Adaptive internal model control: The discrete-time case Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper considers the design and analysis of a discrete-time H2 optimal robust adaptive controller based on the internal model control structure. The Certainty Equivalence principle of adaptive control is used to combine a discrete-time robust adaptive law with a discrete-time H2 internal model controller to obtain a discrete-time adaptive H2 internal model control scheme with provable guarantees of stability and robustness. The approach used parallels the earlier results obtained for the continuous-time case. Nevertheless, there are some differences which, together with the widespread use of digital computers for controls applications, justifies a separate exposition.
