Abstract:

The problem of obtaining parametric models for linear and nonlinear systems based on observations of the input and output of the system is one of wide ranging interest. For linear systems, moving average MA and autoregressive AR models have received considerable attention and, based on the Levinson algorithm, a number of very powerful methods involving lattice filter structures have been developed to obtain the model solutions. For nonlinear systems the Volterra series model which is a nonlinear extension of the moving average model is frequently used. The purpose of this research is to extend these techniques to more general linear and nonlinear models. Using the equation error formulation, lattice solution methods in batch processing and adaptive form are developed for both single and multichannel autoregressive moving average ARMA models for linear systems and Volterra series models for nonlinear systems. A nonlinear extension of the ARMA model is also considered and is shown in some cases to remedy problems encountered in Volterra modeling of nonlinear systems. Lattice methods are also developed for the nonlinear ARMA model and it is shown that the methods obtained for linear ARMA modeling follow as a special case of the nonlinear results.
