Abstract: In this paper an evolutionary optimisation methodology based on social emotional optimisation algorithm (SEOA) is applied to the infinite impulse response (IIR) system identification problem. In SEOA methodology, behaviour of human beings for achieving higher social status in society is structured. In this virtual world, the individual with the highest rank in society gives the optimal solution in multidimensional search space. Earning the highest social status by means of cooperation and competition with others not only results in better exploration and exploitation of problem space but also ensures faster convergence to optimal solution. The proposed SEOA based system identification approach has resolved the inherent drawbacks of premature convergence and stagnation, unlike genetic algorithm (GA), particle swarm optimisation (PSO) and differential evolution (DE). The simulation results obtained for some well known benchmark examples justify the efficacy of the proposed system identification approach using SEOA over GA, PSO and DE in terms of convergence speed, unknown plant coefficients and mean square error (MSE) values produced for both the same order and reduced order models of adaptive IIR filters.
