A method based on projection filters is presented for identifying an open-loop stochastic system with an existing feedback controller. The projection filters are derived from the relationship between the state-space model and the AutoRegressive with eXogeneous input (ARX) model including the system, Kalman filter and controller. Two ARX models are identified from the control input, closed-loop system response and feedback signal using least-squares method. Markov parameters of the open-loop system, Kalman filter and controller are then calculated from the coefficients of the identified ARX models. Finally, the state-space model of the open-loop stochastic system and the gain matrices for the Kalman filter and controller are realized. The method is validated by simulations and test data from an unstable large-angle magnetic suspension test facility.
