2.160 System Identification, Estimation, and Learning Lecture Notes No. 1 7 April 24, 2006 12. Informative Experiments 12.1 Persistence of Excitation Informative data sets are closely related to “ Persistence of Excitation”, an important concept used in adaptive and learning controls. See the block diagram of an indirect adaptive control system below. The control system monitors input-output data in order to identify the plant model in real, and modifies the feedback control as the plant dynamics vary; hence the control system is adaptive to varying plant dynamics. Adaptation Law Model Plant Feedback Control ) ( t y ) ( t u - + (Indirect) Adaptive Control Success of this adaptive control system hinges on the data. The central question is whether the input-output data obtained in real-time are informative enough to identify the plant model uniquely. This is often questionable, since the control system tends to drive the plant to a specific set point or to follow a specific trajectory. The trajectory may not be rich enough to excite the system. The following theory of persistent excitation and informative experiment are fundamental to these questions. Definition 4 A quasi-stationary signal { } ) ( t u , with spectrum ) ( ω u Φ , is said to be persistently exciting of order , n if the condition: ( ) 0 ) ( 2 Φ u i n e M ( 1 ) implies ( ) 0 i n e M ( 2 ) where is an arbitrary linear filter of form: ) ( q M n n n n q m q m q m q M + + + = " 2 2 1 1 ) ( (3) 1

Therefore, a signal u(t) that is persistently exciting of order cannot be filtered to zero by any ( n -1) st order moving average filter (3), hence it is called persistently exciting. n ) ( q M ) ( t u ) ( t v 2.
