Compute filter estimates for input using RLS adaptive filter algorithm
The RLS Adaptive Filter block is still supported but is likely to be obsoleted in a future release. We strongly recommend replacing this block with the RLS Filter block.
The RLS Adaptive Filter block recursively computes the recursive least squares (RLS) estimate of the FIR filter coefficients.
The corresponding RLS filter is expressed in matrix form as
where λ-1 denotes the reciprocal of the exponential weighting factor. The variables are as follows
The current algorithm iteration
The buffered input samples at step n
The inverse correlation matrix at step n
The gain vector at step n
The vector of filter-tap estimates at step n
The filtered output at step n
The estimation error at step n
The desired response at step n
The exponential memory weighting factor
The block icon has port labels corresponding to the inputs and outputs of the RLS
algorithm. Note that inputs to the
ports must be sample-based scalars. The signal at the
Out port is a
scalar, while the signal at the
Taps port is a sample-based

u, the scalar input, which is internally buffered into the vector u(n)
y(n), the filtered scalar output
e(n), the scalar estimation error
, the vector of filter-tap estimates
Adapt input port is added when you select the
Adapt input check box in the dialog box. When this port is
enabled, the block continuously adapts the filter coefficients while the
Adapt input is nonzero. A zero-valued input to the
Adapt port causes the block to stop adapting, and to hold the
filter coefficients at their current values until the next nonzero
The implementation of the algorithm in the block is optimized by exploiting the symmetry of the inverse correlation matrix P(n). This decreases the total number of computations by a factor of two.
The FIR filter length parameter specifies the length of the
filter that the RLS algorithm estimates. The Memory weighting
factor corresponds to λ in the equations, and specifies how quickly the
filter “forgets” past sample information. Setting λ=

The Initial value of filter taps specifies the initial value as a vector, or as a scalar to be repeated for all vector elements. The initial value of P(n) is
where you specify in the Initial input variance estimate parameter.
