Modular Subspace-Based System Identification From Multi-Setup Measurements
Subspace identification algorithms are efficient for output-only eigenstructure identification of linear MIMO systems. The problem of merging sensor data obtained from moving and non-simultaneously recorded measurement setups under varying excitation is considered. To address the problem of dimension explosion, when retrieving the system matrices of the complete system, a modular and scalable approach is proposed. Adapted to a large class of subspace methods, observability matrices are normalized and merged to retrieve global system matrices.
