There are several methods — fixed, adaptive, recursive — for the identification of linear and bilinear systems from input-output measurements that are noisy. However, literature is rather scarce as far as such techniques are concerned for the identification of nonlinear systems. The objective of this paper, therefore, is to suggest an iterative technique for the identification of nonlinear system parameters from measurements that are noisy. This technique requires the transformation of a nonlinear system in the state variable form into an input-output autoregressive moving average exogenous (armax) model. The pseudo linear regression algorithm, which has been extensively used for the identification of linear systems, can then be used to identify the nonlinear system parameters. Using this technique simulation studies were carried out which, indeed, confirm the efficacy of the method.
