Discrete-time Solutions to the Continuous-time Differential Lyapunov Equation With Applications to Kalman Filtering
2012 (English)Report (Other academic)
Prediction and filtering of continuous-time stochastic processes require a solver of a continuous-time differential Lyapunov equation (CDLE). Even though this can be recast into an ordinary differential equation (ODE), where standard solvers can be applied, the dominating approach in Kalman filter applications is to discretize the system and then apply the discrete-time difference Lyapunov equation (DDLE). To avoid problems with stability and poor accuracy, oversampling is often used. This contribution analyzes over-sampling strategies, and proposes a low-complexity analytical solution that does not involve oversampling. The results are illustrated on Kalman filtering problems in both linear and nonlinear systems.
