It was shown recently that parameter estimation can be performed directly in the time-scale domain by isolating regions wherein the prediction error can be attributed to the error of individual dynamic model parameters [1]. Based on these single-parameter attributions of the prediction error, individual parameter errors can be estimated for iterative parameter estimation. A benefit of relying entirely on the time-scale domain for parameter estimation is the added capacity for noise suppression. This paper explores this benefit by introducing a noise compensation method that estimates the distortion by noise of the prediction error in the time-scale domain and incorporates it as a confidence factor when estimating individual parameter errors. This method is shown to further improve the estimated parameters beyond the time-filtering and denoising techniques developed for time-based estimation.
