Abstract: This paper aims at developing an iterative method which permits to estimate the parameters of single-input single-output (SISO) large-scale nonlinear systems, described by Hammerstein mathematical models. We particularly focus on the dynamic large-scale nonlinear systems, which are made up of several interconnected nonlinear monovariable subsystems. Each subsystem can operate in a stochastic environment and be described by a discrete-time Hammerstein mathematical model with known structure variables (order, delay) and unknown time-varying parameters. The problem formulation is achieved based on the prediction error method and the least-squares techniques. The convergence analysis of the recursive algorithm is provided using the differential equation approach and its performance is illustrated by treating two simulation examples.

Keywords: large-scale nonlinear systems; stochastic systems; mathematical modelling; Hammerstein models; parametric estimation; convergence analysis; simulation; hydraulic processes; hydraulics; single-input single-output; SISO systems.
