In the presence of parameter uncertainty tracking control can result in significant tracking errors. To overcome this problem adaptive control is applied, which estimates and compensates for the errors of the uncertain parameters. A new adaptive tracking control scheme is presented for standard fully actuated port-Hamiltonian mechanical systems. The(More)
A dynamic extension for position feedback of portHamiltonian mechanical systems is studied. First we look at the consequences for the matching equations when applying Interconnection and Damping Assignment Passivity-Based Control (IDA-PBC). Then we look at the possibilities of asymptotically stabilizing a class of port-Hamiltonian mechanical systems without(More)
