Abstract [en]

In this thesis a quadrotor is studied and a linear model is derived using grey-box estimation, a discipline in system identification where a model structure based on physical relations is used and the parameters are estimated using input-output measurements. From IMU measurements and measured PWM signals to the four motors, a direct approach using the prediction-error method is applied. To investigate the impact of the unknown controller the two-stage method, a closed-loop approach in system identification,  is applied as well. The direct approach was enough for estimating the model parameters. The resulting model manages to simulate the major dynamics for the vertical acceleration and the angular rates well enough  for future control design.
