Because the algorithms developed and discussed in Chapter 2 require the satisfaction of certain positivity constraints if asymptotic model following is to be guaranteed, various modifications have been developed so that the algorithms can be used in a much wider class of systems. Section 3.1 shows how a feedforward compensator can easily be used so that the resulting augmented system satisfies the positivity constraints.
