Identification of Spatio-temporal Systems
Systems with spatio-temporal dynamics, commonly known as Distributed- Parameter Systems (DPSs), constitute one of the most general and important classes of systems which are widely used in modelling for a great variety of real-world engineering problems. As a matter of fact, rapidly growing demands of recent control and quality monitoring systems stimulate engineers to search for more precise mathematical models of the phenomena considered. This leads directly to the description of the system at hand using Partial Differential Equations (PDEs), usually expressing physical laws governing the behavior of the system. The reason is that lumped descriptions of system dynamics basically become unsatisfactory as they cannot provide a sufficient approximation of the distributed nature of the investigated process. Despite the more sophisticated formulation in terms of PDEs, such models achieve high quality and efficiency of simulations and control techniques [19, 47, 87, 145].
