Instantaneous Identification of Polynomial Nonlinearity Based on Volterra Series Representation
In structural engineering applications a sufficient quantity of experimental data to be able to achieve a consistent estimate of nonlinear quantities is seldom available: this applies in particular when the structures are to be tested in situ. This report discusses the definition of instantaneous estimators to be used in the dynamic identification of invariant nonlinear systems on the basis of Short-Time Fourier Transform representation of excitation and system’s response and within the framework of a Volterra series representation of the input/output relationship. An estimation of the parameters of a dynamic system can be worked out from the evolution of such instantaneous estimators.
