The article discusses the method of identifying parameters for interval nonlinear models of static systems. The method is based on solving an optimization problem with a smooth objective function. Additional coefficients are added to the objective function's variables to solve the optimization problem, complicating the computational procedures. The computational complexity of quasi-Newton methods used to solve the optimization problem is analyzed. Excessive computational complexity is caused by many iterations when transforming the value of the objective function to zero. To address this, the article proposes using the optimization stop criterion based on the determination of the model's adequacy at the current iteration of the computational optimization procedure. Numerical experiments were conducted to identify nonlinear models of depending the pH of the environment in the fermenter of the biogas plant on influencing factors. It was established that the proposed criterion reduced the number of iterations by 4.5 times, which is proportional to the same reduction in the number of calculations of the objective function. Gotten results are also important for reducing the computational complexity of algorithms of structural identification of these models.
