Some observations and improvements on the conventional Kalman filtering scheme to function properly are presented. The improvements can be achieved using the minimal principle evolutionary programming (EP) technique. A new linearization methodology is presented to obtain the exact linear models of a class of discrete-time nonlinear time-invariant systems at operating states of interest, so that the conventional Kalman filter can work for the nonlinear stochastic systems. Furthermore, a Kalman innovation filtering algorithm and such an algorithm based on the evolutionary programming optimal-search technique are proposed in for discrete-time time-invariant nonlinear stochastic systems with unknown-but-bounded plant uncertainties and noise uncertainties to find a practically implementable best Kalman filter. The worst-case realization of the discrete-time nonlinear stochastic uncertain systems represented by the interval form with respect to the implemented best nominal filter is also found for demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed filtering scheme.
