In this paper, we see adaptive control as a three-part adaptive-filtering problem. First, the dynamical system we wish to control is modeled using adaptive system-identification techniques. Second, the dynamic response of the system is controlled using an adaptive feedforward controller. No direct feedback is used, except that the system output is monitored(More)
The detection and disposal of antipersonnel land mines is one of the most difficult and intractable problems faced in ground conflict. This paper presents detection methods which use a separated-aperture microwave sensor and an artificial neural network pattern classifier. Several data-specific preprocessing methods are developed to enhance neural network(More)
—In some battery applications, such as in hybrid electric vehicles or battery electric vehicles, it is necessary to be able to estimate, in real time, the present available power that may be sourced by the battery pack. Similarly, in rechargeable packs, it may be necessary to know how much charging power the pack can accept. These values must be carefully(More)
I. Abstract Adaptive control is seen as a two part problem, (a) control of plant dynamics, and (b) control of plant disturbance. Conventionally , one uses feedback control to treat both problems simultaneously. Tradeoffs and compromises are necessary to achieve good solutions, however. The method proposed here, based on inverse control, treats the two(More)
