In this study, the respiratory system are modelled by three linear and one non-linear lumped parameter respiratory model, the equations of the models are driven and the parameters are estimated by using statistical signal processing methods. Linear RIC, Viscoelastic and Mead models and proposed basic non-linear RC model are used to resemble the respiratory system of the patient with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) under non-invasive ventilation. Statistical signal processing methods such as Minimum Variance Unbiased Estimation (MVUE), Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE), Kalman Filter (KF), Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) and Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) are very powerful methods to estimate the parameters of the systems embedded in the unknown noise.
