Parent Command
all third-level commands in block > OBSERVATION

Subcommand
-

Description
Represents observed data by a polynomial of degree idegree:

z(t)=Sum(Ai* ti ) i=0,...,idegree

where t denotes time in time_units (default is seconds), and Ai are the idegree+1 coefficients which are read in free format on the lines following the command line.

Example
> OBSERVATION
>> LIQUID FLOW
>>> CONNECTION: A1__1 A1__2
>>>> TIME SHIFT: 5 MINUTES
>>>> conversion FACTOR: 1.6667E-02 [kg/min] - [kg/sec]
>>>> POLYNOM of degree: 1 (linear function), time in MINUTES
2.34 -0.03 = coefficients of linear regression through data given in [min] and [kg/min]
>>>> standard DEVIATION: 0.01 kg/min
