Estimate state-space model by reduction of regularized ARX model

pair
arguments.

`ssregest`

function provides improved accuracy than`n4sid`

for short, noisy data sets.For some problems, the quality of fit using

`n4sid`

is sensitive to options, such as`N4Horizon`

, whose values can be difficult to determine. In comparison, the quality of fit with`ssregest`

is less sensitive to its options, which makes`ssregest`

simpler to use.

`ssregest`

estimates a regularized ARX model
and converts the ARX model to a state-space model. The software then
uses balanced model reduction techniques to reduce the state-space
model to the specified order.
