Description |
The Vold-Kalman Filter, introduced by HÃ¥vard Vold and Jan Leuridan in 1993, is able to extract non-stationary periodic components from a signal using a known frequency vector [1]. Being formulated in a least-squares sense, it can be solved as a sparse linear system. Similar to the Kalman filter, VKF minimises a cost function based on a structural equation and a data equation.
This submission implements the second generation VKF with the ability to extract multiple orders at the same time, with energy spreading in case of crossing orders [2].
Syntax:
x = vkf(y,fs,f) extracts the order with frequency vector f from signal y with samplerate fs, using a 2-pole filter with a -3dB bandwidth of 1 percent of the sample rate. The output is a single waveform x.
[...] = vkf(y,fs,f,p) uses a p-order filter (typically between 1 or 4). Every order increases the roll-off by -40dB per decade. By specifying additional lower-order coefficients, zero boundary conditions are added. For instance: p = [2 0 1] applies 2nd order filtering and forces the envelope amplitude and its first derivative to zero at t_1 and t_N.
[...] = vkf(y,fs,f,p,bw) uses a bandwidth in Hertz specified by bw. If bw is a scalar, a constant bandwidth is used; if bw is a vector with the same length as y, a time-varying instantaneous bandwidth is realised.
X = vkf(y,fs,F,...) with [N,K] = size(F), performs simultaneous extraction of K orders with frequency vectors [f_1,...,f_K] in array F. In case of crossing orders, this method tries to reveal the correctorder amplitudes. The output is an array of K waveforms [x_1,...,x_K].
X = vkf(y,fs,F,p,bw,0) switches to a single-order algorithm. K orders are still extracted, but the single-order algorithm is computationally less demanding. This is suggested for high sample rates and/or long timeseries.
[a,c] = vkf(...) returns the complex envelope(s) a and phasor(s) c, such that the order waveform(s) can be reconstructed by x = real(a.*c).
[a,c,r] = vkf(...) ouputs an additional selectivity vector r used to realise the bandwidth given by bw.
Demo:
Calling VKF without arguments shows a small demonstration of multi-order filtering with two crossing orders in the presence of white noise.
Note: Filter orders > 4 usually result in ill conditioning and should be avoided. The filter bandwidth determination was implemented for arbitrary order but was not verified for orders higher than 3.
