Adaptive model reference control applied to linear time invariant systems is one of the mainstream developments in the adaptive control literature. It concerns the imposition of a completely new input-output behavior on the plant: both zeros and poles of the plant’s transfer function are to be changed. In this chapter we discuss this problem focusing on a single algorithm that achieves the desired objective. We treat the so called ideal case, in which the plant to be controlled can be represented by a member of the model class, for which the algorithm is designed. In Chapter 8 we discuss results when this assumption is violated.
