Abstract

Quite often there is a need to extend available qualitative and quantitative knowledge by applying experimentation on a real system, i.e. to influence the system, and to observe and interprete the resulting effect. System experimentation requires that control inputs and observation outputs are present, or can be made available with an appropriate degree of controllability and observability. Experiments can be done by means of a “measuring and control” system, what we will call further on a companion system or briefly cosystem ay. System and cosystem together form the experimentation system esy. An experimental run may yield a trajectory {u(t),y(t)} over some time interval of a control input signal u(t) and the corresponding observation output signal y(t).
