Abstract : This final technical report describes the results obtained by SIGNATRON, Inc. of Lexington MA on Air Force Contract F30602-80-C-0104 for Rome Air Development Center. The objective of this effort is to develop a technique for identifying system response of nonlinear circuits by measurements of output response to known inputs. The report describes results of a study into the system identification technique based on the pencil-of-function method previously explored by Jain (1974) and Ewen (1979). The procedure identified roles of the linear response and is intended as a first step in nonlinear response and is intended as a first step in nonlinear circuit identification. There are serious implementation problems associated with the original approach such as loss of accuracy due to repeated integrations, lack of good measures of accuracy and computational iteration to identify the number of poles.
