System Identification of an Electrohydraulic Steering System 1999-01-2854
This paper presents system identification methods of using both frequency and time domain analyses to estimate system parameters for a nonlinear electrohydraulic (E/H) tractor steering system. The frequency domain method identified parameters of the system using a linear model with a nonlinear gain function. The time domain method identified those parameters using a discrete time expression. A method of multiple models was used to represent the nonlinear system for both frequency and time domain analyses. Simulation and test results showed that the modified identification method could satisfactorily identify the parameters of the nonlinear E/H tractor steering system.
