Volterra-Laguerre modeling for NMPC

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



Volterra series are perhaps the best understood nonlinear system representations in signal processing. They can be used to model a wide class of nonlinear systems. However, since these models are non-parsimonious in parameters, the symmetric kernel parameters are used This model is used to evaluate identification of a pH-neutralization process. The aim is to use this model in nonlinear model predictive control framework. For this purpose various orders of the Laguerre filters and also Volterra kernels are tested and the results are compared in terms of the validation of these models. The results show that to have a good trade off between simplicity of the model and its corresponding fitness, the selected nonlinear Volterra model has the memory of 3 while the number of its kennel is 4. The VAF of this model is 99.63% which is completely acceptable for nonlinear model predictive control applications.
