In this paper, an observer-based adaptive fuzzy-neural controller for a class of unknown nonlinear dynamical systems is developed. The observer-based output feedback control law and update law to tune on-line the weighting factors of the adaptive fuzzy-neural controller are derived. The total states of the nonlinear system are not assumed to be available(More)
The paper describes a novel application of the B-spline membership functions (BMF's) and the fuzzy neural network to the function approximation with outliers in training data. According to the robust objective function, we use gradient descent method to derive the new learning rules of the weighting values and BMF's of the fuzzy neural network for robust(More)
In this paper, we investigate a novel robust control approach for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems with multiple inputs containing sector nonlinearities and deadzones. Sliding mode control (SMC) is suggested to design stabilizing controllers for these uncertain nonlinear systems. The controllers guarantee the global reaching condition of the sliding(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel design of a GA-based output-feedback direct adaptive fuzzy-neural controller (GODAF controller) for uncertain nonlinear dynamical systems. The weighting factors of the direct adaptive fuzzy-neural controller can successfully be tuned online via a GA approach. Because of the capability of genetic algorithms (GAs) in directed(More)
A novel adaptive fuzzy-neural sliding-mode controller with H(infinity) tracking performance for uncertain nonlinear systems is proposed to attenuate the effects caused by unmodeled dynamics, disturbances and approximate errors. Because of the advantages of fuzzy-neural systems, which can uniformly approximate nonlinear continuous functions to arbitrary(More)
In this paper, an adaptive fuzzy controller for strict-feedback canonical nonlinear systems is proposed. The completely unknown nonlinearities and disturbances of the systems are considered. Since fuzzy logic systems can uniformly approximate nonlinear continuous functions to arbitrary accuracy, the adaptive fuzzy control theory is employed to derive the(More)
In this paper, a novel approach to adjust both the control points of B-spline membership functions (BMFs) and the weightings of fuzzy-neural networks using a reduced-form genetic algorithm (RGA) is proposed. Fuzzy-neural networks are traditionally trained by using gradient-based methods, which may fall into local minimum during the learning process. To(More)
