A novel method is presented for the identification of a continuous-time bilinear system from the input-output data generated by a single experiment with multiple pulses. In contrast to the conventional approach utilizing multiple experiments, the current work documents the advantage of using a single experiment and sets up a procedure to obtain bilinear system models. The special pulse inputs employed by earlier research can be avoided and accurate identification of the continuous-time system model is possible by performing a single experiment incorporating a class of control input sequences combining pulses with free-decay in between. The algorithm presented here-in is more attractive in practice for the identification of bilinear systems. Numerical examples presented demonstrate the methodology developed in the paper.
