Studies on iterative identification and model based control design have shown the necessity for identifying models on the basis of closed-loop data. Estimating models on the basis of closed-loop data requires special attention due to cross correlation of noise and input signals and the possibility to estimate unstable systems operating under a stabilizing closed-loop controller. This paper provides a method to perform an approximate identification of normalized coprime factorization from closed-loop data. During the identification, a constrained linear regression parametrization is used to estimate the normalized coprime factors. A servomechanism case study illustrates the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
