A log-frequency approach to the identification of the Wiener-Hammerstein model
October 1, 2009
In this paper we present a simple closed-form solution to the Wiener-Hammerstein (W-H) identification problem. The identification process occurs in the log-frequency domain where magnitudes and phases are separable. We show that the theoretically optimal W-H identification is unique up to an amplitude, phase and delay ambiguity, and that the nonlinearity enables the separate identification of the individual linear time invariant (LTI) components in a W-H architecture.
