ARMA Model Order Estimation

Started by Anh Tuan Phan July 11, 2013
Hi everyone,

I have a problem and I hope to receive your help: 

I am applying Adaptive Prony's Method to identify spectrum of a non-stationary signal (the signal I am processing is piece-wise stationary). Adaptive Prony's Method models each of the stationary intervals as an AutoRegressive-Moving-Average process and from that, we can find the power spectrum for each stationary interval. However, the method requires the model order for each stationary interval to be known in advance, and this is the problem perplexing me. I hope that you could introduce me a method that can help to estimate the model order for a set of samples, and the related matlab command, if it is available. 

Thank you so much and sorry for my English.

Increase model order until you reach desired accuracy; or until increasing order substantially improves accuracy. Vladimir Vassilevsky DSP and Mixed Signal Designs www.abvolt.com
