A GA-Based Pruning Strategy and Weight Update Algorithm for Efficient Nonlinear System Identification
Identification of nonlinear static and dynamic systems plays a key role in many engineering applications including communication, control and instrumentation. Various adaptive models have been suggested in the literature using ANN and Fuzzy logic based structures. In this paper we employ an efficient and low complexity Functional Link ANN (FLANN) model for identifying such nonlinear systems using GA based learning of connective weights. In addition, pruning of connecting paths is also simultaneously carried out using GA to reduce the network architecture. Computer simulations on various static and dynamic systems indicate that there is more than 50% reduction in original model FLANN structure with almost equivalent identification performance.
