To enhance the performance in IIR system identification scenarios, a hybrid combination of FIR and IIR adaptive filters (AFs) via a supervisor that senses which one is performing best is proposed. The FIR-LMS AF is short, providing fast and robust convergence, whereas the IIR-LMS AF is slow but accurate. The stagnation effect caused by the different convergence rates is tackled through cyclic weight transfers FIR → IIR, which also ensure good tracking properties. A design technique for the transfers cycle length is proposed, providing good convergence while keeping computational cost low.
