Part of the Systems & Control: Foundations & Applications book series (SCFA)


By now it is clear that adaptive control is concerned with the control of dynamical systems of which not all the characteristics are known as was extensively discussed in the previous chapters. An example is the stabilization of a system of which the order is known but the parameters are unknown. An intuitively appealing approach to this problem is to combine estimation of the parameters with the design of the controller. This approach has been analyzed extensively, and stability results have been obtained under various assumptions. Again we refer to Chapters 4 and 5.
