Design of delayed fractional state variable filter for parameter estimation of fractional nonlinear models
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThis paper presents a novel direct parameter estimation method for continuous-time fractional nonlinear models. This is achieved by adapting a filter-based approach that uses the delayed fractional state variable filter for estimating the nonlinear model parameters directly from the measured sampled input–output data. A class of fractional nonlinear ordinary differential equation models is considered, where the nonlinear terms are linear with respect to the parameters. The nonlinear model equations are reformulated such that it allows a linear estimator to be used for estimating the model parameters. The required fractional time derivatives of measured input–output data are computed by a proposed delayed fractional state variable filter. The filter comprises of a cascade of all-pass filters and a fractional Butterworth filter, which forms the core part of the proposed parameter estimation method. The presented approaches for designing the fractional Butterworth filter are the so-called, square root base and compartmental fractional Butterworth design. According to the results, the parameters of the fractional-order nonlinear ordinary differential model converge to the true values and the estimator performs efficiently for the output error noise structure.

Parameter estimation of the fractional-order Hammerstein–Wiener model using simplified refined instrumental variable fractional-order continuous timeAllafi, Walid; Zajic, Ivan; Uddin, Kotub; Burnham, Keith J. (The Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2017-07-05)This study proposes a direct parameter estimation approach from observed input–output data of a stochastic single-input–single-output fractional-order continuous-time Hammerstein–Wiener model by extending a well known iterative simplified refined instrumental variable method. The method is an extension of the simplified refined instrumental variable method developed for the linear fractional-order continuous-time system, denoted. The advantage of this novel extension, compared with published methods, is that the static output non-linearity of the Wiener model part does not need to be invertible. The input and output static non-linear functions are represented by a sum of the known basis functions. The proposed approach estimates the parameters of the linear fractional-order continuous-time subsystem and the input and output static non-linear functions from the sampled input–output data by considering the system to be a multi-input–single-output linear fractional-order continuous-time model. These extra inputs represent the basis functions of the static input and output non-linearity, where the output basis functions are simulated according to the previous estimates of the fractional-order linear subsystem and the static input non-linear function at every iteration. It is also possible to estimate the classical integer-order model counterparts as a special case. Subsequently, the proposed extension to the simplified refined instrumental variable method is considered in the classical integer-order continuous-time Hammerstein–Wiener case. In this paper, a Monte Carlo simulation analysis is applied for demonstrating the performance of the proposed approach to estimate the parameters of a fractional-order Hammerstein–Wiener output model.
Antidiabetic activities of chloroform fraction of Anthocleista vogelii Planch root bark in rats with diet- and alloxan-induced obesity-diabetesAnyanwu, Gabriel O.; Iqbal, Jamshed; Khan, Shafi U.; Zaib, Sumera; Rauf, Khalid; Onyeneke, Chukwu E.; Ojo, Opeolu (Elsevier, 2018-10-18)ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Anthocleista vogelii Planch is a medicinal plant traditionally used in West Africa for the management and treatment of diabetes mellitus. AIM OF THE STUDY: To determine the antidiabetic activities of chloroform fraction (CF) of Anthocleista vogelii Planch root bark in rats with diet- and alloxan-induced obesity-diabetes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Inhibitory activities of CF against α-amylase and α-glucosidase activities were determined in vitro. Three weeks old rats were fed with high-fat diet for 9 weeks to induce obesity prior to further induction of diabetes using alloxan (150 mg/kg body weight, i.p.). Blood glucose levels and body weight were measured every 7 days throughout the experiment. Glucose tolerance was assessed in normal and CF-treated rats on day 21. Terminal blood samples were collected from sacrificed animals for the measurement of serum insulin levels. Pancreases were excised from treated and untreated animals for histopathological examination. RESULTS: LCMS/MS chromatographic profile of CF via positive and negative modes revealed 13 and 23 compounds respectively. Further analysis revealed quebrachitol (QCT), loganin, sweroside, oleoside 11-methyl ester and ferulic acid, which have been previously reported for their antidiabetic activities, as constituents of CF. CF inhibited activities of α-amylase (IC50 = 51.60 ± 0.92 µg/ml) and α-glucosidase (IC50 = 5.86 ± 0.97 µg/ml) in a dose-dependent manner. Treatment of animals with obesity-diabetes with 100 and 200 mg/kg CF significantly improved glucose tolerance (P < 0.001) and enhanced serum insulin levels (P < 0.05) compared to diabetic control rats. CONCLUSIONS: Antidiabetic activities of CF might be mediated via inhibition of α-amylase and α-glucosidase activities, elevation of serum insulin concentration, and enhancement of insulin and leptin sensitivity in obesity-diabetes rats. This study further substantiates the traditional use of A. vogelii in the management and treatment of diabetes in Africa and encourages further studies to investigate its mechanism of action.
Dry powder inhalers: physicochemical and aerosolization properties of several size-fractions of a promising alterative carrier, freeze-dried mannitol.Kaialy, Waseem; Nokhodchi, Ali (Elsevier, 2015-02-20)The purpose of this work was to evaluate the physicochemical and inhalation characteristics of different size fractions of a promising carrier, i.e., freeze-dried mannitol (FDM). FDM was prepared and sieved into four size fractions. FDMs were then characterized in terms of micromeritic, solid-state and bulk properties. Dry powder inhaler (DPI) formulations were prepared using salbutamol sulphate (SS) and then evaluated in terms of drug content homogeneity and in vitro aerosolization performance. The results showed that the crystalline state of mannitol was maintained following freeze-drying for all size fractions of FDM. All FDM particles showed elongated morphology and contained mixtures of α-, β- and δ-mannitol. In comparison to small FDM particles, FDMs with larger particle sizes demonstrated narrower size distributions, higher bulk and tap densities, lower porosities and better flowability. Regardless of particle size, all FDMs generated a significantly higher (2.2-2.9-fold increase) fine particle fraction (FPF, 37.5 ± 0.9%-48.6 ± 2.8%) of SS in comparison to commercial mannitol. The FPFs of SS were related to the shape descriptors of FDM particles; however, FPFs did not prove quantitative apparent relationships with either particle size or powder bulk descriptors. Large FDM particles were more favourable than smaller particles because they produced DPI formulations with better flowability, better drug content homogeneity, lower amounts of the drug depositing on the throat and contained lower fine-particle-mannitol. Optimized stable DPI formulations with superior physicochemical and pharmaceutical properties can be achieved using larger particles of freeze-dried mannitol (FDM).
