Hammerstein Toolbox

Rapid estimation of the structural elements composing a cascade of Hammerstein models.

In a number of vibration applications, systems under study are slightly non-linear. Cascade of Hammerstein models conveniently allows one to describe such systems.
The Hammerstein Toolbox provides a simple method based on a phase property of exponential sine sweeps
to estimate the structural elements (Kernels) of such a model from only one measured response of the system.

If I want to verify the method on some general input signal, I get a scaling problem. I use :
for n = 1:order
yN = yN + convq(hhatN(n,:),xN.^n) ;
with xN being some jump function, for example.
