This paper presents a new approach to extremum seeking control for a class of single-input-single-output nonlinear systems. With the analytic form of the performance function unknown a priori, a sliding mode observer is designed to estimate the gradient of the performance map. Based on the estimated gradient, a variable structure controller is proposed to search for the optimal operating point. We establish the conditions for the system states to enter a neighborhood of the optimal operating
