Time Series Analysis
A time series is data that contains one or more measured output channels but no measured input. A time series model, also called a signal model, is a dynamic system that is identified to fit a given signal or time series data. The time series can be multivariate, which leads to multivariate models. You can identify time series models in the System Identification app or at the command line. System Identification Toolbox™ enables you to create and estimate four general types of time series model.
Linear parametric models — Estimate parameters in structures such as autoregressive models and state-space models.
Frequency-response models — Estimate spectral models using spectral analysis.
Nonlinear ARX models — Estimate parameters in the nonlinear ARX structure.
Grey-box models — Estimate the coefficients of the ordinary differential or difference equations that represent your system dynamics.
Parametric time series model identification requires uniformly sampled time-domain data, except for the ARX model, which can handle frequency-domain signals. Spectral analysis algorithms support time-domain and frequency-domain data. Your data can have one or more output channels and must have no input channel. For more information on time series models, see What Are Time Series Models?
You can use the identified models to predict model output at the command line, in the app, or in Simulink®. At the command line, you can also forecast model outputs beyond the time range of the measured data.
