Abstract : This paper presents a Quad RLS(Q-RLS) technique with four RLSs under a ﬁxed forgetting factor condition to improve the identiﬁcation performance of a dynamical system in a real-time fashion. Although an adaptive RLS method with a variable forgetting factor and a higher order model may provide the modeling accuracy, their implementations are not easy because of leakage effects and relatively complex modeling. In practice, the ﬁxed forgetting factor is still used for the RLS-based system identiﬁcation. Therefore, a novel Q-RLS scheme with concurrent four RLSs is proposed as an alternative way for the better estimation performance in an on-line fashion. In the Q-RLS scheme, the ﬁrst pair of the forward and inverse RLSs is to identify the forward and inverse models independently. The second pair of the forward and inverse RLSs is to improve the identiﬁcation of the previously identiﬁed model. The proposed approach has several advantages: 1) The RLS with a ﬁxed forgetting factor can avoid the leakage problem. 2) Both forward and inverse models are separately identiﬁed to improve the accuracy. 3) Q-RLS can have the 4th order ﬁlter structure, but provide the better identiﬁcation performance. Three schemes such as a second-order RLS, a fourth-order RLS, and the Q-RLS are experimentally tested and their performances are compared for the state observation accuracy of the control moment gyroscope(CMG) system.
