analysis, and control of a ship. A stochastic nonparametric approach for identification of nonlinear damping in the general mechanical system has been presented in the literature (Han and Kinoshits 2012. The method has been also applied to identification of the nonlinear damping moment of a ship at zero-forward speed (Han and Kinoshits 2013. In the presence of forward speed, however, the characteristic of roll damping moment of a ship is significantly changed due to the lift effect. In this paper, the stochastic inverse method is applied to identification of the nonlinear damping moment of a ship moving at nonzero-forward speed. The workability and validity of the method are verified with laboratory tests under controlled conditions. In experimental trials, two different types of ship rolling motion are considered: time-dependent transient motion and frequency-dependent periodic motion. It is shown that this method enables the inherent nonlinearity in damping moment to be estimated, including its reliability analysis.

    @@ Bifurcation behaviour of a nonlinear wave system is studied by utilizing the data in solving the nonlinear wave equation. By shifting to the steady wave frame and taking into account the Doppler effect, the nonlinear wave can be transformed into a set of coupled oscillators with its (stable or unstable) steady wave as the fixed point.It is found that in the chosen parameter regime, both mode amplitudes and phases of the wave can bifurcate to limit cycles attributed to the Hopf instability. It is emphasized that the investigation is carried out in a pure nonlinear wave framework, and the method can be used for the further exploring routes to turbulence.

    2015-03-01

    This paper presents a novel approach for output-only nonlinear system identification of structures using data recorded during earthquake events. In this approach, state-of-the-art nonlinear structural FE modeling and analysis techniques are combined with Bayesian Inference method to estimate (i) time-invariant parameters governing the nonlinear hysteretic material constitutive models used in the FE model of the structure, and (ii) the time history of the earthquake ground motion. To validate the performance of the proposed framework, the simulated responses of a bridge pier to an earthquake ground motion is polluted with artificial output measurement noise and used to jointly estimate the unknown material parameters and the time history of the earthquake ground motion. This proof-of-concept example illustrates the successful performance of the proposed approach even in the presence of high measurement noise.

    2016-01-01

    We study a system of interacting matter quasiparticles strongly coupled to photons inside an optomechanical cavity. The resulting normal modes of the system are represented by hybrid polaritonic quasiparticles, which acquire effective nonlinearity. Its strength is influenced by the presence of the mechanical mode and depends on the resonance frequency of the cavity. This leads to an interactive type of optomechanical coupling, being distinct from the previously studied dispersive and dissipative couplings in optomechanical systems. The emergent interactive coupling is shown to generate effective optical nonlinearity terms of high order, being quartic in the polariton number. We consider particular systems of exciton-polaritons and dipolaritons, and show that the induced effective optical nonlinearity due to the interactive coupling can exceed in magnitude the strength of Kerr nonlinear terms, such as those arising from polariton-polariton interactions. As applications, we show that the higher order terms give...

    Increasing complexity and performance and reliability expectations make modeling of automotive system both more difficult and more urgent. Automotive control has slowly evolved from an add-on to classical engine and vehicle design to a key technology to enforce consumption, pollution and safety limits. Modeling, however, is still mainly based on classical methods, even though much progress has been done in the identification community to speed it up and improve it. This book, the product of a workshop of representatives of different communities, offers an insight on how to close the gap and exploit this progress for the next generations of vehicles.

In the absence of the standard exosystem hypothesis, we assume availability of the instantaneous values of the exogenous signal and its first time-derivative for use in the control law.For affine nonlinear systems, the necessary and sufficient conditions of the solvability of approximate output regulation problem are obtained. The precise form of the control law is presented under some suitable assumptions.

    In many large systems, such as those encountered in biology or economics, the dynamics are nonlinear and are only known very coarsely. It is often the case, however, that the signs (excitation or inhibition) of individual interactions are known. This paper extends to nonlinear systems the classical criteria of linear sign stability introduced in the 70's, yielding simple sufficient conditions to determine stability using only the sign patterns of the interactions.

    The existing adaptive synchronization technique based on the stability theory and invariance principle of dynamical systems, though theoretically proved to be valid for parameters identification in specific models, is always showing slow convergence rate and even failed in practice when the number of parameters becomes large. Here, for parameters update, a novel nonlinear adaptive rule is proposed to accelerate the rate. Its feasibility is validated by analytical arguments as well as by specific parameters identification in the Lotka-Volterra model with multiple species. Two adjustable factors in this rule influence the identification accuracy, which means that a proper choice of these factors leads to an optimal performance of this rule. In addition, a feasible method for avoiding the occurrence of the approximate linear dependence among terms with parameters on the synchronized manifold is also proposed.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on the nonlinear dynamics modeling and parameter identification of an Aluminum Honeycomb Panel (AHP with multiple bolted joints. Finite element method using eight-node solid elements is exploited to model the panel and the bolted connection interface as a homogeneous, isotropic plate and as a thin layer of nonlinear elastic-plastic material, respectively. The material properties of a thin layer are defined by a bilinear elastic plastic model, which can describe the energy dissipation and softening phenomena in the bolted joints under nonlinear states. Experimental tests at low and high excitation levels are performed to reveal the dynamic characteristics of the bolted structure. In particular, the linear material parameters of the panel are identified via experimental tests at low excitation levels, whereas the nonlinear material parameters of the thin layer are updated by using the genetic algorithm to minimize the residual error between the measured and the simulation data at a high excitation level. It is demonstrated by comparing the frequency responses of the updated FEM and the experimental system that the thin layer of bilinear elastic-plastic material is very effective for modeling the nonlinear joint interface of the assembled structure with multiple bolts.

    We numerically investigate hyperchaotic behavior in an autonomous nonlinear system of fractional order. It is demonstrated that hyperchaotic behavior of the integer order nonlinear system is preserved when the order becomes fractional. The system under study has been reported in the literature [Murali K, Tamasevicius A, Mykolaitis G, Namajunas A, Lindberg E. Hyperchaotic system with unstable oscillators. Nonlinear Phenom Complex Syst 3(1);2000:7-10], and consists of two nonlinearly coupled unstable oscillators, each consisting of an amplifier and an LC resonance loop. The fractional order model of this system is obtained by replacing one or both of its capacitors by fractional order capacitors. Hyperchaos is then assessed by studying the Lyapunov spectrum. The presence of multiple positive Lyapunov exponents in the spectrum is indicative of hyperchaos. Using the appropriate system control parameters, it is demonstrated that hyperchaotic attractors are obtained for a system order less than 4. Consequently, we present a conjecture that fourth-order hyperchaotic nonlinear systems can still produce hyperchaotic behavior with a total system order of 3 + {epsilon}, where 1 > {epsilon} > 0.

    2017-03-01

    The nonlinear characteristics of an autoparametric vibration system are investigated. This system consists of a base structure and a cantilever beam with a tip mass. The dynamic equations for the system are derived using the extended Hamilton's principle. The method of multiple scales (MMS) is used to determine an approximate analytical solution of the nonlinear governing equations and, hence, analyze the stability and bifurcation of the system. Compared with the numerical simulation, the first-order MMS is not sufficient. A Lagrangian-based approach is proposed to perform a second-order analysis, which is applicable to a large class of nonlinear systems. The effects of the amplitude and frequency of the external force, damping and frequency of the attached cantilever beam, and the tip mass on the nonlinear responses of the autoparametric vibration system are determined. The results show that this system exhibits many interesting nonlinear phenomena including saturation, jumps, hysteresis and different kinds of bifurcations, such as saddle-node, supercritical pitchfork and subcritical pitchfork bifurcations. Power spectra, phase portraits and Poincare maps are employed to analyze the unstable behavior and the associated Hopf bifurcation and chaos. Depending on the application of such a system, its dynamical behaviors could be exploited or avoided.

    A method for identification of a synchronous generator is suggested in this paper. The method uses the theoretical relations of machine parameters and the Prony method to find the state space model of the system. Such models are useful for controller design and stability tests. The proposed identification method is applied to a third order model of a synchronous generator. In this study, the field voltage is considered as the input and the active output power and the rotor angle are considered as the outputs of the synchronous generator. Simulation results show good accuracy of the identified model. (author)

    2001-01-01

    A novel adaptive control and identification on-line method is proposed for a class of chaotic system with uncertain parameters. We prove that, using the presented method, a controller and identifier is developed which can remove chaos in nonlinear systems and make the system asymptotically stabilizing to an arbitrarily desired smooth orbit. And at the same time, estimates to uncertain parameters converge to their true values. The advantage of our method over the existing result is that the controller and identifier is directly constructed by analytic formula without knowing unknown bounds about uncertain parameters in advance. A computer simulation example is given to validate the proposed approach.

    Full Text Available Preisach model is a well-known hysteresis identification method in which the hysteresis is modeled by linear combination of hysteresis operators. Although Preisach model describes the main features of system with hysteresis behavior, due to its rigorous numerical nature, it is not convenient to use in real-time control applications. Here a novel neural network approach based on the Preisach model is addressed, provides accurate hysteresis nonlinearity modeling in comparison with the classical Preisach model and can be used for many applications such as hysteresis nonlinearity control and identification in SMA and Piezo actuators and performance evaluation in some physical systems such as magnetic materials. To evaluate the proposed approach, an experimental apparatus consisting one-dimensional flexible aluminum beam actuated with an SMA wire is used. It is shown that the proposed ANN-based Preisach model can identify hysteresis nonlinearity more accurately than the classical one. It also has powerful ability to precisely predict the higher-order hysteresis minor loops behavior even though only the first-order reversal data are in use. It is also shown that to get the same precise results in the classical Preisach model, many more data should be used, and this directly increases the experimental cost.

    在实际非线性系统中,由于资源的限制,使得输入信号快速刷新,输出信号慢速采样。利用获得的非均匀采样数据对原非线性系统辨识存在一定困难。为此,通过提升技术,把非线性系统的多个特征点局部的线性模型转化为模糊模型的后件线性模型。在此基础上,提出基于竞争学习和递推梯度下降方法的辨识算法。通过定理证明:输入信号在持续激励条件下,模糊模型的参数能够一致性收敛;针对化工pH中和过程非线性系统,采用非均匀采样数据,建立其模糊模型,通过实际数据与模糊模型输出数据误差对比,表明了实际系统在非均匀采样条件下,模糊辨识能够建立其过程模型,验证了提出方法的有效性。%In practical nonlinear system, due to the limitation of resources, the input signal is quickly refreshed, while the output signal is slowly sampled. Thus, it is difficult to identify the original nonlinear system by using the sampled data. For this purpose, the linear models of multiple characteristic points of nonlinear system are transformed into a series of consequent linear models of the fuzzy model by the lifting technique. On this basis, we propose a fuzzy identification algorithm based on competitive learning and recursive gradient descent method. And we prove that the parameters of the fuzzy model can be uniformly convergent under the condition of persistent excitation. In view of chemical pH neutralization process, the fuzzy model of the chemical system is established by using non⁃uniformly sampled data. By comparing the output errors between the actual data and the output data of the fuzzy model, it is shown that the fuzzy identification method can establish the process model in the real system under the condition of non⁃uniform sampling, which verifies the validity of the proposed method.

    The primary goal of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is to detect structural anomalies before they reach a critical level. Because of the potential life-safety and economic benefits, SHM has been widely studied over the past decade. In recent years there has been an effort to provide solid mathematical and physical underpinnings for these methods; however, most focus on systems that behave linearly in their undamaged state - a condition that often does not hold in complex 'real world' systems and systems for which monitoring begins mid-lifecycle. In this work, we highlight the inadequacy of linear-based methodology in handling initially nonlinear systems. We then show how the recently developed autoregressive support vector machine (AR-SVM) approach to time series modeling can be used for detecting damage in a system that exhibits initially nonlinear response. This process is applied to data acquired from a structure with induced nonlinearity tested in a laboratory environment.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents a new idea of controller design for complex systems. The nonlinearity index method was first developed for error propagation of nonlinear system. The nonlinearity indices access the boundary between the strong and the weak nonlinearities of the system model. The algorithm of nonlinearity index according to engineering application is first proposed in this paper. Applying this method on nonlinear systems is an effective way to measure the nonlinear strength of dynamics model over the full flight envelope. The nonlinearity indices access the boundary between the strong and the weak nonlinearities of system model. According to the different nonlinear strength of dynamical model, the control system is designed. The simulation time of dynamical complex system is selected by the maximum value of dynamic nonlinearity indices. Take a missile as example; dynamical system and control characteristic of missile are simulated. The simulation results show that the method is correct and appropriate.

    The lack of a deeper understanding of how olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) encode odors has hindered the progress in understanding the olfactory signal processing in higher brain centers. Here we employ methods of system identification to investigate the encoding of time-varying odor stimuli and their representation for further processing in the spike domain by Drosophila OSNs. In order to apply system identification techniques, we built a novel low-turbulence odor delivery system that allowed us to deliver airborne stimuli in a precise and reproducible fashion. The system provides a 1% tolerance in stimulus reproducibility and an exact control of odor concentration and concentration gradient on a millisecond time scale. Using this novel setup, we recorded and analyzed the in-vivo response of OSNs to a wide range of time-varying odor waveforms. We report for the first time that across trials the response of OR59b OSNs is very precise and reproducible. Further, we empirically show that the response of an OSN depends not only on the concentration, but also on the rate of change of the odor concentration. Moreover, we demonstrate that a two-dimensional (2D) Encoding Manifold in a concentration-concentration gradient space provides a quantitative description of the neuron's response. We then use the white noise system identification methodology to construct one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) Linear-Nonlinear-Poisson (LNP) cascade models of the sensory neuron for a fixed mean odor concentration and fixed contrast. We show that in terms of predicting the intensity rate of the spike train, the 2D LNP model performs on par with the 1D LNP model, with a root mean-square error (RMSE) increase of about 5 to 10%. Surprisingly, we find that for a fixed contrast of the white noise odor waveforms, the nonlinear block of each of the two models changes with the mean input concentration. The shape of the nonlinearities of both the 1D and the 2D LNP model appears to be

    The proton exchange membrane generation technology is highly efficient and clean, and is considered as the most hopeful "green" power technology. The operating principles of proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) system involve thermodynamics, electrochemistry, hydrodynamics and mass transfer theory, which comprise a complex nonlinear system, for which it is difficult to establish a mathematical model. This paper first simply analyzes the necessity of the PEMFC generation technology, then introduces the generating principle from four aspects: electrode, single cell, stack, system; and then uses the approach and self-study ability of artificial neural network to build the model of nonlinear system, and adapts the Levenberg-Marquardt BP (LMBP) to build the electric characteristic model of PEMFC. The model uses experimental data as training specimens, on the condition the system is provided enough hydrogen. Considering the flow velocity of air (or oxygen) and the cell operational temperature as inputs, the cell voltage and current density as the outputs and establishing the electric characteristic model of PEMFC according to the different cell temperatures. The voltage-current output curves of model has some guidance effect for improving the cell performance, and provide basic data for optimizing cell performance that have practical significance.

    1992-01-01

    In this paper digital learning control methods are developed primarily for use in single-input, single-output nonlinear dynamic systems. Conditions for convergence of the basic form of learning control based on integral control concepts are given, and shown to be satisfied by a large class of nonlinear problems. It is shown that it is not the gross nonlinearities of the differential equations that matter in the convergence, but rather the much smaller nonlinearities that can manifest themselves during the short time interval of one sample time. New algorithms are developed that eliminate restrictions on the size of the learning gain, and on knowledge of the appropriate sign of the learning gain, for convergence to zero error in tracking a feasible desired output trajectory. It is shown that one of the new algorithms can give guaranteed convergence in the presence of actuator saturation constraints, and indicate when the requested trajectory is beyond the actuator capabilities.

    In order to develop the nonlinear echo image system to diagnose pathological changes in biological tissue , a simple physical model to analyse the character of nonlinear reflected wave in biological medium is postulated. The propagation of large amplitude plane sound wave in layered biological media is analysed for the one dimensional case by the method of successive approximation and the expression for the second order wave reflected from any interface of layered biological media is obtained. The relations between the second order reflection coefficients and the nonlinear parameters of medium below the interface are studied in three layers interfaces. Finally, the second order reflection coefficients of four layered media are calculated numerically. The results indicate that the nonlinear parameter B/A of each layer of biological media can be determined by the reflection method.

    A Bargmann symmetry constraint is proposed for the Lax pairs and the adjoint Lax pairs of the Dirac systems. It is shown that the spatial part of the nonlinearized Lax pairs and adjoint Lax pairs is a finite dimensional Linuville integrable Hamiltonian system and that under the control of the spatial part, the time parts of the nonlinearized Lax pairs and adjoint Lax pairs are interpreted as a hierarchy of commutative, finite dimensional Linuville integrable Hamiltoian systems whose Hamiltonian functions consist of a series of integrals of motion for the spatial part. Moreover an invaiutive representation of solutions of the Dirac systems exhibits their integrability by quadratures. This kind of symmetry constraint procedure involving thespectral problem and the adjoint spectral problem is referred to as a binary nonlinearization technique like a binary Darhoux transformation.

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Reverse engineering gene networks and identifying regulatory interactions are integral to understanding cellular decision making processes. Advancement in high throughput experimental techniques has initiated innovative data driven analysis of gene regulatory networks. However, inherent noise associated with biological systems requires numerous experimental replicates for reliable conclusions. Furthermore, evidence of robust algorithms directly exploiting basic biological traits are few. Such algorithms are expected to be efficient in their performance and robust in their prediction. Results We have developed a network identification algorithm to accurately infer both the topology and strength of regulatory interactions from time series gene expression data in the presence of significant experimental noise and non-linear behavior. In this novel formulism, we have addressed data variability in biological systems by integrating network identification with the bootstrap resampling technique, hence predicting robust interactions from limited experimental replicates subjected to noise. Furthermore, we have incorporated non-linearity in gene dynamics using the S-system formulation. The basic network identification formulation exploits the trait of sparsity of biological interactions. Towards that, the identification algorithm is formulated as an integer-programming problem by introducing binary variables for each network component. The objective function is targeted to minimize the network connections subjected to the constraint of maximal agreement between the experimental and predicted gene dynamics. The developed algorithm is validated using both in silico and experimental data-sets. These studies show that the algorithm can accurately predict the topology and connection strength of the in silico networks, as quantified by high precision and recall, and small discrepancy between the actual and predicted kinetic parameters

    2017-04-01

    As a complex system, Earth and its major integrated and dynamically interacting subsystems (e.g., hydrosphere, atmosphere) display nonlinear behavior in response to internal and external influences. The Earth Nonlinear Dynamic Complex Systems (ENDCS) ontology formally represents the semantics of the knowledge about the nonlinear system element (agent) behavior, function, and structure, inter-agent and agent-environment feedback loops, and the emergent collective properties of the whole complex system as the result of interaction of the agents with other agents and their environment. It also models nonlinear concepts such as aperiodic, random chaotic behavior, sensitivity to initial conditions, bifurcation of dynamic processes, levels of organization, self-organization, aggregated and isolated functionality, and emergence of collective complex behavior at the system level. By incorporating several existing ontologies, the ENDCS ontology represents the dynamic system variables and the rules of transformation of their state, emergent state, and other features of complex systems such as the trajectories in state (phase) space (attractor and strange attractor), basins of attractions, basin divide (separatrix), fractal dimension, and system's interface to its environment. The ontology also defines different object properties that change the system behavior, function, and structure and trigger instability. ENDCS will help to integrate the data and knowledge related to the five complex subsystems of Earth by annotating common data types, unifying the semantics of shared terminology, and facilitating interoperability among different fields of Earth science.

    Daunizeau, J.; Friston, K. J.; Kiebel, S. J.

    2009-11-01

    In this paper, we describe a general variational Bayesian approach for approximate inference on nonlinear stochastic dynamic models. This scheme extends established approximate inference on hidden-states to cover: (i) nonlinear evolution and observation functions, (ii) unknown parameters and (precision) hyperparameters and (iii) model comparison and prediction under uncertainty. Model identification or inversion entails the estimation of the marginal likelihood or evidence of a model. This difficult integration problem can be finessed by optimising a free-energy bound on the evidence using results from variational calculus. This yields a deterministic update scheme that optimises an approximation to the posterior density on the unknown model variables. We derive such a variational Bayesian scheme in the context of nonlinear stochastic dynamic hierarchical models, for both model identification and time-series prediction. The computational complexity of the scheme is comparable to that of an extended Kalman filter, which is critical when inverting high dimensional models or long time-series. Using Monte-Carlo simulations, we assess the estimation efficiency of this variational Bayesian approach using three stochastic variants of chaotic dynamic systems. We also demonstrate the model comparison capabilities of the method, its self-consistency and its predictive power.

Nonlinear matrix inequality which has the good computation property of convex feasibility is employed to derive some sufficient conditions to guarantee that the nonlinear descriptor systems have robust disturbance attenuation performance, which avoids the computational difficulties in conversing nonlinear matrix and Hamilton-Jacobi inequality. The computation property of convex feasibility of nonlinear matrix inequality makes it possible to apply the results of nonlinear robust control to practice.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bekiaris-Liberis, Nikolaos

    In this dissertation we develop systematic procedures for the control and analysis of general nonlinear systems with delays and of nonlinear PDE systems. We design predictor feedback laws (i.e., feedback laws that use the future, rather than the current state of the system) for the compensation of delays (i.e., after the control signal reaches the system for the first time, the system behaves as there were no delay at all) that can be time-varying or state-dependent, on the input and on the state of nonlinear systems. We also provide designs of predic- tor feedback laws for linear systems with constant distributed delays and known or unknown plant parameters, and for linear systems with simultaneous known or unknown constant delays on the input and the state. Moreover, we intro- duce infinite-dimensional backstepping transformations for each particular prob-lem, which enables us to construct Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals. With the available Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals we study stability, as well as, robust- ness of our control laws to plant uncertainties. We deal with coupled PDE-ODE systems. We consider nonlinear systems with wave actuator dynamics, for which we design a predictor inspired feedback law. We study stability of the closed-loop system either by constructing Lyapunov functionals, or using arguments of explicit solutions. We also consider linear sys- tems with distributed actuator and sensor dynamics governed by diffusion or wave PDEs, for which we design stabilizing feedback laws. We study stability of the closed-loop systems using Lyapunov functionals that we construct with the intro- duction of infinite-dimensional transformations of forwarding type. Finally, we develop a control design methodology for coupled nonlinear first-order hyperbolic PDEs through an application to automotive catalysts.

    In quantitative genetics, the effects of developmental relationships among traits on microevolution are generally represented by the contribution of pleiotropy to additive genetic covariances. Pleiotropic additive genetic covariances arise only from the average effects of alleles on multiple traits, and therefore the evolutionary importance of nonlinearities in development is generally neglected in quantitative genetic views on evolution. However, nonlinearities in relationships among traits at the level of whole organisms are undeniably important to biology in general, and therefore critical to understanding evolution. I outline a system for characterizing key quantitative parameters in nonlinear developmental systems, which yields expressions for quantities such as trait means and phenotypic and genetic covariance matrices. I then develop a system for quantitative prediction of evolution in nonlinear developmental systems. I apply the system to generating a new hypothesis for why direct stabilizing selection is rarely observed. Other uses will include separation of purely correlative from direct and indirect causal effects in studying mechanisms of selection, generation of predictions of medium-term evolutionary trajectories rather than immediate predictions of evolutionary change over single generation time-steps, and the development of efficient and biologically motivated models for separating additive from epistatic genetic variances and covariances.

  7. Identification of parameters in nonlinear geotechnical models using extenden Kalman filter

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Direct measurement of relevant system parameters often represents a problem due to different limitations. In geomechanics, measurement of geotechnical material constants which constitute a material model is usually a very diffcult task even with modern test equipment. Back-analysis has proved to be a more effcient and more economic method for identifying material constants because it needs measurement data such as settlements, pore pressures, etc., which are directly measurable, as inputs. Among many model parameter identification methods, the Kalman filter method has been applied very effectively in recent years. In this paper, the extended Kalman filter – local iteration procedure incorporated with finite element analysis (FEA software has been implemented. In order to prove the effciency of the method, parameter identification has been performed for a nonlinear geotechnical model.

Three stochastic nonlinear control design schemes are developed. Furthermore, a new stochastic gain assignment method is developed for a class of uncertain interconnected stochastic nonlinear systems. This method can be combined with the nonlinear small-gain theorem to design partial-state feedback controllers for stochastic nonlinear systems.

    In many fields of research nonlinear dynamical systems are investigated. When more than one process is measured, besides the distinct properties of the individual processes, their interactions are of interest. Often linear methods such as coherence are used for the analysis. The estimation of coherence can lead to false conclusions when applied without fulfilling several key assumptions. We introduce a data driven method to optimize the choice of the parameters for spectral estimation. Its applicability is demonstrated based on analytical calculations and exemplified in a simulation study. We complete our investigation with an application to nonlinear tremor signals in Parkinson's disease. In particular, we analyze electroencephalogram and electromyogram data.

    Statistical mechanics of the discrete nonlinear Schrodinger equation is studied by means of analytical and numerical techniques. The lower bound of the Hamiltonian permits the construction of standard Gibbsian equilibrium measures for positive temperatures. Beyond the line of T = infinity, we identify a phase transition through a discontinuity in the partition function. The phase transition is demonstrated to manifest itself in the creation of breatherlike localized excitations. Interrelation between the statistical mechanics and the nonlinear dynamics of the system is explored numerically in both regimes.

Aiming at NSM, a novel method is proposed to estimate parameter of NSM by combining the Bacterial Swarm Foraging for Optimization(DSFO). BSFO simulates the social behavior of foraging bacteria, in which the bacteria positions in the parameter spaces are set as the parameters of NSM, and the precision and efficiency for parameters identification are improved. Applied to heavy oil thermal cracking model, the method gets the precise process model, and the model outputs coincide to the actual outputs. The simulation results show that BSFO algorithm provides an attractive method to identify parameters of NSM.

  8. Control of nonlinear systems with applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pan, Haizhou

    In practical applications of feedback control, most actuators exhibit physical constraints that limit the control amplitude and/or rate. The principal challenge of control design problem for linear systems with input constraints is to ensure closed-loop stability and yield a good transient performance in the presence of amplitude and/or rate-limited control. Since actuator saturation manifests itself as a nonlinear behavior in an otherwise linear system, the development of a nonconservative saturation control design methodology poses a significant challenge. In particular, it is well known that unstable linear systems can be stabilized using smooth controllers only in a local sense in the presence of actuator saturation. Thus, it is of paramount importance to develop a saturation control design methodology that yields a nonconservative estimate of the stability domain for closed-loop system. The first part of this research focuses on a numerically tractable formulation of the control synthesis problem for linear systems with actuator amplitude and rate saturation nonlinearity using a linear-matrix-inequality (LMI) framework. Following the recent trend in the actuator saturation control research, we (i) utilize absolute stability theory to ensure closed-loop stability and (ii) minimize a quadratic cost to account for the closed-loop system performance degradation. In order to reduce the inherent conservatism of the absolute stability based saturation control framework, we exploit stability multipliers (of, e.g., weighted circle criterion, Popov criterion, etc.). For the control of linear systems with simultaneous actuator amplitude and rate saturation nonlinearities, by virtue of a rate limiter that is predicated on designing the control amplitude and then computing the control rates, we directly account for rate constraints. Both continuous- and discrete-time systems with actuator saturation are considered. A number of design examples are presented to demonstrate

    This paper presents a new method for identification of system models that are linear in parametric structure, but arbitrarily nonlinear in signal operations. The strategy blends traditional system identification methods with three modeling strategies that are not commonly employed in signal processing: linear-time-invariant-in-parameters models, set-based parameter identification, and evolutionary selection of the model structure. This paper reports recent advances in the theoretical foundation of the methods, then focuses on the operation and performance of the approach, particularly the evolutionary model determination. The method is applied to the modeling of microbial growth by Monod Kinetics.

    2006-03-01

    An LDRD funded approach to development of reduced order models for systems with local nonlinearities is presented. This method is particularly useful for problems of structural dynamics, but has potential application in other fields. The key elements of this approach are (1) employment of eigen modes of a reference linear system, (2) incorporation of basis functions with an appropriate discontinuity at the location of the nonlinearity. Galerkin solution using the above combination of basis functions appears to capture the dynamics of the system with a small basis set. For problems involving small amplitude dynamics, the addition of discontinuous (joint) modes appears to capture the nonlinear mechanics correctly while preserving the modal form of the predictions. For problems involving large amplitude dynamics of realistic joint models (macro-slip), the use of appropriate joint modes along with sufficient basis eigen modes to capture the frequencies of the system greatly enhances convergence, though the modal nature the result is lost. Also observed is that when joint modes are used in conjunction with a small number of elastic eigen modes in problems of macro-slip of realistic joint models, the resulting predictions are very similar to those of the full solution when seen through a low pass filter. This has significance both in terms of greatly reducing the number of degrees of freedom of the problem and in terms of facilitating the use of much larger time steps.

  13. Combined parametric-nonparametric identification of block-oriented systems

    CERN Document Server

    Mzyk, Grzegorz

    2014-01-01

    This book considers a problem of block-oriented nonlinear dynamic system identification in the presence of random disturbances. This class of systems includes various interconnections of linear dynamic blocks and static nonlinear elements, e.g., Hammerstein system, Wiener system, Wiener-Hammerstein ("sandwich") system and additive NARMAX systems with feedback. Interconnecting signals are not accessible for measurement. The combined parametric-nonparametric algorithms, proposed in the book, can be selected dependently on the prior knowledge of the system and signals. Most of them are based on the decomposition of the complex system identification task into simpler local sub-problems by using non-parametric (kernel or orthogonal) regression estimation. In the parametric stage, the generalized least squares or the instrumental variables technique is commonly applied to cope with correlated excitations. Limit properties of the algorithms have been shown analytically and illustrated in simple experiments.

    The post-linac energy collimation system of multi-TeV linear colliders is designed to fulfil an important function of protection of the Beam Delivery System (BDS) against miss-steered beams likely generated by failure modes in the main linac. For the case of the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC), the energy collimators are required to withstand the impact of a full bunch train in case of failure. This is a very challenging task, assuming the nominal CLIC beam parameters at 1.5 TeV beam energy. The increase of the transverse spot size at the collimators using nonlinear magnets is a potential solution to guarantee the survival of the collimators. In this paper we present an alternative nonlinear optics based on a skew sextupole pair for energy collimation. Performance simulation results are also presented.

The design method achieves the desired property: global robust stability. Our contribution is illustrated with the example of a disturbed pendulum.

    Predictive computation of the nonlinear dynamical responses of gap-supported tubes subjected to flow excitation has been the subject of very active research. Nevertheless, there is a need for robust techniques capable of extracting, from the actual vibratory response data, information which is relevant for asserting the components integrity. The dynamical contact/impact (vibro-impact) forces are of paramount significance, as are the tube/support gaps. Following our previous studies in this field using wave-propagation techniques, we apply modal methods in the present paper for extracting such information. The dynamical support forces, as well as the vibratory responses at the support locations, are identified from one or several vibratory response measurements at remote transducers, from which the support gaps can be inferred. As for most inverse problems, the identification results prove quite sensitive to noise and modeling error problems. Therefore, topics discussed in the paper include regularization techniques to mitigate the effects of non-measured noise perturbations. In particular, a method is proposed to improve the identification of contact forces at the supports when the system is excited by an unknown distributed turbulence force field. The important topic of dealing with the imperfect knowledge of the modal parameters used to build the inverted transfer functions is addressed elsewhere. Here, the extensive identifications presented are based on the exact modal parameters and performed on realistic numerical simulations of gap-supported tubes subjected to flow excitation. We can thus confront the identified dynamical support contact forces and vibratory motions at the gap-support with the actual values stemming from the original nonlinear computations, with overall satisfying results.

  4. Adaptation with disturbance attenuation in nonlinear control systems

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Basar, T. [Univ. of Illinois, Urbana, IL (United States)

    1997-12-31

    We present an optimization-based adaptive controller design for nonlinear systems exhibiting parametric as well as functional uncertainty. The approach involves the formulation of an appropriate cost functional that places positive weight on deviations from the achievement of desired objectives (such as tracking of a reference trajectory while the system exhibits good transient performance) and negative weight on the energy of the uncertainty. This cost functional also translates into a disturbance attenuation inequality which quantifies the effect of the presence of uncertainty on the desired objective, which in turn yields an interpretation for the optimizing control as one that optimally attenuates the disturbance, viewed as the collection of unknown parameters and unknown signals entering the system dynamics. In addition to this disturbance attenuation property, the controllers obtained also feature adaptation in the sense that they help with identification of the unknown parameters, even though this has not been set as the primary goal of the design. In spite of this adaptation/identification role, the controllers obtained are not of certainty-equivalent type, which means that the identification and the control phases of the design are not decoupled.

We propose a novel scheme where a linear approximation of the system model is obtained in an operating point; then, a Youla-Kucera (YJBK) parameter specifying the difference between...... the first and a second operating point is identified in closed-loop using system identification methods with open-loop properties. Next, a linear controller is designed for this linearised model, and gain scheduling control can subsequently be achieved by interpolating between each controller...

  8. Tracking Control for Switched Cascade Nonlinear Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Xiaoxiao Dong

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The issue of H∞ output tracking for switched cascade nonlinear systems is discussed in this paper, where not all the linear parts of subsystems are stabilizable. The conditions of the solvability for the issue are given by virtue of the structural characteristics of the systems and the average dwell time method, in which the total activation time for stabilizable subsystems is longer than that for the unstabilizable subsystems. At last, a simulation example is used to demonstrate the validity and advantages of the proposed approach.

    2010-01-01

    Synchronization of chaotic systems, a patently nonlinear phenomenon, has emerged as a highly active interdisciplinary research topic at the interface of physics, biology, applied mathematics and engineering sciences. In this connection, time-delay systems described by delay differential equations have developed as particularly suitable tools for modeling specific dynamical systems. Indeed, time-delay is ubiquitous in many physical systems, for example due to finite switching speeds of amplifiers in electronic circuits, finite lengths of vehicles in traffic flows, finite signal propagation times in biological networks and circuits, and quite generally whenever memory effects are relevant. This monograph presents the basics of chaotic time-delay systems and their synchronization with an emphasis on the effects of time-delay feedback which give rise to new collective dynamics. Special attention is devoted to scalar chaotic/hyperchaotic time-delay systems, and some higher order models, occurring in different bran...

  11. On stability of randomly switched nonlinear systems

    CERN Document Server

    Chatterjee, Debasish

    2007-01-01

    This article is concerned with stability analysis and stabilization of randomly switched nonlinear systems. These systems may be regarded as piecewise deterministic stochastic systems: the discrete switches are triggered by a stochastic process which is independent of the state of the system, and between two consecutive switching instants the dynamics are deterministic. Our results provide sufficient conditions for almost sure global asymptotic stability using Lyapunov-based methods when individual subsystems are stable and a certain ``slow switching'' condition holds. This slow switching condition takes the form of an asymptotic upper bound on the probability mass function of the number of switches that occur between the initial and current time instants. This condition is shown to hold for switching signals coming from the states of finite-dimensional continuous-time Markov chains; our results therefore hold for Markov jump systems in particular. For systems with control inputs we provide explicit control s...

  12. Hybrid fault diagnosis of nonlinear systems using neural parameter estimators.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sobhani-Tehrani, E; Talebi, H A; Khorasani, K

    2014-02-01

    This paper presents a novel integrated hybrid approach for fault diagnosis (FD) of nonlinear systems taking advantage of both the system's mathematical model and the adaptive nonlinear approximation capability of computational intelligence techniques. Unlike most FD techniques, the proposed solution simultaneously accomplishes fault detection, isolation, and identification (FDII) within a unified diagnostic module. At the core of this solution is a bank of adaptive neural parameter estimators (NPEs) associated with a set of single-parameter fault models. The NPEs continuously estimate unknown fault parameters (FPs) that are indicators of faults in the system. Two NPE structures, series-parallel and parallel, are developed with their exclusive set of desirable attributes. The parallel scheme is extremely robust to measurement noise and possesses a simpler, yet more solid, fault isolation logic. In contrast, the series-parallel scheme displays short FD delays and is robust to closed-loop system transients due to changes in control commands. Finally, a fault tolerant observer (FTO) is designed to extend the capability of the two NPEs that originally assumes full state measurements for systems that have only partial state measurements. The proposed FTO is a neural state estimator that can estimate unmeasured states even in the presence of faults. The estimated and the measured states then comprise the inputs to the two proposed FDII schemes. Simulation results for FDII of reaction wheels of a three-axis stabilized satellite in the presence of disturbances and noise demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed FDII solutions under partial state measurements.

    This paper presents chaos synchronization between two different chaotic systems by using a nonlinear controller, in which the nonlinear functions of the system are used as a nonlinear feedback term. The feedback controller is designed on the basis of stability theory, and the area of feedback gain is determined. The artificial simulation results show that this control method is commendably effective and feasible.

  16. Nonlinear control for dual quaternion systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Price, William D.

    The motion of rigid bodies includes three degrees of freedom (DOF) for rotation, generally referred to as roll, pitch and yaw, and 3 DOF for translation, generally described as motion along the x, y and z axis, for a total of 6 DOF. Many complex mechanical systems exhibit this type of motion, with constraints, such as complex humanoid robotic systems, multiple ground vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), multiple spacecraft vehicles, and even quantum mechanical systems. These motions historically have been analyzed independently, with separate control algorithms being developed for rotation and translation. The goal of this research is to study the full 6 DOF of rigid body motion together, developing control algorithms that will affect both rotation and translation simultaneously. This will prove especially beneficial in complex systems in the aerospace and robotics area where translational motion and rotational motion are highly coupled, such as when spacecraft have body fixed thrusters. A novel mathematical system known as dual quaternions provide an efficient method for mathematically modeling rigid body transformations, expressing both rotation and translation. Dual quaternions can be viewed as a representation of the special Euclidean group SE(3). An eight dimensional representation of screw theory (combining dual numbers with traditional quaternions), dual quaternions allow for the development of control techniques for 6 DOF motion simultaneously. In this work variable structure nonlinear control methods are developed for dual quaternion systems. These techniques include use of sliding mode control. In particular, sliding mode methods are developed for use in dual quaternion systems with unknown control direction. This method, referred to as self-reconfigurable control, is based on the creation of multiple equilibrium surfaces for the system in the extended state space. Also in this work, the control problem for a class of driftless nonlinear systems is

    Engineering quantum systems offers great opportunities both technologically and scientifically for communication, computation, and simulation. The construction and operation of large scale quantum information devices presents a grand challenge and a major issue is the effective control of coherent dynamics. This is often in the presence of decoherence which further complicates the task of determining the behaviour of the system. Here, we show how to determine open system Markovian dynamics of a quantum system with restricted initialisation and partial output state information.

    Full Text Available Prior knowledge can be introduced into system identification problems in terms of constraints on the parameter space, or regularizing penalty functions in a prediction error criterion. The contribution of this work is mainly an extension of the well known FPE (Final Production Error statistic to the case when the system identification problem is constrained and contains a regularization penalty. The FPECR statistic (Final Production Error with Constraints and Regularization is of potential interest as a criterion for selection of both regularization parameters and structural parameters such as order.

    2006-01-01

    A new nonlinear variable structure excitation controller is proposed. Its design combines the differential geometry theory and the variable structure controlling theory. The mathematical model in the form of "an affine nonlinear system" is set up for the control of a large-scale power system. The static and dynamic performances of the nonlinear variable structure controller are simulated. The response of system with the controller proposed is compared to that of the nonlinear optimal controller when the system is subjected to a variety of disturbances. Simulation results show that the nonlinear variable structure excitation controller gives more satisfactorily static and dynamic performance and better robustness.

    This study experimentally investigates the relationships between central cardiovascular variables and oxygen uptake based on nonlinear analysis and modeling. Ten healthy subjects were studied using cycle-ergometry exercise tests with constant workloads ranging from 25 Watt to 125 Watt. Breath by breath gas exchange, heart rate, cardiac output, stroke volume and blood pressure were measured at each stage. The modeling results proved that the nonlinear modeling method (Support Vector Regression) outperforms traditional regression method (reducing Estimation Error between 59% and 80%, reducing Testing Error between 53% and 72%) and is the ideal approach in the modeling of physiological data, especially with small training data set.

    2015-01-01

    An adaptive fuzzy output feedback controller is proposed for a class of uncertain MIMO nonlinear systems with unknown input nonlinearities. The input nonlinearities can be backlash-like hysteresis or dead-zone. Besides, the gains of unknown input nonlinearities are unknown nonlinear functions. Based on universal approximation theorem, the unknown nonlinear functions are approximated by fuzzy systems. The proposed method does not need the availability of the states and an observer based on strictly positive real (SPR) theory is designed to estimate the states. An adaptive robust structure is used to cope with fuzzy approximation error and external disturbances. The semi-global asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system is guaranteed via Lyapunov approach. The applicability of the proposed method is also shown via simulations.

  9. Nonlinear modelling of a SOFC stack by improved neural networks identification

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is a nonlinear system that is hard to model by conventional methods. So far, most existing models are based on conversion laws, which are too complicated to be applied to design a control system. To facilitate a valid control strategy design, this paper tries to avoid the internal complexities and presents a modelling study of SOFC performance by using a radial basis function (RBF) neural network based on a genetic algorithm (GA). During the process of modelling, the GA aims to optimize the parameters of RBF neural networks and the optimum values are regarded as the initial values of the RBF neural network parameters. The validity and accuracy of modelling are tested by simulations, whose results reveal that it is feasible to establish the model of SOFC stack by using RBF neural networks identification based on the GA. Furthermore, it is possible to design an online controller of a SOFC stack based on this GA-RBF neural network identification model.

The existence of solutions will be obtained using a combination among the method of truncation, a priori bounded and Krasnosel'skii well-known result on fixed point indices in cones. The main contribution here is that we provide a treatment to the above system considering differential operators with nonlinear coefficients. Observe that these coefficients may not necessarily be bounded from below by a positive bound which is independent of u and v.

    As the operation of large systems becomes ever more dependent on extensive automation, the need for an effective solution to the problem of design and validation of the underlying software becomes more critical. Large systems possesses much detailed structure, typically hierarchical, and they are hybrid. Information processing at the top of the hierarchy is by means of formal logic and sentences; on the bottom it is by means of simple scalar differential equations and functions of time; and in the middle it is by an interacting mix of nonlinear multi-axis differential equations and automata, and functions of time and discrete events. The lecture will address the overall problem as it relates to flight vehicle management, describe the middle level, and offer a design approach that is based on Differential Geometry and Discrete Event Dynamic Systems Theory.

  16. Nonlinear Mixing in Optical Multicarrier Systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hameed, Mahmood Abdul

    Although optical fiber has a vast spectral bandwidth, efficient use of this bandwidth is still important in order to meet the ever increased capacity demand of optical networks. In addition to wavelength division multiplexing, it is possible to partition multiple low-rate subcarriers into each high speed wavelength channel. Multicarrier systems not only ensure efficient use of optical and electrical components, but also tolerate transmission impairments. The purpose of this research is to understand the impact of mixing among subcarriers in Radio-Over-Fiber (RoF) and high speed optical transmission systems, and experimentally demonstrate techniques to minimize this impact. We also analyze impact of clipping and quantization on multicarrier signals and compare bandwidth efficiency of two popular multiplexing techniques, namely, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and Nyquist modulation. For an OFDM-RoF system, we present a novel technique that minimizes the RF domain signal-signal beat interference (SSBI), relaxes the phase noise limit on the RF carrier, realizes the full potential of optical heterodyne-based RF carrier generation, and increases the performance-to-cost ratio of RoF systems. We demonstrate a RoF network that shares the same RF carrier for both downlink and uplink, avoiding the need of an additional RF oscillator in the customer unit. For multi-carrier optical transmission, we first experimentally compare performance degradations of coherent optical OFDM and single-carrier Nyquist pulse modulated systems in a nonlinear environment. We then experimentally evaluate SSBI compensation techniques in the presence of semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) induced nonlinearities for a multicarrier optical system with direct detection. We show that SSBI contamination can be significantly reduced from the data signal when the carrier-to-signal power ratio is sufficiently low.

    2004-01-01

    An extended nonlinear state predictor (ENSP) for a class of nonlinear systems with input time delay is proposed. Based on the extended Kalman filter (EKF), the ENSP first estimates the current states according to the previous estimations and estimation errors, next calculates the future state values via the system model, and then adjusts the values based on the current errors. After a state predictive algorithm for a class of linear systems is presented, it is extended to a class of nonlinear time delay systems and the detailed ENSP algorithm is further proposed. Finally, computer simulations with the nonlinear example are presented, which demonstrates that the proposed ENSP can effectively and accurately predict the future states for a class of nonlinear time-delay systems no matter whether the state variables change quickly or slowly.

    We characterize both nonlinear and high order linear responses of fiber-optic and optoelectronic components using spread spectrum temperature cycling methods. This Thermal Signature Identification System (TheSIS) provides much more detail than conventional narrowband or quasi-static temperature profiling methods. This detail allows us to match components more thoroughly, detect subtle reversible shifts in performance, and investigate the cause of instabilities or irreversible changes. In particular, we create parameterized models of athermal fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs), delay line interferometers (DLIs), and distributed feedback (DFB) lasers, then subject the alternative models to selection via the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC). Detailed pairing of components, e.g. FBGs, is accomplished by means of weighted distance metrics or norms, rather than on the basis of a single parameter, such as center wavelength.

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background We consider the problem of parameter estimation (model calibration in nonlinear dynamic models of biological systems. Due to the frequent ill-conditioning and multi-modality of many of these problems, traditional local methods usually fail (unless initialized with very good guesses of the parameter vector. In order to surmount these difficulties, global optimization (GO methods have been suggested as robust alternatives. Currently, deterministic GO methods can not solve problems of realistic size within this class in reasonable computation times. In contrast, certain types of stochastic GO methods have shown promising results, although the computational cost remains large. Rodriguez-Fernandez and coworkers have presented hybrid stochastic-deterministic GO methods which could reduce computation time by one order of magnitude while guaranteeing robustness. Our goal here was to further reduce the computational effort without loosing robustness. Results We have developed a new procedure based on the scatter search methodology for nonlinear optimization of dynamic models of arbitrary (or even unknown structure (i.e. black-box models. In this contribution, we describe and apply this novel metaheuristic, inspired by recent developments in the field of operations research, to a set of complex identification problems and we make a critical comparison with respect to the previous (above mentioned successful methods. Conclusion Robust and efficient methods for parameter estimation are of key importance in systems biology and related areas. The new metaheuristic presented in this paper aims to ensure the proper solution of these problems by adopting a global optimization approach, while keeping the computational effort under reasonable values. This new metaheuristic was applied to a set of three challenging parameter estimation problems of nonlinear dynamic biological systems, outperforming very significantly all the methods previously

    The impedance-based structural health monitoring technique, which utilizes electromechanical coupling properties of piezoelectric materials, has shown feasibility for use in a variety of structural health monitoring applications. Relying on high frequency local excitations (typically > 30 kHz), this technique is very sensitive to minor changes in structural integrity in the near field of piezoelectric sensors. Several damage sensitive features have been identified and used coupled with the impedance methods. Most of these methods are, however, limited to linearity assumptions of a structure. This paper presents the use of experimentally identified nonlinear features, combined with impedance methods, for structural health monitoring. Their applicability to damage detection in various frequency ranges is demonstrated using actual impedance signals measured from a portal frame structure. The performance of the nonlinear feature is compared with those of conventional impedance methods. This paper reinforces the utility of nonlinear features in structural health monitoring and suggests that their varying sensitivity in different frequency ranges may be leveraged for certain applications.

  4. Constrained tracking control for nonlinear systems.

    Khani, Fatemeh; Haeri, Mohammad

    2017-09-01

    This paper proposes a tracking control strategy for nonlinear systems without needing a prior knowledge of the reference trajectory. The proposed method consists of a set of local controllers with appropriate overlaps in their stability regions and an on-line switching strategy which implements these controllers and uses some augmented intermediate controllers to ensure steering the system states to the desired set points without needing to redesign the controller for each value of set point changes. The proposed approach provides smooth transient responses despite switching among the local controllers. It should be mentioned that the stability regions of the proposed controllers could be estimated off-line for a range of set-point changes. The efficiencies of the proposed algorithm are illustrated via two example simulations. Copyright © 2017 ISA. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  5. Nonlinear system modeling based on experimental data

    The canonical variate analysis technique is used in this investigation, along with a data transformation algorithm, to identify a system in a transform space. The transformation algorithm involves the preprocessing of measured excitation/response data with a zero-memory-nonlinear transform, specifically, the Rosenblatt transform. This transform approximately maps the measured excitation and response data from its own space into the space of uncorrelated, standard normal random variates. Following this transform, it is appropriate to model the excitation/response relation as linear since Gaussian inputs excite Gaussian responses in linear structures. The linear model is identified in the transform space using the canonical variate analysis approach, and system responses in the original space are predicted using inverse Rosenblatt transformation. An example is presented.

    Full Text Available To improve the feasibility of system identification in the prediction of ship manoeuvrability, several measures are presented to deal with the parameter identifiability in the parametric modeling of ship manoeuvring motion based on system identification. Drift of nonlinear hydrodynamic coefficients is explained from the point of view of regression analysis. To diminish the multicollinearity in a complicated manoeuvring model, difference method and additional signal method are employed to reconstruct the samples. Moreover, the structure of manoeuvring model is simplified based on correlation analysis. Manoeuvring simulation is performed to demonstrate the validity of the measures proposed.

  7. Prediction and simulation errors in parameter estimation for nonlinear systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Aguirre, Luis A.; Barbosa, Bruno H. G.; Braga, Antônio P.

    2010-11-01

    This article compares the pros and cons of using prediction error and simulation error to define cost functions for parameter estimation in the context of nonlinear system identification. To avoid being influenced by estimators of the least squares family (e.g. prediction error methods), and in order to be able to solve non-convex optimisation problems (e.g. minimisation of some norm of the free-run simulation error), evolutionary algorithms were used. Simulated examples which include polynomial, rational and neural network models are discussed. Our results—obtained using different model classes—show that, in general the use of simulation error is preferable to prediction error. An interesting exception to this rule seems to be the equation error case when the model structure includes the true model. In the case of error-in-variables, although parameter estimation is biased in both cases, the algorithm based on simulation error is more robust.

    The system state trajectory, Poincaré maps, largest Lyapunov exponents, frequency spectra and bifurcation diagrams were used to investigate the non-linear dynamic behaviors of a rotor-bearing-seal coupled system and to analyze the influence of the seal and bearing on the nonlinear characteristics of the rotor system. Various nonlinear phenomena in the rotor-bearing-seal system, such as periodic motion, double-periodicmotion, multi-periodic motion and quasi-periodic motion were investigated. The results may contribute to a further understanding of the non-linear dynamics of the rotor-bearing-seal coupled system.

    The well known Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) model gives an effective method to combine some simple local systems with their linguistic description to represent complex nonlinear dynamic systems. By using the T-S method, a class of local nonlinear systems having nice dynamic properties can be employed to represent some global complex nonlinear systems. This paper proposes to study the periodicity of a class of global nonlinear fuzzy systems with delays by using T-S method. Conditions for guaranteeing periodicity are derived. Examples are employed to illustrate the theory.

    The problem of identifying linear dynamical systems is studied by considering structural and deterministic properties of linear systems that have an impact on stochastic identification algorithms. In particular considered is parametrization of linear systems so that there is a unique solution and all systems in appropriate class can be represented. It is assumed that a parametrization of system matrices has been established from a priori knowledge of the system, and the question is considered of when the unknown parameters of this system can be identified from input/output observations. It is assumed that the transfer function can be asymptotically identified, and the conditions are derived for the local, global and partial identifiability of the parametrization. Then it is shown that, with the right formulation, identifiability in the presence of feedback can be treated in the same way. Similarly the identifiability of parametrizations of systems driven by unobserved white noise is considered using the results from the theory of spectral factorization.

    2016-01-01

    Recent progress on nonlinear properties of parity-time ($\\cal PT$-) symmetric systems is comprehensively reviewed in this article. $\\cal PT$ symmetry started out in non-Hermitian quantum mechanics, where complex potentials obeying $\\cal PT$ symmetry could exhibit all-real spectra. This concept later spread out to optics, Bose-Einstein condensates, electronic circuits, and many other physical fields, where a judicious balancing of gain and loss constitutes a $\\cal PT$-symmetric system. The natural inclusion of nonlinearity into these $\\cal PT$ systems then gave rise to a wide array of new phenomena which have no counterparts in traditional dissipative systems. Examples include the existence of continuous families of nonlinear modes and integrals of motion, stabilization of nonlinear modes above $\\cal PT$-symmetry phase transition, symmetry breaking of nonlinear modes, distinctive soliton dynamics, and many others. In this article, nonlinear $\\cal PT$-symmetric systems arising from various physical disciplines ...

  15. A Design of Generalized Predictive Control Systems Using a Memory-Based System Identification

    Science.gov (United States)

    Takao, Kenji; Yamamoto, Toru; Hinamoto, Takao

    In this paper, a new system identification scheme is proposed based on a memory-based modeling (MBM) method. According to the MBM method, some local models are automatically generated using input/output data pairs of the controlled object stored in the data-base. Especially, it is well known that the MBM method works suitably on nonlinear systems. Therefore, even if the nonlinearities are contained in the controlled object, accuracy identification can be performed by the proposed method. Moreover, since the parameter estimates are easily applied to many existing controllers, the good control result can be obtained for nonlinear systems. In this paper, the generalized predictive control (GPC) is used as the one of existing controllers, because the GPC is designed based on multi-step prediction, and is effective for systems with large, ambiguous and/or time-variant time-delays. Finally, the effectiveness of the newly proposed control scheme is numerically evaluated on some simulation examples.

    A nonlinear variable structure stabilizer is proposed in this paper. Design of this stabilizer involves the nonlinear transformation technique, the variable structure control technique and the linear system theory. Performance of the proposed nonlinear variable structure controller in a single machine connected to an infinite bus power and a multi-machine system with multi-mode oscillations is simulated. The responses of the system with the proposed stabilizer are compared with those obtained with some other kinds of stabilizers when the system is subjected to a variety of disturbances. Simulation results show that the nonlinear variable structure stabilizer gives satisfactory dynamic performance and good robustness.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2006-01-01

    This paper deals with the robust stabilization and passivity of general nonlinear systems with structural uncertainty. By using Lyapunov function, it verifies that under some conditions the robust passivity implies the zero-state detectability, Furthermore, it also implies the robust stabilization for such nonlinear systems. We then establish a stabilization method for the nonlinear systems with structural uncertainty. The smooth state feedback law can be constructed with the solution of an equation. Finally, it is worth noting that the main contribution of the paper establishes the relation between robust passivity and feedback stabilization for the general nonlinear systems with structural uncertainty. The simulation shows the effectiveness of the method.

    1998-01-01

    A method is proposed and studied whereby the system identification cycle consisting of experiment design and data analysis can be repeatedly implemented aboard a test aircraft in real time. This adaptive in-flight system identification scheme has many advantages, including increased flight test efficiency, adaptability to dynamic characteristics that are imperfectly known a priori, in-flight improvement of data quality through iterative input design, and immediate feedback of the quality of flight test results. The technique uses equation error in the frequency domain with a recursive Fourier transform for the real time data analysis, and simple design methods employing square wave input forms to design the test inputs in flight. Simulation examples are used to demonstrate that the technique produces increasingly accurate model parameter estimates resulting from sequentially designed and implemented flight test maneuvers. The method has reasonable computational requirements, and could be implemented aboard an aircraft in real time.

    2000-01-01

    System identification plays an important role in advanced control systems for jet engines, in which controls are performed adaptively using data from the actual engine and the identified engine. An identification technique for jet engine using the Constant Gain Extended Kalman Filter (CGEKF) is described. The filter is constructed for a two-spool turbofan engine. The CGEKF filter developed here can recognize parameter change in engine components and estimate unmeasurable variables over whole flight conditions. These capabilities are useful for an advanced Full Authority Digital Electric Control (FADEC). Effects of measurement noise and bias, effects of operating point and unpredicted performance change are discussed. Some experimental results using the actual engine are shown to evaluate the effectiveness of CGEKF filter.

    2007-01-01

    Speaker identification is a powerful, non-invasive and in-expensive biometric technique. The recognition accuracy, however, deteriorates when noise levels affect a specific band of frequency. In this paper, we present a sub-band based speaker identification that intends to improve the live testing performance. Each frequency sub-band is processed and classified independently. We also compare the linear and non-linear merging techniques for the sub-bands recognizer. Support vector machines and Gaussian Mixture models are the non-linear merging techniques that are investigated. Results showed that the sub-band based method used with linear merging techniques enormously improved the performance of the speaker identification over the performance of wide-band recognizers when tested live. A live testing improvement of 9.78% was achieved

    This project consists of experimental investigations of heat transport, pattern formation, and bifurcation phenomena in non-linear non-equilibrium fluid-mechanical systems. These issues are studies in Rayleigh-B\\'enard convection, using both pure and multicomponent fluids. They are of fundamental scientific interest, but also play an important role in engineering, materials science, ecology, meteorology, geophysics, and astrophysics. For instance, various forms of convection are important in such diverse phenomena as crystal growth from a melt with or without impurities, energy production in solar ponds, flow in the earth's mantle and outer core, geo-thermal stratifications, and various oceanographic and atmospheric phenomena. Our work utilizes computer-enhanced shadowgraph imaging of flow patterns, sophisticated digital image analysis, and high-resolution heat transport measurements.

    An approximation and convergence theory for the identification of nonlinear damping in abstract wave equations is developed. It is assumed that the unknown dissipation mechanism to be identified can be described by a maximal monotone operator acting on the generalized velocity. The stiffness is assumed to be linear and symmetric. Functional analytic techniques are used to establish that solutions to a sequence of finite dimensional (Galerkin) approximating identification problems in some sense approximate a solution to the original infinite dimensional inverse problem.

    Full Text Available This paper treats some problems related to nonlinear systems identification. A stability analysis neural network model for identifying nonlinear dynamic systems is presented. A constrained adaptive stable backpropagation updating law is presented and used in the proposed identification approach. The proposed backpropagation training algorithm is modified to obtain an adaptive learning rate guarantying convergence stability. The proposed learning rule is the backpropagation algorithm under the condition that the learning rate belongs to a specified range defining the stability domain. Satisfying such condition, unstable phenomena during the learning process are avoided. A Lyapunov analysis leads to the computation of the expression of a convenient adaptive learning rate verifying the convergence stability criteria. Finally, the elaborated training algorithm is applied in several simulations. The results confirm the effectiveness of the CSBP algorithm.

    2009-01-01

    This paper studies existence of at least three positive doubly periodic solutions of a coupled nonlinear telegraph system with doubly periodic boundary conditions. First, by using the Green function and maximum principle, existence of solutions of a nonlinear telegraph system is equivalent to existence of fixed points of an operator. By imposing growth conditions on the nonlinearities, existence of at least three fixed points in cone is obtained by using the Leggett-Williams fixed point theorem to cones in ordered Banach spaces. In other words, there exist at least three positive doubly periodic solutions of nonlinear telegraph system.

    2008-04-01

    Full Text Available This paper treats the identification of nonlinear systems that consist of a cascade of a linear channel and a nonlinearity, such as the well-known Wiener and Hammerstein systems. In particular, we follow a supervised identification approach that simultaneously identifies both parts of the nonlinear system. Given the correct restrictions on the identification problem, we show how kernel canonical correlation analysis (KCCA emerges as the logical solution to this problem. We then extend the proposed identification algorithm to an adaptive version allowing to deal with time-varying systems. In order to avoid overfitting problems, we discuss and compare three possible regularization techniques for both the batch and the adaptive versions of the proposed algorithm. Simulations are included to demonstrate the effectiveness of the presented algorithm.

  12. Sensing and Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics of Slider with Clearance in Sub-5 Nanometer Regime

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper provides an overview of the problems pertaining to the sensing and identification of nonlinear dynamics of slider with clearance in sub-5 nanometer regime. This problem is complex in nature because the nonlinear dynamics of slider in sub-5 nanometer clearance regime involves different sources of nonlinear, nonstationary, and uncertainty characteristics. For example, the involved forces such as air-bearing force, intermolecular force, and contact forces are all nonlinear. The complex interface interaction with mobile lubricant makes the slider response be nonstationary. Furthermore, the interfacial parameters are available only by assumptions in the sense of statistics. Most of the reported studies either focused on physics-based simulations by using assumed interfacial parameters or focused on experimental characterization. The issues of the sensing and identification of the nonlinear dynamic properties of slider in nanometer clearance regime will be discussed with an aim at illustrating the promising approaches for improving the correlation between test data and physics-based simulations.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Multisensory processes are vital in the perception of our environment. In the evaluation of foodstuff, redundant sensory inputs not only assist the identification of edible and nutritious substances, but also help avoiding the ingestion of possibly hazardous substances. While it is known that the non-chemical senses interact already at early processing levels, it remains unclear whether the visual and olfactory senses exhibit comparable interaction effects. To address this question, we tested whether the perception of congruent bimodal visual-olfactory objects is facilitated compared to unimodal stimulation. We measured response times (RT and accuracy during speeded object identification. The onset of the visual and olfactory constituents in bimodal trials was physically aligned in the first and perceptually aligned in the second experiment. We tested whether the data favored coactivation or parallel processing consistent with race models. A redundant-signals effect was observed for perceptually aligned redundant stimuli only, i.e. bimodal stimuli were identified faster than either of the unimodal components. Analysis of the RT distributions and accuracy data revealed that these observations could be explained by a race model. More specifically, visual and olfactory channels appeared to be operating in a parallel, positively dependent manner. While these results suggest the absence of early sensory interactions, future studies are needed to substantiate this interpretation.

    In a visible light communication (VLC) system, the light emitting diode (LED) is nonlinear for large signals, which limits the trans⁃mission power or equivalently the coverage of the VLC system. When the input signal amplitude is large, the nonlinear distortion creates harmonic and intermodulation distortion, which degrades the transmission error vector magnitude (EVM). To evaluate the impact of nonlinearity on system performance, the signal to noise and distortion ratio (SNDR) is applied, defined as the linear sig⁃nal power over the thermal noise plus the front end nonlinear distortion. At a given noise level, the optimal system performance can be achieved by maximizing the SNDR, which results in high transmission rate or long transmission range for the VLC system. In this paper, we provide theoretical analysis on the optimization of SNDR with a nonlinear Hammerstein model of LED. Simula⁃tion results and lab experiments validate the theoretical analysis.

    The method of convex optimization is used as a tool for model reduction of a class of nonlinear systems in the presence of disturbances. It is shown that under some conditions the nonlinear disturbed system can be approximated by a reduced order nonlinear system with similar disturbance-output properties to the original plant. The proposed model reduction strategy preserves the nonlinearity and the input disturbance nature of the model. It guarantees a sufficiently small error between the outputs of the original and the reduced-order systems, and also maintains the properties of input-to-state stability. The matrices of the reduced order system are given in terms of a set of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). The paper concludes with a demonstration of the proposed approach on model reduction of a nonlinear electronic circuit with additive disturbances.

    2010-03-29

    We derive an analytical formula to estimate the variance of nonlinear phase noise caused by the interaction of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) noise with fiber nonlinearity such as self-phase modulation (SPM), cross-phase modulation (XPM), and four-wave mixing (FWM) in coherent orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The analytical results agree very well with numerical simulations, enabling the study of the nonlinear penalties in long-haul coherent OFDM systems without extensive numerical simulation. Our results show that the nonlinear phase noise induced by FWM is significantly larger than that induced by SPM and XPM, which is in contrast to traditional WDM systems where ASE-FWM interaction is negligible in quasi-linear systems. We also found that fiber chromatic dispersion can reduce the nonlinear phase noise. The variance of the total phase noise increases linearly with the bit rate, and does not depend significantly on the number of subcarriers for systems with moderate fiber chromatic dispersion.

    When neural network is applied to identification problem with complex structure, structure of the network becomes larger in its scale and more complex as its input variables increase, because of necessity on effect of high order in the input variable within the network. In this study, a neural network with self-selection ability of the input variables is proposed. This network can remove the neuron related to the input variables from inner portion of the network according to the prediction error estimation standard and construct a neural network only by means of the neuron related to useful input variables, even when it contains unnecessary variables for its input variable. In this paper, by comparing with identification results obtained by conventional neural network or improved GMDH method, its effectiveness could be elucidated. And, it applied to short-term forecasting problem of air pollution concentration, to compare its estimation accuracy with those of other prediction models. 18 refs., 10 figs., 3 tabs.

    We consider the problem of state estimation for nonlinear time-varying systems whose nonlinearities satisfy an incremental quadratic inequality. These observer results unifies earlier results in the literature; and extend it to some additional classes of nonlinearities. Observers are presented which guarantee that the state estimation error exponentially converges to zero. Observer design involves solving linear matrix inequalities for the observer gain matrices. Results are illustrated by application to a simple model of an underwater.

    A theoretical model of a humidifier of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell systems is developed and analyzed first in this paper. The model shows that there exists a strong nonlinearity in the system. Then, the system is identified using a wavelet networks method. To avoid the curse-of-dimensionality problem, a class of wavelet networks proposed by Billings is employed. The experimental data acquired from the test bench are used for identification. The one-step-ahead predictions and the five-step-ahead predictions are compared with the real measurements, respectively. It shows that the identified model can effectively describe the real system.

    2016-10-01

    This paper is concerned with the networked control of a class of uncertain nonlinear systems. In this way, Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy modelling is used to extend the previously proposed variable selective control (VSC) methodology to nonlinear systems. This extension is based upon the decomposition of the nonlinear system to a set of fuzzy-blended locally linearised subsystems and further application of the VSC methodology to each subsystem. To increase the applicability of the T-S approach for uncertain nonlinear networked control systems, this study considers the asynchronous premise variables in the plant and the controller, and then introduces a robust stability analysis and control synthesis. The resulting optimal switching-fuzzy controller provides a minimum guaranteed cost on an H2 performance index. Simulation studies on three nonlinear benchmark problems demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    In this paper,we investigate the behaviour of the geometric phase of a more generalized nonlinear system composed of an effective two-level system interacting with a single-mode quantized cavity field.Both the field nonlinearity and the atom-field coupling nonlinearity are considered.We find that the geometric phase depends on whether the index k is an odd number or an even number in the resonant case.In addition,we also find that the geometric phase may be easily observed when the field nonlinearity is not considered.The fractional statistical phenomenon appears in this system if the strong nonlinear atom-field coupling is considered.We have also investigated the geometric phase of an effective two-level system interacting with a two-mode quantized cavity field.

    2008-01-01

    An artificial immune system algorithm is introduced in which nonlinear dynamic models are evolved to fit time series of interacting biomolecules. This grammar-based machine learning method learns the structure and parameters of the underlying dynamic model. In silico immunogenetic mechanisms for the generation of model-structure diversity are implemented with the aid of a grammar, which also enforces semantic constraints of the evolved models. The grammar acts as a DNA repair polymerase that can identify recombination and hypermutation signals in the antibody (model) genome. These signals contain information interpretable by the grammar to maintain model context. Grammatical Immune System Evolution (GISE) is applied to a nonlinear system identification problem in which a generalized (nonlinear) dynamic Bayesian model is evolved to fit biologically motivated artificial time-series data. From experimental data, we use GISE to infer an improved kinetic model for the oxidative metabolism of 17beta-estradiol (E(2)), the parent hormone of the estrogen metabolism pathway.

    1999-01-01

    This paper addresses the problem of stabilization of a class of internally passive non-linear time-invariant dynamic systems. A class of non-linear marginally strictly passive (MSP) systems is defined, which is less restrictive than input-strictly passive systems. It is shown that the interconnection of a non-linear passive system and a non-linear MSP system is globally asymptotically stable. The result generalizes and weakens the conditions of the passivity theorem, which requires one of the systems to be input-strictly passive. In the case of linear time-invariant systems, it is shown that the MSP property is equivalent to the marginally strictly positive real (MSPR) property, which is much simpler to check.

  2. Identification of a Non-Linear Landing Gear Model Using Nature-Inspired Optimization

    Felipe A.C. Viana

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available This work deals with the application of a nature-inspired optimization technique to solve an inverse problem represented by the identification of an aircraft landing gear model. The model is described in terms of the landing gear geometry, internal volumes and areas, shock absorber travel, tire type, and gas and oil characteristics of the shock absorber. The solution to this inverse problem can be obtained by using classical gradient-based optimization methods. However, this is a difficult task due to the existence of local minima in the design space and the requirement of an initial guess. These aspects have motivated the authors to explore a nature-inspired approach using a method known as LifeCycle Model. In the present formulation two nature-based methods, namely the Genetic Algorithms and the Particle Swarm Optimization were used. An optimization problem is formulated in which the objective function represents the difference between the measured characteristics of the system and its model counterpart. The polytropic coefficient of the gas and the damping parameter of the shock absorber are assumed as being unknown: they are considered as design variables. As an illustration, experimental drop test data, obtained under zero horizontal speed, were used in the non-linear landing gear model updating of a small aircraft.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Present land vehicle navigation relies mostly on the Global Positioning System (GPS that may be interrupted or deteriorated in urban areas. In order to obtain continuous positioning services in all environments, GPS can be integrated with inertial sensors and vehicle odometer using Kalman filtering (KF. For car navigation, low-cost positioning solutions based on MEMS-based inertial sensors are utilized. To further reduce the cost, a reduced inertial sensor system (RISS consisting of only one gyroscope and speed measurement (obtained from the car odometer is integrated with GPS. The MEMS-based gyroscope measurement deteriorates over time due to different errors like the bias drift. These errors may lead to large azimuth errors and mitigating the azimuth errors requires robust modeling of both linear and nonlinear effects. Therefore, this paper presents a solution based on Parallel Cascade Identification (PCI module that models the azimuth errors and is augmented to KF. The proposed augmented KF-PCI method can handle both linear and nonlinear system errors as the linear parts of the errors are modeled inside the KF and the nonlinear and residual parts of the azimuth errors are modeled by PCI. The performance of this method is examined using road test experiments in a land vehicle.

    2014-03-01

    This paper presents the design of a complex-valued differential neural network identifier for uncertain nonlinear systems defined in the complex domain. This design includes the construction of an adaptive algorithm to adjust the parameters included in the identifier. The algorithm is obtained based on a special class of controlled Lyapunov functions. The quality of the identification process is characterized using the practical stability framework. Indeed, the region where the identification error converges is derived by the same Lyapunov method. This zone is defined by the power of uncertainties and perturbations affecting the complex-valued uncertain dynamics. Moreover, this convergence zone is reduced to its lowest possible value using ideas related to the so-called ellipsoid methodology. Two simple but informative numerical examples are developed to show how the identifier proposed in this paper can be used to approximate uncertain nonlinear systems valued in the complex domain.

    The efficient characterization of nonlinear systems is an important goal of vibration and model testing. The authors build a nonlinear system model based on the acceleration time series response of a single input, multiple output system. A series of local linear models are used as a template to train artificial neutral networks (ANNs). The trained ANNs map measured time series responses into states of a nonlinear system. Another NN propagates response states in time, and a third ANN inverts the original map, transforming states into acceleration predictions in the measurement domain. The technique is illustrated using a nonlinear oscillator, in which quadratic and cubic stiffness terms play a major part in the system`s response. Reasonable maps are obtained for the states, and accurate, long-term response predictions are made for data outside the training data set.

    We present abstraction techniques that transform a given non-linear dynamical system into a linear system or an algebraic system described by polynomials of bounded degree, such that, invariant properties of the resulting abstraction can be used to infer invariants for the original system. The abstraction techniques rely on a change-of-basis transformation that associates each state variable of the abstract system with a function involving the state variables of the original system. We present conditions under which a given change of basis transformation for a non-linear system can define an abstraction. Furthermore, the techniques developed here apply to continuous systems defined by Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), discrete systems defined by transition systems and hybrid systems that combine continuous as well as discrete subsystems. The techniques presented here allow us to discover, given a non-linear system, if a change of bases transformation involving degree-bounded polynomials yielding an alge...

    Yu, Minli; Hahn, Eric J.; Liu, Jike; Lu, Zhongrong

    2016-11-01

    This paper introduced a modal parameter based identification procedure to identify the equivalent system of structures under harmonic excitations. The developed identification technique assumed non-proportional hysteretic damping in the equivalent system, which would be applicable in identifying more general structures. By introducing quasi-modal parameter, modal analysis equation was decoupled under physical coordinate; hence, the modal parameters of each vibration mode are identified independently. Double iteration algorithm was developed to solve the derived non-linear identification equation with complex unknowns. The developed identification procedure was applied to identify the equivalent system of a numerical model in order to evaluate the feasibility of the technique in practice. The identification procedure was also applied to identify an experimental mass and bar rig for validation purpose. Identification results showed that the identification procedure could identify accurately and robustly the equivalent system with non-proportional hysteretic damping assumption; hence, it is likely to be applicable in the field.

    Decentralized control strategies for nonlinear systems are achieved via feedback linearization techniques. New results on optimization and parameter robustness of non-linear systems are also developed. In addition, parametric uncertainty in large-scale systems is handled by sensitivity analysis and optimal control methods in a completely decentralized framework. This idea is applied to alleviate uncertainty in friction parameters for the gimbal joints on Space Station Freedom.

Then we estimate upper bounds of impulse interval and time-varying delays for asymptotically stable control. Finally a numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the method.

    infinite-dimensional problem without the assumption of small time delay. This dimensional reduction is illustrated in this paper with the delay versions of the Duffing and van der Pol equations. For both nonlinear delay equations, transcendental characteristic equations of linearized stability are examined through Hopf bifurcation. The infinite-dimensional nonlinear solutions of the delay equations are decomposed into stable and centre subspaces, whose respective dimensions are determined by the linearized stability of the transcendental equations. Linear semigroups, infinitesimal generators, and their adjoint forms with bilinear pairings are the additional candidates for the infinite-dimensional reduction.

    2009-01-01

    In this paper, a robust adaptive fuzzy dynamic surface control for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems is proposed. A novel adaptive fuzzy dynamic surface model is built to approximate the uncertain nonlinear functions by only one fuzzy logic system. The approximation capability of this model is proved and the model is implemented to solve the problem that too many approximators are used in the controller design of uncertain nonlinear systems. The shortage of "explosion of complexity" in backstepping design procedure is overcome by using the proposed dynamic surface control method. It is proved by constructing appropriate Lyapunov candidates that all signals of closed-loop systems are semi-globaily uniformly ultimate bounded. Also, this novel controller stabilizes the states of uncertain nonlinear systems faster than the adaptive sliding mode controller (SMC). Two simulation examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the control approach proposed in this paper.

    Modern flight control research has improved spacecraft survivability as its goal. To this end we need to have a failure detection system on board. In case the spacecraft is performing imperfectly, reconfiguration of control is needed. For that purpose we need to have parameter identification of spacecraft dynamics. Parameter identification of a system is called system identification. We treat the system as a black box which receives some inputs that lead to some outputs. The question is: what kind of parameters for a particular black box can correlate the observed inputs and outputs? Can these parameters help us to predict the outputs for a new given set of inputs? This is the basic problem of system identification. The X33 was supposed to have the onboard capability of evaluating the current performance and if needed to take the corrective measures to adapt to desired performance. The X33 is comprised of both rocket and aircraft vehicle design characteristics and requires, in general, analytical methods for evaluating its flight performance. Its flight consists of four phases: ascent, transition, entry and TAEM (Terminal Area Energy Management). It spends about 200 seconds in ascent phase, reaching an altitude of about 180,000 feet and a speed of about 10 to 15 Mach. During the transition phase which lasts only about 30 seconds, its altitude may increase to about 190,000 feet but its speed is reduced to about 9 Mach. At the beginning of this phase, the Main Engine is Cut Off (MECO) and the control is reconfigured with the help of aerosurfaces (four elevons, two flaps and two rudders) and reaction control system (RCS). The entry phase brings down the altitude of X33 to about 90,000 feet and its speed to about Mach 3. It spends about 250 seconds in this phase. Main engine is still cut off and the vehicle is controlled by complex maneuvers of aerosurfaces. The last phase TAEM lasts for about 450 seconds and the altitude and speed, both are reduced to zero.

    2017-01-01

    This book offers a comprehensive, easy-to-understand overview of receding-horizon control for nonlinear networks. It presents novel general strategies that can simultaneously handle general nonlinear dynamics, system constraints, and disturbances arising in networked and large-scale systems and which can be widely applied. These receding-horizon-control-based strategies can achieve sub-optimal control performance while ensuring closed-loop stability: a feature attractive to engineers. The authors address the problems of networked and distributed control step-by-step, gradually increasing the level of challenge presented. The book first introduces the state-feedback control problems of nonlinear networked systems and then studies output feedback control problems. For large-scale nonlinear systems, disturbance is considered first, then communication delay separately, and lastly the simultaneous combination of delays and disturbances. Each chapter of this easy-to-follow book not only proposes and analyzes novel ...

    2010-09-01

    In this paper, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmit beamforming (TB) systems under the consideration of nonlinear high-power amplifiers (HPAs) are investigated. The optimal beamforming scheme, with the optimal beamforming weight vector and combining vector, is proposed for MIMO systems with HPA nonlinearity. The performance of the proposed MIMO beamforming scheme in the presence of HPA nonlinearity is evaluated in terms of average symbol error probability (SEP), outage probability and system capacity, considering transmission over uncorrelated quasi-static frequency-flat Rayleigh fading channels. Numerical results are provided and show the effects of several system parameters, namely, parameters of nonlinear HPA, numbers of transmit and receive antennas, and modulation order of phase-shift keying (PSK), on performance. ©2010 IEEE.

    In this paper, a consensus tracking problem of nonlinear multiagent systems is investigated under a directed communication topology. All the followers are modeled by stochastic nonlinear systems in nonstrict feedback form, where nonlinearities and stochastic disturbance terms are totally unknown. Based on the structural characteristic of neural networks (in Lemma 4), a novel distributed adaptive neural control scheme is put forward. The raised control method not only effectively handles unknown nonlinearities in nonstrict feedback systems, but also copes with the interactions among agents and coupling terms. Based on the stochastic Lyapunov functional method, it is indicated that all the signals of the closed-loop system are bounded in probability and all followers' outputs are convergent to a neighborhood of the output of leader. At last, the efficiency of the control method is testified by a numerical example.

    Das, Madhulika; Mahanta, Chitralekha

    2014-07-01

    In this paper, a chattering free optimal second order sliding mode control (OSOSMC) method is proposed to stabilize nonlinear systems affected by uncertainties. The nonlinear optimal control strategy is based on the control Lyapunov function (CLF). For ensuring robustness of the optimal controller in the presence of parametric uncertainty and external disturbances, a sliding mode control scheme is realized by combining an integral and a terminal sliding surface. The resulting second order sliding mode can effectively reduce chattering in the control input. Simulation results confirm the supremacy of the proposed optimal second order sliding mode control over some existing sliding mode controllers in controlling nonlinear systems affected by uncertainty.

    Full Text Available The uncertain nonlinear systems can be modeled with fuzzy equations by incorporating the fuzzy set theory. In this paper, the fuzzy equations are applied as the models for the uncertain nonlinear systems. The nonlinear modeling process is to find the coefficients of the fuzzy equations. We use the neural networks to approximate the coefficients of the fuzzy equations. The approximation theory for crisp models is extended into the fuzzy equation model. The upper bounds of the modeling errors are estimated. Numerical experiments along with comparisons demonstrate the excellent behavior of the proposed method.

    Many physical systems such as biochemical processes and machines with friction are of nonlinearly parameterized systems with uncertainties.How to control such systems effectively is one of the most challenging problems.This paper presents a robust adaptive controller for a significant class of nonlinearly parameterized systems.The controller can be used in cases where there exist parameter and nonlinear uncertainties,unmodeled dynamics and unknown bounded disturbances.The design of the controller is based on the control Lyapunov function method.A dynamic signal is introduced and adaptive nonlinear damping terms are used to restrain the effects of unmodeled dynamics,nonlinear uncertainties and unknown bounded disturbances.The backstepping procedure is employed to overcome the complexity in the design.With the proposed method,the estimation of the unknown parameters of the system is not required and there is only one adaptive parameter no matter how high the order of the system is and how many unknown parameters.there are.It is proved theoretically that the proposed robust adaptive control scheme guarantees the stability of nonlinearly parameterized system.Furthermore,all the states approach the equilibrium in arbitrary precision by choosing some design constants appropriately.Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed robust adaptive controller.

    Van Vaerenbergh, Steven; Via, Javier; Santamaria, Ignacio

    2013-05-01

    We consider the problem of blind identification and equalization of single-input multiple-output (SIMO) nonlinear channels. Specifically, the nonlinear model consists of multiple single-channel Wiener systems that are excited by a common input signal. The proposed approach is based on a well-known blind identification technique for linear SIMO systems. By transforming the output signals into a reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS), a linear identification problem is obtained, which we propose to solve through an iterative procedure that alternates between canonical correlation analysis (CCA) to estimate the linear parts, and kernel canonical correlation (KCCA) to estimate the memoryless nonlinearities. The proposed algorithm is able to operate on systems with as few as two output channels, on relatively small data sets and on colored signals. Simulations are included to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed technique.

    The prediction methods for nonlinear dynamic systems which are decided by chaotic time series are mainly studied as well as structures of nonlinear self-related chaotic models and their dimensions.By combining neural networks and wavelet theories,the structures of wavelet transform neural networks were studied and also a wavelet neural networks learning method was given.Based on wavelet networks,a new method for parameter identification was suggested,which can be used selectively to extract different scales of frequency and time in time series in order to realize prediction of tendencies or details of original time series.Through pre-treatment and comparison of results before and after the treatment,several useful conclusions are reached:High accurate identification can be guaranteed by applying wavelet networks to identify parameters of self-related chaotic models and more valid prediction of the chaotic time series including noise can be achieved accordingly.

    We present methods used to determine the linear or nonlinear static response and the linear dynamic response of an adaptive optics (AO) system. This AO system consists of a nonlinear microelectromechanical systems deformable mirror (DM), a linear tip-tilt mirror (TTM), a control computer, and a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor. The system is modeled using a single-input-single-output structure to determine the one-dimensional transfer function of the dynamic response of the chain of system hardware. An AO system has been shown to be able to characterize its own response without additional instrumentation. Experimentally determined models are given for a TTM and a DM.

    Fatigue tests on a stabilizer bar link of an automotive suspension system are used to initiate a crack and grow the crack size. During these tests, slow sine sweeps are used to extract narrowband restoring forces across the stabilizer bar link. The restoring forces are shown to characterize the nonlinear changes in component internal forces due to crack growth. Broadband frequency response domain techniques are used to analyze the durability response data. Nonlinear frequency domain models of the dynamic transmissibility across the cracked region are shown to change as a function of crack growth. Higher order spectra are used to show the increase in nonlinear coupling of response frequency components with the appearance and growth of the crack. It is shown that crack growth can be detected and characterized by the changes in nonlinear indicators.

    Akpan, Vincent A; Hassapis, George D

    2011-04-01

    This paper presents two new adaptive model predictive control algorithms, both consisting of an on-line process identification part and a predictive control part. Both parts are executed at each sampling instant. The predictive control part of the first algorithm is the Nonlinear Model Predictive Control strategy and the control part of the second algorithm is the Generalized Predictive Control strategy. In the identification parts of both algorithms the process model is approximated by a series-parallel neural network structure which is trained by a recursive least squares (ARLS) method. The two control algorithms have been applied to: 1) the temperature control of a fluidized bed furnace reactor (FBFR) of a pilot plant and 2) the auto-pilot control of an F-16 aircraft. The training and validation data of the neural network are obtained from the open-loop simulation of the FBFR and the nonlinear F-16 aircraft models. The identification and control simulation results show that the first algorithm outperforms the second one at the expense of extra computation time.

    2010-01-01

    We present a method for approximating the solution of a parameterized, nonlinear dynamical (or static) system using an affine combination of solutions computed at other points in the input parameter space. The coefficients of the affine combination are computed with a nonlinear least squares procedure that minimizes the residual of the dynamical system. The approximation properties of this residual minimizing scheme are comparable to existing reduced basis and POD-Galerkin model reduction methods, but its implementation requires only independent evaluations of the nonlinear forcing function. We prove some interesting characteristics of the scheme including uniqueness and an interpolatory property, and we present heuristics for mitigating the effects of the ill-conditioning and reducing the overall cost of the method. We apply the method to representative numerical examples from kinetics - a three state system with one parameter controlling the stiffness - and groundwater modeling - a nonlinear parabolic PDE w...

    This paper studies the robust optimal control design for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems from a perspective of robust adaptive dynamic programming (RADP). The objective is to fill up a gap in the past literature of adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) where dynamic uncertainties or unmodeled dynamics are not addressed. A key strategy is to integrate tools from modern nonlinear control theory, such as the robust redesign and the backstepping techniques as well as the nonlinear small-gain theorem, with the theory of ADP. The proposed RADP methodology can be viewed as an extension of ADP to uncertain nonlinear systems. Practical learning algorithms are developed in this paper, and have been applied to the controller design problems for a jet engine and a one-machine power system.

  5. Nonlinear electrodynamics as a symmetric hyperbolic system

    CERN Document Server

    Abalos, Fernando; Goulart, Érico; Reula, Oscar

    2015-01-01

    Nonlinear theories generalizing Maxwell's electromagnetism and arising from a Lagrangian formalism have dispersion relations in which propagation planes factor into null planes corresponding to two effective metrics which depend on the point-wise values of the electromagnetic field. These effective Lorentzian metrics share the null (generically two) directions of the electromagnetic field. We show that, the theory is symmetric hyperbolic if and only if the cones these metrics give rise to have a non-empty intersection. Namely that there exist families of symmetrizers in the sense of Geroch which are positive definite for all covectors in the interior of the cones intersection. Thus, for these theories, the initial value problem is well-posed. We illustrate the power of this approach with several nonlinear models of physical interest such as Born-Infeld, Gauss-Bonnet and Euler-Heisenberg.

    2017-09-01

    The introduction of the frequency-domain nonlinear subspace identification (FNSI) method in 2013 constitutes one in a series of recent attempts toward developing a realistic, first-generation framework applicable to complex structures. If this method showed promising capabilities when applied to academic structures, it is still confronted with a number of limitations which needs to be addressed. In particular, the removal of nonphysical poles in the identified nonlinear models is a distinct challenge. In the present paper, it is proposed as a first contribution to operate directly on the identified state-space matrices to carry out spurious pole removal. A modal-space decomposition of the state and output matrices is examined to discriminate genuine from numerical poles, prior to estimating the extended input and feedthrough matrices. The final state-space model thus contains physical information only and naturally leads to nonlinear coefficients free of spurious variations. Besides spurious variations due to nonphysical poles, vibration modes lying outside the frequency band of interest may also produce drifts of the nonlinear coefficients. The second contribution of the paper is to include residual terms, accounting for the existence of these modes. The proposed improved FNSI methodology is validated numerically and experimentally using a full-scale structure, the Morane-Saulnier Paris aircraft.

    This paper describes a novel framework that combines advanced mechanics-based nonlinear (hysteretic) finite element (FE) models and stochastic filtering techniques to estimate unknown time-invariant parameters of nonlinear inelastic material models used in the FE model. Using input-output data recorded during earthquake events, the proposed framework updates the nonlinear FE model of the structure. The updated FE model can be directly used for damage identification and further used for damage prognosis. To update the unknown time-invariant parameters of the FE model, two alternative stochastic filtering methods are used: the extended Kalman filter (EKF) and the unscented Kalman filter (UKF). A three-dimensional, 5-story, 2-by-1 bay reinforced concrete (RC) frame is used to verify the proposed framework. The RC frame is modeled using fiber-section displacement-based beam-column elements with distributed plasticity and is subjected to the ground motion recorded at the Sylmar station during the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The results indicate that the proposed framework accurately estimate the unknown material parameters of the nonlinear FE model. The UKF outperforms the EKF when the relative root-mean-square error of the recorded responses are compared. In addition, the results suggest that the convergence of the estimate of modeling parameters is smoother and faster when the UKF is utilized.

    The study focuses on the applicability of system identification to identify building and system dynamics for climate control design. The main problem regarding the simulation of the dynamic response of a building using building simulation software is that (1) the simulation of a large complex building is time consuming, and (2) simulation results often lack information regarding fast dynamic behaviour (in the order of seconds), since most software uses a discrete time step, usually fixed to one hour. The first objective is to study the applicability of system identification to reduce computing time for the simulation of large complex buildings. The second objective is to research the applicability of system identification to identify building dynamics based on discrete time data (one hour) for climate control design. The study illustrates that system identification is applicable for the identification of building dynamics with a frequency that is smaller as the maximum sample frequency as used for identificat...

    We obtain long time asymptotics for the solutions to a string coupled to a nonlinear oscillator: each finite energy solution decays to a sum of a stationary state and a dispersive wave. The asymptotics hold in global energy norm. The dispersive waves are expressed via initial data and solution to an ordinary differential equation. The asymptotics give a mathematical model for the Bohr's transitions between quantum stationary states.

    Full Text Available A nonlinear integral sliding-mode control (NISMC scheme is proposed for second order nonlinear systems. The new control scheme is characterized by a nonlinear integral sliding manifold which inherits the desired properties of the integral sliding manifold, such as robustness to system external disturbance. In particular, compared with four kinds of sliding mode control (SMC, the proposed control scheme is able to provide better transient performances. Furthermore, the proposed scheme ensures the zero steady-state error in the presence of a constant disturbance or an asymptotically constant disturbance is proved by Lyapunov stability theory and LaSalle invariance principle. Finally, both the theoretical analysis and simulation examples demonstrate the validity of the proposed scheme.

    Recently, new identification methods have been developed by using the concept of optimal-recursive filtering and stochastic approximation. These methods, known as stochastic identification, are based on the statistical properties of the signal and noise, and do not require the assumptions of current methods. The criterion for stochastic system identification is that the difference between the recorded output and the output from the identified system (i.e., the residual of the identification) should be equal to white noise. In this paper, first a brief review of the theory is given. Then, an application of the method is presented by using ambient vibration data from a nine-story building.

    Volterra series is a powerful mathematical tool for nonlinear system analysis,and there is a wide range of non-linear engineering systems and structures that can be represented by a Volterra series model.In the present study,the random vibration of nonlinear systems is investigated using Volterra series.Analytical expressions were derived for the calculation of the output power spectral density (PSD) and input-output cross-PSD for nonlinear systems subjected to Gaussian excitation.Based on these expressions,it was revealed that both the output PSD and the input-output crossPSD can be expressed as polynomial functions of the nonlinear characteristic parameters or the input intensity.Numerical studies were carried out to verify the theoretical analysis result and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the derived relationship.The results reached in this study are of significance to the analysis and design of the nonlinear engineering systems and structures which can be represented by a Volterra series model.

  13. NLSCIDNT user's guide maximum likehood parameter identification computer program with nonlinear rotorcraft model

    1979-01-01

    A nonlinear, maximum likelihood, parameter identification computer program (NLSCIDNT) is described which evaluates rotorcraft stability and control coefficients from flight test data. The optimal estimates of the parameters (stability and control coefficients) are determined (identified) by minimizing the negative log likelihood cost function. The minimization technique is the Levenberg-Marquardt method, which behaves like the steepest descent method when it is far from the minimum and behaves like the modified Newton-Raphson method when it is nearer the minimum. Twenty-one states and 40 measurement variables are modeled, and any subset may be selected. States which are not integrated may be fixed at an input value, or time history data may be substituted for the state in the equations of motion. Any aerodynamic coefficient may be expressed as a nonlinear polynomial function of selected 'expansion variables'.

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the problem of identifying and filtering a class of continuous-time nonlinear dynamic games (nonlinear differential games subject to additive and undesired deterministic perturbations. Moreover, the mathematical model of this class is completely unknown with the exception of the control actions of each player, and even though the deterministic noises are known, their power (or their effect is not. Therefore, two differential neural networks are designed in order to obtain a feedback (perfect state information pattern for the mentioned class of games. In this way, the stability conditions for two state identification errors and for a filtering error are established, the upper bounds of these errors are obtained, and two new learning laws for each neural network are suggested. Finally, an illustrating example shows the applicability of this approach.

    An innovative strategy for optimal nonlinear feedback control of linear or nonlinear stochastic dynamic systems is proposed based on the stochastic averaging method for quasi-Hamiltonian systems and stochastic dynamic programming principle. Feedback control forces of a system are divided into conservative parts and dissipative parts. The conservative parts are so selected that the energy distribution in the controlled system is as requested as possible. Then the response of the system with known conservative control forces is reduced to a controlled diffusion process by using the stochastic averaging method. The dissipative parts of control forces are obtained from solving the stochastic dynamic programming equation.

    We introduce a new dynamical evolutionary algorithm(DEA) based on the theory of statistical mechanics and investigate the reconstruction problem for the nonlinear dynamical systems using observation data. The convergence of the algorithm is discussed. We make the numerical experiments and test our model using the two famous chaotic systems (mainly the Lorenz and Chen systems ). The results show the relatively accurate reconstruction of these chaotic systems based on observational data can be obtained. Therefore we may conclude that there are broad prospects using our method to model the nonlinear dynamical systems.
