The class of Wiener-Hammerstein systems can be generalized to parallel Wiener-Hammerstein systems. Parallel Wiener-Hammerstein systems consist of a parallel connection of different Wiener-Hammerstein systems. An identification method for parallel Wiener-Hammerstein systems is presented. First, the overall dynamics are estimated in least squares sense. Second, these dynamics are decomposed over the parallel branches, and partitioned over the front and the back LTI blocks using a brute force scan. Finally, the static nonlinearities are estimated using a linear least squares estimator. The proposed method provides good initial estimates, which are refined in a nonlinear optimization step.
