This paper presents the development of a novel adaptive backstepping sliding mode control law for temperature control of an industrial heat exchanger system. Backstepping control law has been utilized during the design of reaching mode of the sliding mode controller to ensure a smoother convergence towards sliding surface. However, in order to mitigate the problems of over-conservative approach of robust design, an adaptive mechanism has also been incorporated to find out the appropriate value… CONTINUE READING
