We are investigating ways to test a control algorithm. The algorithm has a non-equidistant track of input data (i.e. not every sample is valid, and we know it), and should output a series of correction factors.
Under a certain frequency, it should correct for a deteriorating light source.
Is there a way to black-box test the algorithm's transfer function? I'm having trouble especially with the fact that it's non-equidistant.
The goal of the tests would be to have a clear idea on the algorithm's behavior in terms of
- delay/phase response
- frequency response
So I was actually dreaming of a kind of a 'swept sine' test, or an impulse response, or something alike, but I'm a bit lost in what is feasible with non-equidistant signals.
