In this contribution a new procedure for input design for identification of linear multivariable systems is proposed. The goal is to minimize the input power used in the system identification experiment. The quality constraint on the estimated model is formulated in H-infty. The input design problem is converted to linear matrix inequalities by a separation of graphs theorem. For illustration, the proposed method is applied on a chemical distillation column and the result shows that it is optimal to amplify the low gain direction of the plant.
