This paper describes a technique for modeling and identifying a class of nonlinear servomechanism systems with stick-slip friction. The physics of the stick-slip friction is considered in modeling the process. Identification of the system parameters is formulated as a nonlinear optimization problem. A modified simplex algorithm is proposed as the optimization procedure. The difficulties encountered in choosing identification algorithm and input signals for the problem are discussed. A simulation example of a servomotor system is provided.
