[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A novel adaptive reference model control design is proposed to approach for a class of nonlinear system. The general description of this system is presented. The conditions of the tracking control scheme are discussed. The design of feed forward matrix and the iterative regulative algorithm of feedback matrix are put forward, which may lead the system to meet a good tracking performance. This kind of design’s advantage is verified by the simulation results.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Electrode regulator system of arc furnace's nonlinearity is analyzed. Piecewise-linearization method is used. Based on the Liapunov's second method a MRAC law is deduced to deal with the nonlinearity. We found that this kind of design fits the system well and can be generalized to a kind of SISO nonlinear system from the simulation using Matlab6.5.
