Eigensystem Realization Algoirthm with Mode Condensation Algorithm. Example file is provided for the identification of 2DOF system subject to impulse excitation with added uncertainty (gaussian white noise).
function [Result] = ERA_CONDENSED(Y,fs,ncols,nrows,inputs,initialcut,maxcut,shift,EMAC_option,LimCMI,LimMAC,LimFreq,Plot_option)
Y: Free vibration output data in a form of Y=[Y1 Y2 ... Y_Ndata] Yi is Markov Parameter of size (outputs,inputs) and the total size is (outputs,inputs*Ndata)
where outputs is the number of output channels, inputs is the number of inputs which equals to 1 unless free vibration data comes from Multi-reference channels NExT.
Ndata is the length of the data samples
fs: Sampling frequency
ncols: The number of columns in hankel matrix (more than 2/3 of No. of data)
nrows: The number of rows in hankel matrix (more than 20 * number of modes)
inputs: The number of inputs which equals to 1 unless free vibration data comes from Multi-reference channels NExT
initialcut: initial cutoff value of mode order
maxcut: maximium cutoff value of mode order
shift: Shift value in the final row and column blocks (Increase EMAC sensitivity) usually =10
EMAC_option: if this value equals to 1, EMAC will be independent of the number of columns (calculated only from observability matrix not from controllability)
LimCMI: Minmium allowable CMI for modes
LimMAC & LimFreq: Minimium value of MAC and maximium value of frequency difference to assume two modes are referring to the same real mode
Plot_option: if 1 plots stabilization diagram
Result: A structure consist of the below components
Parameters: NaFreq : Natural frequencies vector
DampRatio: Damping ratios vector
ModeShape: Mode shape matrix
Indicators: MAmC : Modal Amplitude Coherence
EMAC: Extended Modal Amplitude Coherence
MPC: Modal Phase Collinearity
CMI: Consistent Mode Indicator
