Analysis of Toothbrush Rig Parameter Estimation Using Different Model Orders in Real-Coded Genetic Algorithm (RCGA)
Keywords:Modeling, objective function, system identification, validation.
System identification is a method to build a model for a dynamic system from the experimental data. In this paper, optimization technique was applied to optimize the objective function that lead to satisfying solution which obtain the dynamic model of the system. Real-coded genetic algorithm (RCGA) as a stochastic global search method was applied for optimization. Hence, the model of the plant was represented by the transfer function from the identified parameters obtained from the optimization process. For performance analysis of toothbrush rig parameter estimation, there were six different model orders have been considered where each of model order has been analyzed for 10 times. The influence of conventional genetic algorithm parameter - generation gap has been investigated too. The statistical analysis was used to evaluate the performance of the model based on the objective function which is the Mean Square Error (MSE). The validation test-through correlation analysis was used to validate the model. The model of model order 2 is chosen as the best model as it has fulfilled the criteria involved in selecting the accurate model. Generation gap used was 0.5 has shorten the algorithm convergence time without affecting the model accuracy.
