The present paper proposes a technique to identify systems with discontinuous nonlinearities. A well-established maximum likelihood estimation method has been suitably extended for this purpose. The technique enjoys the desired properties of consistency, efficiency, and unbiased estimates associated with the maximum likelihood estimation. The estimation method has been illustrated using a second-order dynamic system which incorporates specific nonlinear elements viz.: hysteresis and deadband plus saturation. Effects of additive noise on the parameter estimates have also been presented. Practical utility of the technique has been demonstrated in identifying from flight test data the discontinuous nonlinear effects in the control surface actuator system of an aircraft. (Author)
