IntroductionIn chapter 7 three basic parameter estimation method considered

1- The Prediction-Error Approach in which a certain function VN(θ,ZN) is minimized with respect to θ.

2- The Correlation Approach in which a certain equation fN(θ,ZN)=0 is solved for θ.

3- The Subspace Approach to estimating state space models.

In this chapter we shall discuss how these problems are best solved numerically.

R(N) may be ill-conditioned specially when its dimension is high.The underlying idea in these methods is that the matrix R(N) should not be formed, instead a matrix R is constructed with the property

)(NRRRT =

This class of methods is commonly known as “square-root algorithm”

But the term “quadratic methods” is more appropriate.

There are three important advantages with this way of solving the LS estimate:

2321 ),ˆ( giving,ˆ RZVRR N

NNN == θθ

2- R1 is a triangular matrix, so the equation is easy to solve.

3- If the QR-factorization is performed for a regressor size d*, then the solutionsfor all models with fewer parameter are easily obtained from R0.

Note that the big matrix Q is never required to find. All the information are contained in the “small” matrix R0

11)( RRNR TT =ΦΦ=Therefore R1 is much better conditioned than R(N).

1- The condition number of R1 is the square root of R(N).

If we have knowledge only of z(t) for 1 ≤ t ≤ N the question arises of how to deal with the unknown initial condition

2 - Replace the unknown initial condition by zeros.

Even though RN is assured to be positive semi definite, it may be singular or close to singular. (for example, if the model is over-parameterized or the data are not informative enough) Various ways to overcome this problem exist and are known as “regularization techniques”

Using a Noisy Estimate of the Extended Observability Matrix

Let us now assume that the given matrix G is a noisy estimate of the true obsevability matrix

Due to the noise, S will typically have all singular non-zero values

It is reasonable to proceed as above and perform an SVD on G:

Where EN is small and tends to zero as . The rank of Or is not known. While the noise matrix EN is likely to be full rank.

The first n will be supported by Or , while the remaining ones will stem from EN .

So this system of equations should be solved in a least-squares sense.

not be exactly subject to the shift structureA C

If the noise is small, one should expected that the latter are significantly smaller than the former.

Therefore determine n as the number of singular values that are significantly larger than 0.

Here R is an arbitrary matrix, that will the coordinate basis for the state representation.

In the noiseless case E=0, these weightings are without consequence. However, when noise is present, they have an important influence on the space spanned by U1.and hence on the quality of the estimates and .A C

Remark. The post-multiplying W2 by an orthogonal matrix does not effect the U1-matrix in the decomposition.

And then use the below equation to determine andA C

The post-multiplication by W2 just corresponds to a change of basis in the state-space and the pre-multiplication by W1 is eliminated.

Subspace Methods for Estimating State Space Models

Remember:

The scalar r, is the maximal prediction horizon and in many algorithms use r = s

Many algorithms choose φs(t) to consist of past inputs and outputs with s1=s2=s. So scalar s is a design variable.
