Abstract

This paper compares four well selected methods for computing the non-parametric Frequency Response Function (FRF) of a periodically excited linear time invariant system. The suppression of the transient is mandatory when its influence in the data is large. Better suppression of the transient leads to a better non-parametric FRF estimate. A good non-parametric FRF estimate can be used to validate the parametric transfer function model in a second step. The suppression of the transient will be highlighted using the mean squared error of the non-parametric FRF estimate. Temperature transients caused by heat diffusion are used as example. The selected methods consist of two standard windowing methods and two methods based on the Local Polynomial Method (LPM). LPM was designed to find a non-parametric FRF estimate in the presence of nonlinearities. This paper will modify LPM to find a non-parametric FRF estimate for linear systems using a single experiment. The mean squared error of the four non-parametric FRF estimates will be compared and analyzed, based on a simulation and a measurement example.
