Motor Control using Adaptive Time-Delay Learning

  • Claudia Ungerer
Conference paper


This paper presents the application of time-delay learning to motor control. An extended version of the Adaptive Time-Delay Neural Network is used guaranteeing a more precise delay learning. This approach is applied to motor control by supporting a traditional PI-controller when controlling a combustion engine as a neural co-controller showing that it outperforms the traditional Adaptive Time-Delay Neural Network.
