A basic assumption on the data used for nonlinear dynamic model identification is that the data points are continuously collected in chronological order. However, there are situations in practice where this assumption does not hold and we end up with an identification problem from multiple data sets. The problem is addressed in this paper and a new cross-validation-based orthogonal search algorithm for NARMAX model identification from multiple data sets is proposed. The algorithm aims at identifying a single model from multiple data sets so as to extend the applicability of the standard method in the cases, such as the data sets for identification are obtained from multiple tests or a series of experiments, or the data set is discontinuous because of missing data points. The proposed method can also be viewed as a way to improve the performance of the standard orthogonal search method for model identification by making full use of all the available data segments in hand. Simulated and real data are used in this paper to illustrate the operation and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
