Recently, the paper  introduced a method for model order estimation based on penalizing adaptively the likelihood (PAL). In this paper, we use the PAL based order estimation method for a nonlinear sinusoidal model and study its asymptotic statistical properties. We prove that the estimator of the model order using the PAL rule is consistent. Simulation examples are presented to illustrate the performance of the PAL method for small sample sizes and to compare it with that of three information criterion-based methods.
