Identification of hysteretic systems using the differential evolution algorithm
(Affiliation: Dept. of Mechanichal Engineering, University of Sheffield, Mappin Street, Sheffield S1 3JD, United KingdomCorrespondence Address: Kyprianou, A.Dept. of Mechanichal Engineering, University of Sheffield, Mappin Street, Sheffield S1 3JD, United Kingdomemail: Mep96Gak@sheffield.ac.uk, 1998)In system identification, it is wellknown that any nonlinear in the parameters system, possesses a complicated error surface with many local minima. In this case the conventional algorithms, such as those based on least ...
