Paper Abstract

The well known frequency-domain observability range space extraction (FORSE) algorithm provides a powerful multivariable system-identification tool with inherent flexibility, to create state-space models from frequency-response data (FRD). This paper presents a method of using FORSE to create “context models” of a lightly damped system, from which models of individual resonant modes can be extracted. Further, it shows how to combine the extracted models of many individual modes into one large state-space model. Using this method, the author has created very high-order state-space models that accurately match measured FRD over very broad bandwidths, i.e., resonant peaks spread across five orders-of-magnitude of frequency bandwidth.
