It is shown that delineation of output sensitivities with respect to model parameters in dynamic models can be enhanced in the time-scale domain. This enhanced differentiation of output sensitivities then provides the capacity to isolate regions of the time-scale plane wherein a single output sensitivity dominates the others. Due to this dominance, the prediction error can be attributed to the error of a single parameter at these regions so as to estimate each model parameter error separately. The proposed Parameter Signature Isolation Method (PARSIM) that uses these parameter error estimates for parameter adaptation has been found to have an adaptation precision comparable to that of the Gauss-Newton method for noise-free cases. PARSIM, however, appears to be less sensitive to input conditions, while offering the promise of more effective noise suppression by the capabilities available in the time-scale domain.
