This paper deals with dynamic Blind Source Extraction (BSE) from where the mixing parameters characterizing the position of a source of interest (SOI) are allowed to vary over time. We present a new source extraction model called CvxCSV which is a parameter-reduced modification of the recent Constant Separation Vector (CSV) mixing model. In CvxCSV, the mixing vector evolves as a convex combination of its initial and final values. We derive a lower bound on the achievable mean interference-to-signal ratio (ISR) based on the Cramér-Rao theory. The bound reveals advantageous properties of CvxCSV compared with CSV and compared with a sequential BSE based on independent component extraction (ICE). In particular, the achievable ISR by CvxCSV is lower than that by the previous approaches. Moreover, the model requires significantly weaker conditions for identifiability, even when the SOI is Gaussian.
