This paper discusses the estimation of the parameters of a single input, single output (SISO) process, modelled in first order lag plus delay (FOLPD) form, using gradient methods in the open loop time domain. The paper considers the convergence of the process parameters to the model parameters. The convergence of the model delay is discussed first, when the non-delay model and process parameters are identical. The convergence of all of the model parameters is then considered, when all of the process parameters are unknown.
