This paper presents a robust-control-oriented system identification method aiming to minimize the normalized coprime factor uncertainty of the performance-weighted system. The nominal model and the normalized coprime factor uncertainty bound are estimated employing a filter bank approach, which approximately calculates the chordal distance between the identified model and the true system in the frequency range of interest. An iterative LMI optimization is formulated to identify the model coefficients. The optimal stability margin is also calculated and compared to the identified nominal uncertainty bound to decide if re-identification is necessary.
