In this paper, we perform theoretical and experimental studies of parameter estimation based on chaos feedback synchronization. The Chua chaotic system is applied as the original system, and its time series of a single variable is applied as a feedback variable to drive a simulative system. The simplex method is employed to minimize the synchronization error in the simulative system to iteratively approach the original system parameters. Furthermore, the effects of feedback function, feedback weight, and noise are investigated. The parameter estimation method based on feedback synchronization shows its robustness to noise perturbation. Finally, the circuit experiment of parameter estimation is implemented in order to examine its practical applicability. The original Chua circuit parameters can be well approached from its recorded time series of a single variable. The results show the parameter estimation method based on feedback synchronization may be capable of estimating real system parameters from a chaotic time series.
