Abstract. The conditions providing high accuracy of the Kalman filter in transition regime are considered. Relations between the respective values of parameters of state equations and measurement are determined. A simple rule for preliminary evaluation of the transition process nature is formulated. By the example of practically important problem of Kalman estimation of exponentially-correlated random process, application of the proposed rules is illustrated by presented calculations with different initial data.
Keywords: transition regime, Kalman filter, steady-state filter mode, estimation accuracy
