We address the problem of optimal sensor location for monitoring the eigenstructure of a multivariable dynamical system. The criterions which are optimized are the power of new tests designed for detecting and diagnosing changes in the eigencharacteristics of a system [3], [12]. The key points are the choice of the parameterization for computing the criterion and the comparison of designs with a different number of sensors. The discussion of the numerical results for sensor location includes the analysis of the effect of the geometry of the unknown excitation.
