Adaptive Control Via Input Matching Despite Plant Structure Uncertainty

  • C. Richard JohnsonJr.


Adaptive control methods based on input matching bypass the identifiability and/or exact model-matching constraints of the bulk of existing adaptive control methods. The focus on input matchability allows the use of general controller structures capable of adequately controlling a plant, the structure of which may arbitrarily vary within an allowable class.
