Subspace identification of Wiener model and linear systems




System identification, structure of Wiener, subspace identification


This article presents an overview of the problem of identifying linear and nonlinear systems (Wiener type) operating in open loop. There are several algorithms that solve this problem, among them are the subspace methods (MOESP and N4SID). In order to evaluate the performance of the MOESP and N4SID methods, a simulated example is presented to compare the performance of these algorithms.
