Abstract

The prime purpose of this thesis project is to investigate and to implement Kohr's method. Kohr's method of identification was selected for study mainly because of the easy accessibility of the analog computer, in addition to the other advantages mentioned above. In this thesis the method of Kohr is shown to apply to the identification of single-valued nonlinearities. However, it is also shown in the work to follow that the method does not apply, in general, to double-valued nonlinearities. Further, an extension of this method is developed herein which enables the determination of system order. A number of examples illustrating the implementation of the method, its restriction, and extension are given in the thesis.
