Problems using 'tfest' for generating transfer function

9 views (last 30 days)
Hello guys...
I am trying to find a transfer function for my signal, that matches with the moving average block of my signal. I used tfest to recreate the signal using the generated coefficients. However, the accuracy is very low at 2%. I am wondering how to increase it, or am I doing something wrong.
In another case, to verify whether the function works, I tried with tf = 1/(s+1), generated the signals, used 'tfest' to get the transfer function, I got 0.1404/(s+0.1998) , which is way-way off.
let me know what you think of this.
Have a nice day..
data_0= iddata(T_avg_mean,T_pedal,0.01);
>> tf_estimated = tfest(data_0,2)
tf_estimated =
From input "u1" to output "y1":
-0.0188 s + 0.005945
s^2 + 7.891e-06 s + 0.4232
Continuous-time identified transfer function.
Number of poles: 2 Number of zeros: 1
Number of free coefficients: 4
Use "tfdata", "getpvec", "getcov" for parameters and their uncertainties.
Estimated using TFEST on time domain data "data_0".
Fit to estimation data: 2.051%
FPE: 128.3, MSE: 128.3

hello again
here a bunch of files to post process your data
I don't have the ID toolbox but I have the Signal Processing Tbx ( I use invfreqz to get the num/den model from a frequency domain model (cf Bode plot)
the Bode plot and coherence plot is obtained with my function mytfe_and_coh.m (also attached)
coherence plot is also good to have to make sure the input signal (x) has energy distributed accross the entire frequency range (otherwise the results may be inaccurate in frequency domain that has been poorly excited);
I don't put all the codes here in the window otherwise it's gonna be very clutered
see the attachements and maybe that can help you
see identified models Bode plots are precisely matchind the tfe Bode plot
NB : I identified the models in the discrete domain, use d2cm to get back to continuous if needed
