Option set for
opt = greyestOptions
opt = greyestOptions(Name,Value)
Specify optional pairs of arguments as
the argument name and
Value is the corresponding value.
Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the
pairs does not matter.
Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose
Name in quotes.
InitialState — Handling of initial states
'auto' (default) |
Handling of initial states during estimation, specified as one of the following values:
'model'— The initial state is parameterized by the ODE file used by the
idgreymodel. The ODE file must return 6 or more output arguments.
'zero'— The initial state is set to zero. Any values returned by the ODE file are ignored.
'estimate'— The initial state is treated as an independent estimation parameter.
'backcast'— The initial state is estimated using the best least squares fit.
'auto'— The software chooses the method to handle initial states based on the estimation data.
Vector of doubles — Specify a column vector of length Nx, where Nx is the number of states. For multiexperiment data, specify a matrix with Ne columns, where Ne is the number of experiments. The specified values are treated as fixed values during the estimation process.
DisturbanceModel — Handling of disturbance component
'auto' (default) |
Handling of the disturbance component (K) during estimation, specified as one of the following values:
'model'— K values are parameterized by the ODE file used by the
idgreymodel. The ODE file must return 5 or more output arguments.
'fixed'— The value of the
Kproperty of the
idgreymodel is fixed to its original value.
'none'— K is fixed to zero. Any values returned by the ODE file are ignored.
'estimate'— K is treated as an independent estimation parameter.
'auto'— The software chooses the method to handle how the disturbance component is handled during estimation. The software uses the
'model'method if the ODE file returns 5 or more output arguments with a finite value for K. Else, the software uses the
Noise model cannot be estimated using frequency domain data.
Advanced — Additional advanced options
Additional advanced options, specified as a structure with the following fields:
ErrorThreshold— Specifies when to adjust the weight of large errors from quadratic to linear.
Errors larger than
ErrorThresholdtimes the estimated standard deviation have a linear weight in the loss function. The standard deviation is estimated robustly as the median of the absolute deviations from the median of the prediction errors, divided by
0.7. For more information on robust norm choices, see section 15.2 of .
ErrorThreshold = 0disables robustification and leads to a purely quadratic loss function. When estimating with frequency-domain data, the software sets
ErrorThresholdto zero. For time-domain data that contains outliers, try setting
MaxSize— Specifies the maximum number of elements in a segment when input-output data is split into segments.
MaxSizemust be a positive integer.
StabilityThreshold— Specifies thresholds for stability tests.
StabilityThresholdis a structure with the following fields:
s— Specifies the location of the right-most pole to test the stability of continuous-time models. A model is considered stable when its right-most pole is to the left of
z— Specifies the maximum distance of all poles from the origin to test stability of discrete-time models. A model is considered stable if all poles are within the distance
zfrom the origin.
AutoInitThreshold— Specifies when to automatically estimate the initial state.
The initial state is estimated when
ymeas is the measured output.
yp,z is the predicted output of a model estimated using zero initial states.
yp,e is the predicted output of a model estimated using estimated initial states.
