  • Publication number: 20200132775
    Abstract: A state estimation device receives, as inputs, an output from a target system and a nonlinear model that is a modeled target system, and estimates a state of the target system by using an extended Kalman filter. The nonlinear model includes a nonlinear continuous-time state equation. The device includes a state-and-error estimation unit that, on the basis of an observation equation of the nonlinear model, obtains an estimated state value and an estimated value of an error covariance matrix of the estimated state value, the estimated state value being indicative of an estimated state of the target system at a certain time point. The state estimation device also includes state-equation discretization circuitry that obtains a discrete-time state equation by discretizing the nonlinear continuous-time state equation on the basis of the estimated state value at this time point, by using a quadratic or higher-order integration technique.

  • Publication number: 20160342731
    Abstract: A system identification device identifies a linear discrete-time system using a recursive method with respect to each dimension belonging to a designated search range of a system dimension, calculates a system output obtained when actual input data for identification is applied to a linear discrete-time system corresponding to each dimension as a system characteristic, determines a minimum dimension from among dimensions at which a norm distribution of sum of squares of errors in a time domain of the system output and actual output data for identification of the dynamic system is less than or equal to a threshold value, to be a system dimension n, and identifies a system matrix of the linear discrete-time system based on input and output vectors of the dynamic system, and a state vector generated using the determined system dimension.
