In this letter, a combined method based on the fractional linear and the fractional bilinear time-frequency representations (TFRs) is proposed. The method combines the windowed fractional short-time Fourier transform with the fractional Wigner distribution (WD) to estimate the instantaneous frequency (IF) of signals in the appropriate fractional time-frequency domain. For a multi-component signal, the method can significantly eliminate the cross terms and improve the time-frequency resolution of the auto-terms. It is applied to the detection and parameter estimation of linear frequency modulated (LFM) signals. The computer simulations clearly demonstrate that the method is effective.
