### Identification of Multivariable Linear Systems of Unknown Structure by the Prior Knowledge Fitting Method

(1970) In Report TFRT 3023.- Abstract
- This report deals with identification of multivariable linear systems of finite order from measurements of input-output signals when the outputs are corrupted by additive random noises. The input-output relations of such systems can be described by a vector difference equation. A canonical form for the matrix coefficients of this equation is proposed and its existence and uniqueness are shown. This canonical form enables the identification of the structure of matrix coefficients by straightforward search, which drastically reduces the number of different structures, whose "fit" is otherwise to be tested. <br><br> An application of the prior knowledge fitting method for identification of the structure of the matrix coefficients...
