This paper studies the use of RBF neural networks as key components of adaptive controllers aimed at controlling flexible robotic arms. The RBF networks in the proposed controllers are in charge of approximating the inverse dynamics of the arm. To this end, an efficient control law that exploits the approximation capabilities of RBF networks and the(More)
Results of the investigation of the performance of solar cells when directly coupled to a conventional three-phase power network are presented. This approach dissociates the electricity production problem from the electric energy storage problem. Extensive studies of the required power inverter are performed. Preliminary simulation results indicate that ac(More)
Optimizing a heat pump driven forced-air domestic heating system utilizing solar/thermal energy storage and off-peak storage from the electric power network is discussed. The system proposed is modeled and simulated on the digital computer. An optimal controller is then developed to maximize comfort and minimize conventional energy consumption. The(More)
