[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Buildings, consuming over 70% of the electricity in the U.S., play significant roles in smart grid infrastructure. The automatic operation of buildings and their subsystems in responding to signals from a smart grid is essential to reduce energy consumption and demand, as well as improve the resilience to power disruptions. In order to achieve such automatic operation, high fidelity and computationally efficiency building energy forecasting models under different weather and operation conditions are needed. Currently, data-driven (black box) models and hybrid (grey box) models are commonly used in model based building control operation. However, typical black box models often require long training period and are bounded to weather and operation conditions during the training period. On the other hand, creating a grey box model often requires long calculation time due to parameter optimization process and expert knowledge during the model structure determining and simplification process. An earlier study by the authors proposed a system identification approach to develop computationally efficient and accurate building energy forecasting models. This paper attempts to extend this early study and to quantitatively evaluate how the most important characteristics of a building energy system: its nonlinearity and response time, affect the system identification process and model accuracy. Two commercial building: a small-size and a medium-size commercial building, with varying chiller nonlinearity, are simulated using EnergyPlus in lieu of real buildings for model development and validation. The system identification method proposed in the early study is applied to these two buildings that have varying nonlinearity and response time. Adaption of the proposed system identification method based on systems??? nonlinearity and response time is proposed in this study. The energy forecasting results demonstrate that the adaption is capable of significantly improve the performan- e of the system identification model.

"(C) and (D) Learning the dimensionality and dynamics, via subspace identification  of a linear neural network of size N = 5000 from spontaneous noise driven activity. The low-rank connectivity of the network forces the system to lie in a K = 6 dimensional subspace. "
"The problem of going from data to models is the usual system identification problem. Several approaches have been proposed in the literature ranging from standard prediction error methods , to iterative solutions based on EM , to the more recent subspace methods . For the case of dynamic textures, due to the dimension of the signal (76,800 for video at half-resolution), one cannot apply standard identification algorithms. "
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In this expository paper we illustrate the use of filtering and identification-theoretic techniques in a number of problems in computer vision. We first demonstrate how linear system identification techniques combined with distances for linear systems can be used for modeling, synthesis, classification and recognition of dynamic textures and human gaits. We then show how hybrid system identification techniques can be used for segmentation of dynamic textures. We also highlight some open problems in system identification that are motivated by extensions of the research described in this paper.
