In this Chapter, two kinds of MRAC techniques of MFC are presented. Basics of MRAC scheme is already given in Chap.  5. The transfer function models of anode and cathode chambers are discussed in previous Chapter. The first technique is MRAC using MIT rule and the second one is Lyapunov based MRAC technique. The performance of both the developed control schemes is validated through appropriate simulation work.
