This article deals with experimental identification and control of laboratory helicopter model CE 150 manufactured by company Humusoft. Structure of the identified system was approximated by linear black-box models. Discrete Input/Output Auto-Regressive Moving Average model with eXternal input (ARMAX) and its state space equivalent were used. Parameters of the models were estimated by regression techniques using System Identification Toolbox for Matlab. Acquired models were validated using simulations, residual analysis and real-time control. Input/output data necessary for identification were obtained by measurements from laboratory model and were processed using Real-Time Toolbox for Matlab. Based on acquired mathematical models input/output and state space controllers were designed (input/output pole placement with integration, state space pole placement with integration and observer). Designed controllers were implemented in Matlab environment using the Real Time Toolbox and their performance was verified by real-time control of the helicopter model.

    We describe a tool which supports the activity of a human being in fitting a mathematical model to measured or simulated data. The tool offers two principal advantages; its use requires a minimum of statistical knowledge, and its visual and interactive nature ensures that its use is intuitive....

    It is not uncommon to deal with very small experiments in practice. For example, if the experiment is conducted on the production process, it is likely that only a very few experimental runs will be allowed. If testing involves the destruction of expensive experimental units, we might only have...

    Experimental data need to be assessed for purposes of model identification, estimation of model parameters and consequences of mis-specified model fits. Here the first and third factors are considered via analytic formulations for the distribution of the maximum likelihood estimates. When...

    The presence of outlying observations in panel data can affect the classical estimates in a dramatic way. Nevertheless, the common practice seems to disregard the problem. The aim of this work is to study robust regression techniques in the fixed effects linear panel data framework. Robustness...

    This study proposes the modelling and behavioural simulation of a high-speed phased-locked loop for frequency synthesis. The authors consider the second-order active lag-lead as well as the standard feedback approach of loop filter design for the system model. The s-domain transfer functions of...

    Objective priors, especially reference priors, have been studied extensively for spatial data in the last decade. In this paper, we study objective priors for a CAR model. In particular, the properties of the reference prior and the corresponding posterior are studied. Furthermore, we show that...

    Much has been reported about the analysis of transient multiexponentials data. In a previous paper, for example, this analysis was done using autoregressive moving average model which was applied to the deconvolved data arising from the application of Gardner transform followed by optimal...

    There is a common belief that the presence of residual spatial autocorrelation in ordinary least squares (OLS) regression leads to inflated significance levels in beta coefficients and, in particular, inflated levels relative to the more efficient spatial error model (SEM). However, our...

    When analysing macroeconomic data it is often of relevance to allow for structural breaks in the statistical analysis. In particular, cointegration analysis in the presence of structural breaks could be of interest. We propose a cointegration model with piecewise linear trend and known break...
