Hello,
I'm trying to describe an Impedance measured over a few frequencies
points as a combination of resistors/capacitors, using the invfreqs
function. But the underlying system is comprised of a pair of
electrodes, and some biological medium, so the impedance contains a
so-called Warburg element, that is, a capacitor in parallel with a
resistor, where the phase angle is constant (45 °) and the product of
R and C is equal to 1/f.
When I plot the impedance locus (real part, imaginary part), it is
obvious that there is something going wrong with the approximation
using constant R and C. Did someone already coped with this, coming to
some iterative method permitting to extract the Warburg element and
progressively come to a good approximation of the measured impedance.
TIA
