Examples and How To

Estimate Frequency-Response Models in the App

You must have already imported your data into the app and performed any necessary preprocessing operations.

Estimate Frequency-Response Models at the Command Line

You can use the etfe, spa, and spafdr commands to estimate spectral models.


What is a Frequency-Response Model?

A frequency-response model is the frequency response of a linear system evaluated over a range of frequency values.

Data Supported by Frequency-Response Models

Characteristics of data supported for estimation of spectral analysis models.

Selecting the Method for Computing Spectral Models
