A method is presented to obtain state estimates for a possibly nonminimum-phase system in the presence of unknown harmonic inputs. The method estimates the states and reconstructs the unknown harmonic input. An adaptive feedback model injects an input into the estimator such that the error between the estimator output and the actual output converges to zero despite the presence of the unknown harmonic input. Using input reconstruction based on a retrospective cost, the unknown harmonic input is
