Abstract : "This paper studies the maximum likelihood identification problems of the bilinear-in-parameter outputerror systems with colored noise. A hierarchical maximum likelihood gradient-based iterative (H-MLGI) algorithm, a filtering hierarchical maximum likelihood gradient-based iterative (F-H-MLGI) algorithm and a filtering hierarchical maximum likelihood multi-innovation gradient-based iterative (F-H-ML-MIGI) algorithm are developed for a bilinear-in-parameter output-error system by using the data filtering technique and multi-innovation identification theory. The analysis shows that compared with the H-MLGI algorithm, the F-H-MLGI algorithm can improve the parameter estimation accuracy. Additionally, the F-H-ML-MIGI can give more accurate parameter estimates than the F-H-MLGI algorithm and can track time-varying parameters based on the dynamical window data. The performances of the proposed identification algorithms are illustrated through simulation example.
