Abstract: The main contribution of this paper is the extension of the Simplified Refined Instrumental Variable (SRIV) identification algorithm for SISO systems to the identification of MIMO systems described by a Left Matrix Fraction Description (LMFD). The performance of the extended algorithm is compared to the well-known MIMO four-step instrumental variable (IV4) algorithm. Monte Carlo simulations for different signal to noise ratios are conducted to assess the performance of the algorithm.
Keywords: Multivariable System Identification, SRIV, LMFD, IV4, Steiglitz-McBride.
