This paper presents an identification technique based on linear recurrent neural network to identify spatially interconnected systems both in open and closed-loop form. The latter has not been addressed in the literature for the systems under consideration. The paper considers identification of two-dimensional (time and space) systems; the method can be easily extended to have more than one dimension in space. In this paper we consider a semi-causal (causal in time and non-causal in space) two-dimensional (2-D) system, which may be separable or non-separable but the method can also be used for 2-D systems which are causal in both dimensions. Furthermore the algorithm can handle boundary conditions. The effectiveness of the method is shown with application to simulation examples.
