Estimating a Wiener filter manually in Matlab

  1. Jan 15, 2013 #1
    Hi all!

    I am currently trying to calculate a Wiener filter for a stochastic system. The model is an ARX with determined parameters.

    Where I am:
    I have access to the transfer functions of the ARX model.
    I need to calculate the optimal causal filter:

    I know that:
    where Sx(s) is the power spectral density of the output signal and Sn(s) is the power spectral density of the aditive noise. To find Sx and Sn I found the square root of the absolute value of the transfer functions of the model and the noise filter respectively, in the jω domain.

    I have the whitening filter (1/Fi(s)), I determined Fi(s) by taking out all poles and zeros on the right plane of Fi(s)Fi(-s).

    Is the bode diagram of the whitening filter supposed to be the symetric, relative to magnitude, of the bode diagram of the noise filter of the model?

    Now I have to determine:
    I have Sx(s) and Fi(-s), but my question is how do I determine the transfer function of the non-causal part only? I know I could use partial fraction expansion by hand but my Sx(s) and Sn(s) have 12th order polynomials so I will certainly not go that way.

    Please help.
    Thank you.
