A New Approach to Adaptive Nonlinear Controls
S. H. Lam
An accurate and realistic mathematical model is usually considered
essential in the design of controllers. The present paper presents a new
approach which permits the controller to approximately accomplish
the desired control objectives without the need for detailed knowledge
of a mathematical model of the physical system---provided reliable and
accurate sensor measurements of the output variables and their time
derivatives are available.
