Adaptive identification of the bandpass finite impulse response (FIR) filtering system is proposed through this paper using variable step-size least mean square (VSS-LMS) algorithm called absolute average error-based adjusted step-size LMS as an adapted algorithm. This algorithm used to design an adaptive FIR filter by calculating the absolute averaged value for the recently assessed error with the previous one. Then, the step size has been attuned accordingly with consideration of the slick transition of the step size from bigger to smaller to score an achievement through high convergence rate and low steady-state misadjustment over the other algorithms used for the same purpose. The simulation results through the computer demonstrate remarkable performance compared to the traditional algorithm of LMS and another VSS-LMS algorithm (normalized LMS) which used in this paper for the designed filter. The powerful of the filter has been served in the identification system, bandpass filter has been chosen to be identified in the proposed adaptive system identification. It reports conceivable enhancements in the modeling system concerning the time of convergence, which is well-defined as a fast and steady-state adjustment defined with a low level. The designed filter identified the indefinite system with less than 10 samples; meanwhile, other algorithms were taking more than 20 samples for identification. Alongside the fine behavior of preserving the tradeoff between miss adjustment and the capability of tracking, the fewer calculations and computations regarding the algorithm requirement make the applied real-time striking.
