In this paper, we present a new signal frequency estimation method based on the sinusoidal additive synthesis model. In the proposed method, frequencies in both the signal and noise are estimated with several delay times by using an expanded linear prediction (LP) method, and assuming that the signal is stationary and noise is unstationary in short record length. Frequencies in the signal are extracted according to their dependence on different delays. The frequency estimation can be accomplished with short record length even in the case where the number of frequency components in the signal is unknown. And it is capable of estimating the frequencies of a signal in the presence of noise. Furthermore, the proposed method estimates the parameters with less computation and high estimation accuracy. Simulation results are provided to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method. The comparison of estimation accuracy between the proposed method and the analysis by synthesis (ABS) method is shown with the corresponding Cramer-Rao lower bound. And the frequency resolution of this method is also shown.
