Identification of Linear Distributed Systems

Project Details


Until now , the main research efforts of the department ELEC were concentrated on the modelling and identification of lumped , linear , time-invariant systems(rational transfer functions in s- or z-domain).Although lumped models of sufficiently high order can describe accurately distributed systems(e.g. for simulation purposes) , these models with a large number of parameters are not appropriate for fysical interpretation.The true underlying physical models (with a limitted number of parameters) result in non rational transfer functions.The aim of this project consists in determining the physical parameters of various distributed systems (electrical , mechanical , acoustical , ...) from noisy experiments.
