This letter is concerned with the parameter estimation of linear and nonlinear subsystems of parallel-cascade Wiener systems (PCWS). We first present the relationship between a PCWS and its associated Volterra model. We show that the coefficients of the linear subsystems can be obtained using a joint diagonalization of the third-order Volterra kernel slices. Then, the coefficients of the nonlinear subsystems are estimated using the least square algorithm. The proposed parameter estimation method is illustrated by means of simulation results.
