One of the subjects which has received a great deal of attention is the overparameterization problem. It is known that the dynamical performance of the model representations deteriorates if the respective model structure is too complex. This paper investigates the problem of model overparameterization. Two new types of overparameterization, fixed-point and dimension overparameterization are introduced and based upon this a new procedure for improving structure detection of nonlinear models is developed. This procedure uses all the information from the cluster cancellation and the location of the fixed points. Numerous examples are given to illustrate the ideas.
