Automated modal analysis based on frequency response function estimates
Paper i proceeding, 2012
Given measured data as estimated frequency responses of a quasi-linear system, there is a variety of system identification methods that identify a state-space model that gives good correlation to the data. Such methods are the N4SID and the PolyMAX methods. Using these methods, a key problem is to select the proper model order. In this work we investigate a method for the automatic detection of proper model order. The method is based on the statistical evaluation of an ensemble of state-space models all identified from the same basic set of frequency response functions, but with different realizations based on a bootstrapping scheme. We apply the method to real test data.
