Switching adaptive control is one of the advanced approaches to adaptive control. By employing an array of simple candidate controllers, a properly designed monitoring function and switching law, this approach is capable to search in real time for a correct candidate controller to achieve the given control objective such as stabilization and set-point regulation. This approach can deal with large parameter uncertainties and offers good robustness against unmodelled dynamics. This article offers a brief introduction to switching adaptive control, including some historical background, basic concepts, key design components, and technical issues.
