Design of an Optimal Input Signal for Parameter Estimation of Linear Fractional-Order Systems

Wiktor Jakowluk


The optimal input signal design is a procedure of generating an informative excitation signal to extract the model parameters with maximum accuracy during the estimation process. Non-integer order calculus is a very useful tool, which is often utilized for modeling and control purposes. In the paper, we present a novel optimal input formulation and a numerical scheme for fractional order LTI system identification. The Oustaloup recursive approximation (ORA) method is used to determine the fractional order differentiation in an integer order state-space form. Then, the presented methodology is adopted to obtain an optimal input signal for fractional order system identification from the order interval 0.5≤α≤2.0 . The fundamental step in the presented method was to reformulate the problem into a similar fractional optimal input design problem described by Lagrange formula with the set of constraints. The methodology presented in the paper was verified using a numerical example, and the computational results were discussed.
