Predictor-Based Self Tuning Control with Constraints

  • Vytautas Kaminskas
Part of the Optimization and Its Applications book series (SOIA, volume 4)


Design problems of predictor-based self tuning digital control systems for different types of linear and non-linear dynamical plants are discussed. Control systems based on generalized minimum variance algorithms with amplitude and introduction rate restrictions for the control signal are considered in the article.

Key words

predictor-based self tuning control generalized minimum variance control constraints for the control signal
