This paper presents a tutorial on system identification using fractional differentiation models. The tutorial starts with some general aspects on time and frequency-domain representations, time-domain simulation, and stability of fractional models. Then, an overview of system identification methods using fractional models is presented. Both equation-error and output-error-based models are detailed. In the former models, a priori knowledge is generally used to fix differentiation orders; model coefficients are estimated using least squares. The latter models allow simultaneous estimation of model's coefficients and differentiation orders carried out using non linear programming techniques. Copyright 2006 IFAC.
