Adaptive control is a well-established and powerful methodology to deal with systems with unknown constant or slowly time-varying parameters. The basic idea of adaptive control is to employ a parameter adaptation scheme to estimate those unknown parameters and replace the unknown parameters in the feedback controller with their estimates.
