This paper develops a multistage least squares based iterative algorithm to estimate the parameters of feedback nonlinear systems with moving average noise from input–output data. Since that the identification model is bilinear on the unknown parameter space, the solution is to decompose a system into several subsystems with each of which is linear about its parameter vector, then to replace the unknown noise terms in the information vectors with their corresponding estimates at the previous iteration of each subsystem, and estimate each subsystem, respectively. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can work well.
