Hi there,
an answer from someone who's not an expert in the field but used to
play around with time series:
The action of simulating a process using with input parameters then
estimating the parameters is not an invariant, especially when the
process involves nonlinearities.

Did you try increasing simulation length and the burn-in to see if you
get more stable results ?
