Certainty Equivalence Adaptive Control of Plants With Unmatched Uncertainty Using State Feedback

A systematic design procedure using state-feedback certainty equivalence adaptive control (CEAC) technique is developed for linear plants and a class of nonlinear plants with unmatched uncertainty. It is shown that a reduced order observer and adaptive laws with normalization in conjunction with the CEAC law result in a stable overall system in the case of… CONTINUE READING
