: The purpose of adaptive observer is to perform joint stateparameter estimation of parameterized state space system. In this paper, we propose a new approach to adaptive observer design for multiinputmultioutput (MIMO) linear time varying (LTV) or stateaffine systems. It is conceptually simple and computationally efficient. In the case of noise free system with constant unknown parameters, global exponential convergence for joint stateparameter estimation is established. In the presence of noises, it is proved that the estimation errors are bounded and converge in the mean to zero if the noises are bounded and have zero means. We also present a unified formulation for some known adaptive observers based on dynamic transformations. This general framework enhances the conceptual simplicity of the proposed approach. Potential applications of the adaptive observer are online continuoustime system identification, fault detection and isolation, and adaptive control. Two numerical ...

In this paper, a discontinuous projection based output feedback adaptive robust control (ARC) scheme is constructed for a class of linear systems subjected to both parametric uncertainties and disturbances that might be output dependent. An observer is first designed to provide exponentially convergent estimates of the unmeasured states. This observer has an extended filter structure so that online parameter adaptation can be utilized to reduce the effect of possible large disturbances that have known shapes but unknown amplitudes. Estimation errors that come from initial state estimates and uncompensated disturbances are dealt with via certain robust feedback at each step of the backstepping design. Compared to other existing output feedback robust adaptive control schemes, the proposed method explicitly takes into account the effect of disturbances and uses both parameter adaptation and robust feedback to attenuate their effects for an improved tracking performance. Experimental results on the control of an iron core linear motor are presented to illustrate the effectiveness and achievable performance of the proposed scheme. �DOI: 10.1115/1.2363413�

Linear motors oer several advantages over their rotary counterparts in many applications requiring linear motion by eliminating mechanical transmission mechanisms. However, these advantages are obtained at the expense of added diculties in controlling such a system. This paper studies the high performance robust motion control of an epoxy core linear motor, which has a negligible electrical dynamics due to the fast response of the electrical subsystem. A discontinuous projection based adaptive robust control (ARC) scheme is constructed. Since only output signal is available for measurement, an observer is designed to provide exponentially convergent estimates of the unmeasurable states. This observer has an extended lter structure so that online parameter adaptation can be utilized to reduce the eect of the possible large nominal disturbance. Estimation errors that come from initial state estimates and uncompensated disturbances are eectively dealt with via certain robust...

This dissertation deals with the formulation, analysis and implementation of control systems for intelligent mechanical machines. These machines must operate safely under uncertain conditions without external supervision, and must determine and achieve, through adaptation and learning, the task that optimizes a prescribed performance criterion. The primary application described in this dissertation is an intelligent exercise machine which is safe to operate and determines the optimal exercise routine based on the apriori unknown strength characteristics of its user. In the selfoptimizing control problem a performance criterion, which depends on the machine behavior as well as on other unknown parameters, is to be optimized. Thus, unlike standard adaptive control applications where the desired behavior is speci ed apriori, it is necessary to explicitly determine the optimal behavior as part of the adaptation process, and to control the machine so that it behaves optimally. The proposed solution consists of an adaptive controller and a reference generator in tandem. The adaptive controller is capable of tracking arbitrary behaviors and the reference generator commands the control system to alternately follow either a training behavior or the estimated optimal behavior. The reference

This paper presents an adaptive algorithm to estimate states and unknown parameters simultaneously for nonlinear time invariant systems which depend affinely on the unknown parameters. The system output signals are filtered and reparameterized into a regression form from which the least squares error scheme is applied to identify the unknown parameters. The states are then estimated by an observer based on the estimated parameters. The major difference between this algorithm and existing adaptive observer algorithms is that the proposed algorithm does not require any special canonical forms or rank conditions. However, an output measurement condition is imposed. The stability and performance limit of this scheme are analyzed. Two examples are then presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed schemes.

Abstract—The backstepping control design procedure has been used to develop stabilizing controllers for time invariant plants that are linear or belong to some class of nonlinear systems. The use of such a procedure to design stabilizing controllers for plants with time varying parameters has been an open problem. In this paper we consider the backstepping design procedure for linear time varying (LTV) plants with known and unknown parameters. We first show that a backstepping controller can be designed for an LTV plant by following the same steps as in the linear timeinvariant (LTI) case and treating the plant parameters as constants at each time. Its stability properties however cannot be established by using the same Lyapunov function and techniques as in the LTI case. We then introduce a new parametrization and filter structure that takes into account the plant parameter variations leading to a new backstepping controller. The new

In this paper we present a deterministic analysis of an online scheme for learning very general classes of nonlinearly parametrized decision regions. The only input required is a sequence ((xk; yk)) k2Z + of data samples, where yk =1if xk belongs to the decision region of interest, and yk =,1 otherwise. Averaging results and Lyapunov theory are used to prove the stability of the scheme. In the course of this proof, conditions on both the parametrization and the sequence of input examples arise which are sufficient to guarantee convergence of the algorithm. A number of examples are presented, including the problem of learning an intersection of half spaces using only data samples.
