This paper mainly studies the identification problem of the single-output two-input error system. A hierarchical least squares algorithm is derived by combining the model decomposition skill and the principle of hierarchical identification. The basic idea of the derived identification method is to decompose the system into two subsystems and identify the parameter vector of each subsystem separately. Compared with the auxiliary model least squares (AM-RLS) algorithm, the proposed two-stage recursive least squares (TS-RLS) algorithm has lower computational cost and higher estimation accuracy. Furthermore, the convergence of the TS-RLS algorithm is analyzed, which can guarantee the stability of the algorithm and make it more suitable for various practical application scenarios. Finally, a numerical example is presented to illustrate the validity of the derived approach.
