Generalized adaptive notch filters are used for identification/tracking of quasi-periodically varying dynamic systems and can be considered an extension, to the system case, of classical adaptive notch filters. When system frequencies drift according to the random walk model, the generalized adaptive notch filtering algorithms yield unbiased frequency estimates. However, the situation changes under more realstic frequency variation scenarios. We show that when system frequencies change in a smooth way, the estimation bias can be substantially reduced by means of postfiltering of the frequency estimates. The modified (debiased) algorithm has better tracking capabilities than the original algorithm.
