Benchmark problems for continuous-time model identification: Design aspects, results and perspectives

Abstract : The problem of estimating continuous-time model parameters of linear dynamical systems using sampled time-domain input and output data has received considerable attention over the past decades and has been approached by various methods. The research topic also bears practical importance due to both its close relation to first principles modeling and equally to linear model-based control design techniques, most of them carried in continuous time. Nonetheless, as the performance of the existing algorithms for continuous-time model identification has seldom been assessed and, as thus far, it has not been considered in a comprehensive study, this practical potential of existing methods remains highly questionable. The goal of this brief paper is to bring forward a first study on this issue and to factually highlight the main aspects of interest. As such, an analysis is performed on a benchmark designed to be consistent both from a system identification viewpoint and from a control-theoretic one. It is concluded that robust initialization aspects require further research focus towards reliable algorithm development.
